Chronic Care Management Services

We are excited to announce the addition of Chronic Care Management Services for Medicare patients at our practice. Chronic conditions, for example, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression, are ongoing medical problems that must be managed effectively in a partnership between the healthcare team and the patient to maintain the best possible health.

If you are a Medicare patient, you are eligible for this enhanced program. Our nurse, Anna Norwood, BSN, RN, PCCN, will call you once per month to work on your overall health, and care for your needs, whatever they may be. Please ask about chronic care management at your next visit.

Office Location

Dr. Shamim has opened his office at 11119 Rockville Pike, Suite 101, Rockville, MD 20852. We are conveniently located in the Rockville/Bethesda area, easily accessible by Metro.
