I saw Medhat Sami several times for asthma and he was always extremely nasty and condescending and verbally abusive and was a terrible doctor.

Very unprofessional doctor, as well as daughter who is training. They both told me to stop looking up articles on the internet to diagnose myself. First off, that's not what I do, if I did, then I wouldn't be wasting mytime trecking to the doctors office. Common sense. Secondly, if a patient is coming to you with stomach pains, you don't tell them to stop reading stuff on the internet. You try to do what you can to ease the pain. Do not recommend this practice.

This dr has far too many patients on his panel to be effective he does not spend time with his patients. He has a nice staff and interns that take all of the vitals and updates his charts but once hecomes in the examination room he in and out in less than 3 min. Also every time you tell him something he doesn't want to hear it. No going back

The service here is absolutely impeccable. Every single employee I encountered was caring, responsive, and friendly. You can rest assured that you're being taken care of with Dr. Sami and his staff. The attention I received felt genuine, andI left with not a single question unanswered. I was also seen within seconds of entering. I've been to both of Dr. Sami's locations, and even though there are doctors that are closer to where I live I don't see myself ever switching.

His office was overbooked almost every time I went there, and oftentimes I would be attended to by physicians assistants rather than Dr. Sami himself. He always seemed like he was in a rush to get me out the door andnever really took the time to fully understand my situation.
