Would never recommend this AS AN OBGYN**** the waiting room was awful, dirty and cramped. The front desk was very slow and seemed like they had better things to do. After waiting almost an hour, the doctor claimed she couldn't help me without an additional ultrasound done and then another appointment. Pass.

Dr Saam efficiently and carefully examined me to understand my back pain. She was quickly able to pinpoint the issue and recommend treatment. She was very supportive of my desire to avoid pain medication and pursue physical therapy only. The office/waiting room experience was not as great. ZocDoc confirmed my appointment for 8:30am however none of the staff (except Dr Saam) was there when I arrived. Over the next 20 minutes I saw them all arrive, chat, get coffee, etc. No one asked what time my appointment was and it wasn't until I asked the receptionist and found out that the earlist appointments they accept are 9am.

I recently moved to the area and was looking for a new PCP when Dr. Saam came on my radar. I had a cranioplasty several years ago and was concerned about the plate that had been put in. Dr. Saam was very nice and interested in my concerns. At least that's how she seemed. She had ordered an X-ray to make sure everything was where it should be, and her assistants said that someone from the office would give me a call back as soon as the Dr. took a look at it. That was three weeks ago and still no call back. Unfortunately I have given up on Dr. Saam despite her wonderful disposition.

Nothing less than an amazing first time experience in Dr. Shida Saam's office. We were running a little late due to just having moved to CA from IL and not knowing the area at all and felt a bit stressed, but to our pleasant surprise the office staff were understanding, pleasant and patient from start to finish. We would highly recommend this medical office for the whole family

I liked Dr. Sam a lot. She was very nice and seems to genuinely care about her patients. My only complaint was the wait time (I was there 50 min before seeing Dr. Saam). Despite the wait, I liked Dr. Saam and the location was convenient and has free parking, so I plan to keep seeing her.

Dr Shida Saam is very thorough. She listens, comments/discusses my concerns. She checks last time I had a colonoscopy, when my cholesterol and thyroid bloodwork needs to be repeated. She is very pleasant and approachable. Thank you.
