Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Very professional operation by Dr. Samie and his staff. They checked in the next day and continued excellent treatment through to the removal of the stitches a week later.

Yes! Dr. Samie was very professional and I was pleased with the care he gave me, along with his team. Dr. Samie and his team were honest in letting me know that he could make a better decision on how to best treat my condition, by first reviewing the CD of my MRI, which was not available to him at the time of my visit. Dr. Samie was kind, professional and caring. I look forward to hearing from Dr. Samie once he's looked at and examined the results to help him determine how to treat the growth on my right knee.

Went to have a growth (which thankfully turned out to be a benign cyst) removed from my face. One appointment for the consultation, one for the procedure, one to have two stitches removed. Dr. Samie and his staff were professional and very skilled throughout. The actual removal was efficient and extremely clean. He's not much of a folksy conversationalist, but if you're more interested in excellent medical care than chatting he gets top marks.

Amazing experience with Dr Samie and his entire staff -- I was terrified going into this procedure and they did a great job of helping me stay calm and get through it. The greatest part is that they got all the cancer on the first pass, and then did a beautiful job of putting the wound back together -- I've healed unbelievably well and I'll just end up with a light line scar. It was surprisingly pain-free -- I didn't even have to take a single Tylenol. I can't thank Dr Samie and his team enough!

Dr. Samie is fantastic! I cannot say enough good things. I hate going to see doctors and was very nervous about my procedure. He is so kind and reassuring and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend Dr. Samie to anyone looking for a Mohs surgeon!
