Dr. Sawalha is great. She listens to your concerns. You can discuss options and alternatives with her. If you are lacking knowledge about something she will educate you. As a nurse I find her to be up to date on current healthcare trends. Highly recommend her.

It's shocking to me to see so many positive reviews here, and in such a short span of time. My experience echoes the experience of the person with the bad review. She was condescending, didn't care about my work or self-care for my condition, and was quick to assume me to be stupid or lacking basic knowledge about how the body works. I left and cried in my car, and I'm currently looking for another endocrinologist but am very shaken up.

Dr. Sawalha is a doctor that really listens to her patient and was the first doctor I have seen that was really willing to help with the issues that I have been dealing with. So happy with her as my doctor, she really takes the time to go over test results and includes you in the treatment plan. Would highly recommend her.

Was being treated for Type 1 Diabetes by my family physician for several years. Units per day of insulin were averaging 85. There was no update from family physician as to new therapies, drugs, etc. Began treatment under Dr. Sawalha who changed diag. to Type 2. With other meds. recommened, insulin units per day dropped to 30. I highly recommend Dr. Fida Sawalha for knowledge, bedside manner and thoroughness!

Dr. Sawalha is by far one of the most caring medical professionals that I've every encountered in my 63 yrs. She listens like a best friend, looks you in the eyes when you're talking, and discusses the treatment options and medications with you . She works WITH you, thoroughly explaining everything and her reasons for her decisions. You can FEEL her concern for you as a human being, not just treating an injury or medical condition. She is a rare gem and I am honored to be a patient of hers
