A family friend introduced Dr. Sami to us in our Church. She said he will help us with my father neurological conditions. He is such a fine doctor. He explained my father conditions better than the other neurologist we saw before and ordered appropriate tests. we are very pleased with his compassionate care.

I felt compelled to offer my opinion of Dr. Sami. The doc was awesome and amazing. He was calm and thorough. I am completely impressed and trusted him. I wish he keeps practicing in Meriden since I do not know anybody better than him to take care of me. Hope he stays healthy and in practice for many years to come. He is kind, competent and empathetic. Kudos to Dr. Sami.

Dr Sami, my former neurologist from Mid-State Hospital in Meriden CT misdiagnosed my ‘Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus’ as ‘Diabetic Neuropathy’, prescribed monthly B12 shots I had symptoms of ‘Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus’ which include balance problems and falling several times. I had to use a wheelchair outside the house and a walker or cane inside the house. This lasted for about a year until I went to another neurologist he correctly diagnosed my condition now I can even play golf!

I find Dr. Sami to be very thoughtful in his approach. He explains his findings well and takes the time necessary. A visit to his office is not stressful at all. My advice is to disregard the negative reviews. Sometimes there are just bad reviewers.

I went to Dr. Sami for a nerve test due to calf pain. I explained to him what I was doing to try to ease the pain. After the visit, he told me what to do to ease my pain. Apparently he hadn't listened to me, because he told me to do the same things I had just told him I was already doing. I did not go back.

The office staff is totally incompetent. I scheduled an appointment 2 wks. prior to today due to a traumatic brain injury and had my records faxed from my referral Dr. I walked into my appointment today and the staff could not find my appointment nor my faxed records! One staffer said she wasn't responsible because she was on vaca for the past 2 wks. These 2 women acted like idiots. Sami should really be looking for better office representatives. No wonder he's taking on new patients!

Dr. Sami provided excellent care and explained all my conditions and neurological problems. I switched from another practice to him. I found him to be very responsive to my issues and caring doctor with good bedside manner. He is always pleasant to deal with. My experience has been very positive.

Other doctors simply treat their patients with medicines but forget to do the most important thing which you do – help them to move on with their lives with motivating words and inspirational thoughts. You are fantastic that helped many patients not with medicine but through natural therapy. Thanks for everything doc.

Nope. He actually tries to market his own 'vitamin supplements' to you while you are in the chair! He did not listen to me, just gave a few one dose 'samples' of majorly top tier expensive drugs. His prescription for every day was counter effective w/another drug I take, and he did not pick up on this. I would try someone else.

Not a great a doctor. He was obsessed with M.S and did not treat my Lyme disease appropriately. He was a huge alarmist also, I would skip this doctor if possible.
