Dr Saymeh is such a caring doctor. He has been there for my Dad who is 90 and recently had his esphagus stretched. I would highly recommend Dr Saymeh - his staff is also very professional.

I Was sent to him, and initially excited with his pedigree and apparent knowledge, Boy would I be disappointed. After being his patient for several years and several inpatient experience and one bowel resection I quickly realized he either didn’t understand my disease process or just didn’t care about his patients. Unfortunately the later was confirmed when I was referred to Emory Health as newly diagnosed with my disease even though I’d had over 100 hospitalizations and had two surgeries as well as receiving every medication on the market, some with horrid side effects that ruined my life and my career. Then his office wouldn’t even send any medical records to Emory Healthcare to help me out. I had to chase down all my other records through primary care and hospitals I had been admitted to. If you have an advanced disease Don’t go here and don’t be comforted by the plaques in his office stating he was a top 100 physician. That doesn’t mean what you think it does.

Over charges your insurance, then over charges you. If you refuse, or can't pay your balance, he will not see you. Even when you do pay, he only spends 5 minutes with you. He's ALL about the money because he has to pay for his $800K house. Terrible bedside manners. Don't trust his office manager.

I was referred to Dr Saymeh for a colonoscopy june 6. I did not meet the doctor until I was on surgical table. Was given instructions for the procedure by his NP. I was told a prescriptions would be sent to the pharmacy. To my surprise the laxative prescribed cost $92. After procedure 6/18 had problems with bleeding wasnt sure if it were hemorrhoids or what and for 3 days couldn't reach anyone after leaving mess. Finally had to drive there to get "what's your problem" from the nurse SCARY
