Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Samuel "We do our best to treat every patient who comes to us for help with great respect and dignity humanly possible. We try to diagnose the problem with the information collected from the history,examination and necessary tests available to us today.We do not believe that a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease can be made on the basis of a lab test only and we donot treat blood tests results.Once the diagnosis is made we offer the patients the latest and state of the art treatments available to us at this time.We understand that we maynot be able to make a diagnosis all the time and even when the diagnosis is made we cannot treat or cure every disease.We do our best to provide our patients with the best care available today to ease their suffering and improve the quality of life.We donot claim to help everybody,only the Great Physician can.We just do dress the wound ,the great Physician heals the wound."

First off, the receptionist, well one of them, was very rude. The nurse that came outback in the waiting room to get me, just singnaled me to come in. She was complaining about her hot flashes and was super rude. He was the same way. I will not be back whatsoever.
