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.

Dr. Samawi has done a great job as my doctor. I suffered heart failure and had cancer to deal with. Dr. Samawi was always there for me when I was going through difficult times in 2014 and 2015. He was patient with me and understood the pains and pressures that I was going through. I am glad to met him and have him as my doctor. He has kept my diabetes and high blood pressure under control and now I feel great that it is at an acceptable level today.
