We started my young son three years ago with Dr. Saba Samee at the suggestion of my GP. My boy was experiencing asthma and we needed someone we could trust. From day one, Dr. Samee was engaged, professional, and listened carefully to our concerns. She had a calming influence on my son who never fears office visits. Her treatment plan has worked out perfectly for us as my son hasn't had an asthma attack in years. We plan to stay with this practice and I have referrred several neighbors.

If I could give Dr. Samee 100+ STARS, I would. She is an EXEMPLARY DOCTOR, as she SAVED my SON'S LIFE. I can not thank her enough. He could not breathe. He cried, and we cried with him. Even the Children's Hospital in DC and the Primary could not get his asthma under control. We felt helpless & hopeless with many emergencies, and missed days at school & work for us. Within months under Dr. Samee's care, she prescribed precisely what he needed, and her asthma plan WORKED. He is free of attacks.

Dr. Samee can come off as arrogant and condescending and did not seem to take my concerns seriously.

My wife and I both see Dr. Samme and are quite pleased. In fact, she saved my wife's life by ordering a chest X-ray. That revealed a Stage I cancer tumor, and surgery safely removed it. My wife had no symptoms and would have never discovered it early without Dr. Samee.

Dr. Samee is the only Dr. that I saw that figured out why I was having such a horrible time coughing. I coughed so bad it was scary. she ordered test after test and said finally, I will try one more and this was an upper Gastrointestinal study and they final diagnosed with GERD. My coughing is 110% better since I started taking meds for this. Dr. Samee referred me to a Gastroenterologist and a Internal Meds to follow me for other issues. I love and respect her.

Dr. Samee is dismissive of patients' concerns and condescending in her interactions with patients.
I am committed to listening to my patient's questions and concerns. I make it a point to never be dismissive. I take a very detailed history, perform extensive testing, and review my assessment with the patient. I always welcome questions and allow for the opportunity to have a meaningful dialogue. Unfortunately, sometimes allergies are not the cause of a patient's complaints. I am sorry that you felt this way and I hope we can work on helping you with your concerns.

I've been working with Dr. Samee on my allergies for years. She always listens carefully and provides an appropriate level of information with her responses. I will continue to use her. The only thing I don't like is that sometimes when I go in for shots, the waiting room is over-crowded, but that's not Dr. Samee's fault. There are people with no boundaries who bring 3 or more extra people just for one person to get a shot--very annoying.
