I would not recommend Dr. Sameer because of the nasty person that spoke to me on the phone. She did not have the patience to answer my questions it seems that she was bothered. I gave Dr. Sameer Azhak facilty a 1 star because I can not give it a zero. The person who answered my call was very rude and nasty. If you are dealing with a patient you have to be courteous and understanding. I told her to cancel my appointment because of her rudeness. She said ok and hung up.

I love dr azhak!! My grandmother was his patient. And Thank God we found him!! I have never seen someone take the amount of time as he did to make sure me( the family) was at ease. He explained everything to me! My grandma loved him! & trusted his opinion 110%. She always said to me if dr azhak thinks I need to do this or that I will do it!! I would go into his office with a list of questions and he would answer EVERY SINGLE ONE - & not get mad that I'm taking up his time! THATS A GOOD DR!
