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. Samuel Medaris and his staff are people I would not send my worst enemy to out of respect for my enemy! I brought my CT scan and report into Dr. Medaris's office 3 weeks before my scheduled follow-up appointment to give the Doctor time to study it before he saw me. I thought I was doing him a favor. On the day of the follow-up, Dr. Medaris comes into the room only to tell me that they have lost my CT scan and report and don't know where they are. If that was not bad enough, Dr. Medaris and his staff both accused me of not bringing in my CT scan disc and written report at all. 30 minutes after I stormed out of the room and left, Dr. Medaris leaves a voicemail on my phone saying that they found my disc and report. Well, where was it for the 3 weeks you had it before the follow-up? I feel that this "practice" has no respect for their patients at all if they wish to sink to these levels.

I had a deviated septum from years ago and a large benign growth in my nose, and after reading the reviews of how painless surgery was with Dr. Medaris, decided he was the one! I was NOT disappointed! I had really no pain afterwards, just slight discomfort from the stents in my nose. After having those removed, its unbelievable how good I feel! Dr. Medaris was very informative, and very personable. I highly recommend him to anyone.

In October 2016 Dr. Medaris straightened my deviated septum and removed a large maxillary sinus cyst. There was next to no pain during recovery. He removed the cyst through the nostril even though a different surgeon had told me they didn't recommend removing the cyst because they would have to cut through the gums in my mouth to reach it. I can breath so well now and should have done this years ago. On top of being a great surgeon he is a really nice person!

Dr Medaris has treated me kindly, and taken care of my difficult sinus problems. He takes time to make sure I understand my condition and what surgery would involve. I am very pleased to have him a health care provider for me and my family.
