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. Sami is one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. Dr. Sami is knowledgeable, professional, and kind. She is attentive, listens to all of my concerns, and answers all of my questions. She takes her time with every patient, and makes sure that the patient's health is of top priority. I highly recommend her to any person that wants a doctor who cares about their health.

She was dismissive and rude, and insisted my condition was getting better when it wasn’t. Who does that? I also had to wait over an hour even after making an appointment for practically every visit. Waste of time.

Starting with the girls at the front desk and the nurse are super friendly and very professional. Well Dr. Shazia is very nice and make the patient feel comfortable and give you the time that you need. Also and must important you don’t have to wait long for an appointment, if you need it the girls will squeeze you the same day.

The definition of money hungry doctor. They tried to bill my insurance for services I do not need!!!!! They also denied appointment to provide me with required vaccines for my job. Their policy is that they don't do just vaccines!!! I truly hope the medical field becomes more humbling and true to HELPING others.

They are nice but not very efficient. I had issues getting my physical, they charge me for my own medical records. They are not good at following up. For example, I had lab work that showed a severe vitamin D deficiency and I had to wait to be seen for the prescription. The office staff should be able to complete some parts of the medical forms and the doctor reviews and signs. I would prefer a more aggressive approach. They always have appointments available though.
