What People Say About Dr. Samer Touma, PHD

I first heard of Sam when working within the court system. I started seeing his name on many reports required by the court system to assess a person's mental state to determine their competency to stand trial. I remember reading these reports and marveling at the succinctness of his report, all the while staying within the confines of diagnosing the patient/defendant. On a personal note, I have reached out to Sam several times in the past year in an effort to find some help for a dear family member. Sam was kind, compassionate, and eager to help me each and every time. I was overwhelmed with my family member's heartbreaking situation, but Sam calmed me and comforted me, assuring me that there was help available.

Dr. Touma showed wisdom and determination to help me through recovery from an abusive relationship. His empathy and kindness, coupled with his no b.s. attitude, gave me strength and determination when most needed. He is a quality person. I learned I could trust him, and his advice, through this time. I believe you can too.

Dr Touma has such keen insight into the heart of the problem. His wisdom and experience coupled with his genuine concern for your well being and mental health makes him stand out in the field. I’ve been to other counselors but never met anyone that comes close to Dr. Touma. If you really want help and support he’s the best there is!

I have worked with Dr. Touma for over a decade on family law cases. It is refreshing to work with a competent professional who is grounded and real. While able to meet clients on a relatable level, he also has a persistent ability to speak truth in a language they can hear. He is excellent in court, and equally proficient at untangling angered and distressed parents outside of the court system. As a professional, I value his input and wisdom, and cannot thank him enough for the quality and care he brings to his work. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Touma is hands down the best physician to see if you need someone to help you work through grief, tragedy, addiction, abuse, OCD, or any other emotional burden that may be weighing down your daily life. His years of experience, paired with his calming demeanor, will truly help you rectify any mental instability that you may be facing. He is not only highly trained, he has an innate gift to help his patients recognize the mental burden, work through it, and come out on the other side of tragedy to live a full and joyous life. I can’t say enough amazing things about this man! He has helped me and several members of my family overcome emotional tragedy. We are better people today because of his service.

Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Touma. We have engaged him for marital counseling as well as support for our teenager who greatly benefits from the sessions. Convenient location and very helpful staff.

Arrogant obnoxious overall disturbing experience. Highly discourage anyone to utilize his services. He's one of very few in the area. Do yourself a favor and drive out of town
