He always takes time to address my concerns and cares about my progress. I appreciate his caring character. He is a blessing to have for a doctor.

The receptionist always greet me with kindness and compassion and it's much appreciated and the nurses as well. Dr Samii sometimes has been the nurse when she's not available and he's just as kind and compassionate.that's the kind of person he is he does what ever it takes to care for the patient. He's humble and treats all people with dignity and respect. He is a wonderful human being.
