What Patients Are Saying
I searched reviews for a local dermatologist in Lake Nona after a subpar experience at another local dermatologist office. Dr Sami and the whole team were great! The office was clean, the staff were friendly and Dr Sami was kind, knowledgeable and thorough. I’m glad I found this office and Dr Sami!K F4/25/2021
Dr Sami is amazing. I had been bounced between so many doctors everyone just giving me the same discussion. Oh lets try treatment A, well it never worked so bounce to another Dr and given treatment B. I finally got to Dr Sami and said look everyone has tried all these things. He actually sat down not some 3 min in and out visit which we talked about every biopsy I had, every drug I tried and all the effects. He put it very simply that I had an autoimmune disease, that was causing me problems in my mouth and eyes. He said, that it is treatable and that we just need to run labs to check things and followup on how I respond and to call with any questions. It was the most thorough Doctors visit I had in yearsM Smith4/11/2021
