Dr. AlSamara is knowledgeable and shows concern for me, his patient. It is easy to feel confidant in his treatment and direction. When we moved I thought I would continue to see the excellent cardiologist who was my doctor in another city. Dr. AlSamara's care and treatment convinced me that I should transfer to his practice here.

Dr. AlSamara has been my cardiologist for almost two years and is one of the finest doctors I have ever known. He is observant, listens attentively, explains everything clearly, and answers my questions very thoughly. He has a genuine concern for his patients' welfare and presents a compassionate and comforting manner. Having cardiac issues frightens me terribly. D AlSamara understands this and his calming reassurance helps me get through the rough times.

Dr. Mershed AlSamara, MD is a great doctor. He is one of the best doctors I have seen for my health care. If it wasn't for him and my primary care doctor, I might not be here today. Dr. AlSamara has my full respect as a health care provider and would recommend him to anyone.

When Dr AlSamara entered the exam room it was obvious he was familiar with my medical history and the events that had prompted this visit. We discussed the results of the medical tests and he questioned me regarding my symptoms. He was very compassionate and understanding, and took time to explain matters so that I completely understood the problem and the additional tests he wanted to complete.
