Ratings for Dr. Samir S. Keblawi
I always leave feeling heard which as a mother is VERY important to me! Our family has been seeing Dr. Keblawi for over 8 years. He never rushes the appointments and if he is unsure of the diagnosis will work with me to figure it out! We love him!
Dr. Keblawi is amazing. We have had the opportunity of working with him for the last ten years. One of the things we love so much about Dr. Keblawi is how consistent he is and how he ALWAYS makes sure to take his time with us. Regardless of what issues we bring with us to our appointments, Dr. Keblawi makes sure to give us the time we need. I would highly recommend Dr. Keblawi to anyone needing a pediatrician without reservation. We appreciate him and his team and are blessed to be part of a great practice.
Dr. Keblawi is one of the top five best doctors I have ever had. He is not only very knowledgeable about meds for children but he is also very personable—a rare combination in doctors. I would recommend Dr. Keblawi to anyone for their pediatric needs. He really helped us at a time when my daughter’s meds were no longer working. His recommendations brought her behavior back under control and have kept her stable. I am very grateful for what he did for us.
Dr. Keblawi was able to resolve several issues and concerns in ONE office visit for my son that I have been waiting and struggling with his previous pediatrician with for nearly 9 months. He is very knowledgeable, results-oriented and a pediatrician that I would recommend to anyone looking. His nurse is fantastic and I literally left feeling like a thousand pounds had been lifted off of my shoulders that has been there for over 9 months. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this man! As a first time Mom, a Mom who worries and a Mom who is very attentive to the needs of her son, he put me at ease and resolved several issues for me.
Very friendly physician who works in a very busy (much too busy) practice. His friendliness doesn't make him a good doctor though. He has poor follow thru (ie: after moving, I went over records and discovered at least three abnormal findings that were never brought to my attention..) Like someone else mentioned, he would try and reassure my real concerns away...about things that needed to be addressed and looked into. He was always in a hurry, and so much just fell thru the cracks. We are so thankful our children are no longer under his care.
This man is scary and has poor attention to detail. I have 2 children that he failed to correctly diagnose and treat on multiple occasion. One of these children has suffered long term speach issues as a result of not diagnosing multiple ear drum perforations. This child was also having eating issues as a result of chronic unresolved ear infections. The pattern was to minimize our concerns and reassure us out the door. It took demanding a developement check and subsequent ENT and hearing appointments to realize that there was scar tissue from undiagnosed and multiple perforations. I later lerned that recurring ear infections of this nature make it painful to eat, another complaint of ours was was feeding difficulty and continued low birth weight. Our concern was regularly minimized and told that it was because he was born small. Bottom line, my feelings about this doctor are very hostile. For his sake I hope I never run in to him. A new doctor in our case was very revealing.
