Dr. Moufawad and his team are outstanding. I have been a patient of his for a decade and I credit him with being able to walk. He has helped me manage my chronic disc herniations and neuropathy in my left leg. He is an outstanding doctor and really listens to his patients. One of the best doctors and medical teams in the UH system.

On this particular visit, I had mentioned to the doctor a severe pain in my lower shoulder area and forearm. I had pulled a muscle possibly and asked how I can help it to feel better. He explained he could give me a pain injection to help and if it isn't feeling better he would order a x-ray. Within minutes after he said he'd give me the injection, he returned pretty quickly. He explained it contains a numbing agent to give me faster relief. Wow, by the time I got to my car, the pain really subsided. I'm feeling so much better now. Thank you Dr Moufawad.

Sami moufawad is my best doctor, I feel comfortable with him and can talk to him as if he were family. He gives me advice on my overall condition and not just his specialty. Sometimes it takes time to get in to see him, but I know he is giving his time to other patients. I can't count on him not rushing me out of the office like some doctors do. I truly believe he cares for my well being.

Dr. Moufawad is one of the best physicians I have ever met with. He listened to my concerns, he was respectful, he didn't talk down to me, he had a wonderful bedside manner, he had a clear understanding of the concerns I brought up, and I left the appointment in a better mood than when I walked in. I already mentioned this, but the biggest thing to me is that Dr. Moufawad listened to me, he didn't brush off anything that I brought to his attention. A lot of doctors could learn to treat their patients with that same dignity he showed me.

Dr. Moufawad was very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. He was empathetic and treated me as a person not just a protoplasm. Time did not seem to be a constraint and I felt that he listened and understood my unique situation. I would recommend Dr. Moufawad to anyone who has the same problems that I do. He is a credit to the medical profession in general and as a person in particular.

Dr. Moufawad and his staff are exceptional. I have seen this doctor for over 15 years and he has helped me improve my quality of life immensely. His knowledge, personal care towards patients, explanations of medical issues are always detailed and easily understood. The office staff, nurses are so kind and pleasant. I have not found any other physicians/staff that treat me as kindly as the staff working with Dr. Moufawad. I have two other UH doctors who I find to be great doctors, but their office staff are not as welcoming. Dr. Moufawad has been intergral in helping me manage my chronic pain by giving me options other than 24/7 pain meds. He also assisted me going off of very strong medication, initially prescribed by another UH doctor. He is also the very best at facet injections, and radio frequency ablation. I had several other doctors prior to seeing Dr Moufawad perform injections with zero success, and no pain relief. There should be more doctors like Dr. Moufawad, in my opinion.

Dr. Moufawad is an exceptional physician. He is very knowledgeable and consistently focused on providing quality care. Dr. Moufawad is familiar with medical history, other professionals medical progress reports & recommendations and he documents progress & treatment plan. He listens & asks questions, discusses conditions & treatment, and offers explanations that are easily understood. Dr. Moufawad always spends the time that is needed to address medical concerns. I have occasionally spoken with other patients waiting to see him & we agree that Dr. Moufawad is an outstanding physician.
