Dr. Oweida is one of the best doctors I have dealt with. After being injured at work I went to go see him . He knew exactly what was wrong. I have complete trust in him and would recommend him to everyone. He operated one my left ankle and explained everything very well. He actually cares about his patients and makes sure they are comfortable and follows up even calls you himself. True professional. My wife even went to him for her wrist and thought he was great.
Call Oweida by whatever handle you choose: doc, Sami, whatever... he's a regular guy and not a prima donna. Sami is a pro who is comfortable with his own expertise, pulls no punches, but is willing to go the agressive route if you are. He could make a lot more money if he was was pushy on procedures and meds, but he'd rather let your body heal right and leave the money in your pocket if it is equally or more appropriate for your condition. He has treated me or my family for various things from chronic foot pain, to knee conditions, to a recent rotator cuff surgery, and this doctor knows his way around. I've had far fewer post surgical and pain issues than everyone else had told me to expect and 2.5 months later, I'm back to about 95% mobility and starting to work on strength. Conversely, my much younger and better shape brother was about 5 months till this point with his doctor.Sami also has an incredible professional staff that are more a part of his team rather than just staff. Sami seems to do continuous training with them so they have a better understanding of what he does and to offer better communication with patients about their conditions.
