Dr. Shida Saam , DO



Shida Saam D.O.’s mission is to provide personalized, high-quality care on an as-needed or preventative basis. We have created a practice that we believe in and choose for our own family members.

Shida Saam, D.O.  is board certified in Family Practice and Geriatrics. Dr. Saam chose to focus on family practice and preventive medicine because she enjoys helping her patients maintain optimum health through both traditional and alternative medicine. She takes a holistic approach to medicine by incorporating integrative therapies, as appropriate to the patient’s individual need.

“It is important to develop a trusting relationship with patients and encourage them to participate in the treatment and decision making process,” says Dr. Saam. “Forming a partnership with my patients enables us to work together to improve their health and well-being.” Dr. Saam is fluent in English, Spanish and Farsi, and has a private practice located next to the future Hoag Hospital Irvine.

As a mother of two children, she also relates to the importance of children’s well-being. Her practice offers vaccination for children and annual preventive care. She is affiliated with HOAG Hospital, St. Joseph, Western Medical Hospital in Santa Ana, and Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills. Most insurances are accepted such as HMO plans, PPO plans, and Medicare.

"I have been seeing Dr Saam for over a decade. She is kind and caring. Straight to the point and doesn't waste yours or her time. She will make the time to listen if you need her to. The new patient portal is excellent. I can send her a message and she'll respond within hours. No need to leave a message with her office staff (who all are very nice and sweet, btw) and wait for days. I had a change in ..."

"Dr Saam has been my primary care physician for many many years. Shontel has been at her office as long as I have been going there. They are an awesome team and such a pleasure to deal with.
