I have been a patient of Dr. Samuel for almost 13 years. I am not a "sickly" person so I only go in maybe once a year or even less. Even at that, Dr. Samuel has always remembered me and is always very attentive and informative. She's very caring and companionate. My grandmother started seeing Dr. Samuel on my recommendation and she too loves her. The wait may be long, but it is worth it. Getting appointments is easy even though she is always busy, she always makes time for patients.
I was admitted to MMC for pancreatitis. Dr Samuel was quick to ensure of getting me effective pain Meds because one they provided was not working. Then later during the week, I was put on liquid diet but to IV fluids too.When questioned nurses, they kept saying the doc will eventually taper it down or have it removed. So,my leg & foot begin to swell! Nurse told me to walk more & then elevate. Samuel ordered to remove IV fluid w/concern as to why nurses hadn't removed. She was kind & helped when
DO NOT SEE PERSON!! my wife went in to the hospital, was admitted, my wife was on 7 meds and getting worse, come to find out my wife was suffering seratonin toxicity, i spoke with samuel and told her my wife was to be taken off all these meds with just 2 for her pain and anxiety levels, literally the next day, she was better and was released from the hospital. i would not recommend this person to my worst enemy
Dr. Samuel is extremely knowledgeable and sweet. She is the most hard-working person I can see on this planet. She is a very busy woman but her patient care is professional and effective. She took care of me in the hospital when I was very sick and helped me through a tough time.
It was the most shameful, unprofessional treatment that came very close to bordering on dangerous to my recovery. She was unknowingly assigned to me while I was recuperating from orthopedic surgery done in El Paso TX at a rehabilitation facility in Las Cruces. Dr Samuel didn't read my post surgery instructions until 3 days after my being admitted to the Good Samaritan rehab facility in Las Cruces. I didn't receive any pain medication until I threatened to contact NM state health dept. BAD DR!
BEWARE! Terrible Dr.! I broke my leg and after having trauma surgery in El Paso I was transferred to Good Samaritan rehab facility in Las Cruces. That's where I saw (1 time in 14 days as inpatient!) Samuel didn't read my post surgery care instructions, saw me @ 11pm. Didn't give me any pain mgmt meds, refused to transport me to my surgeon appt. (twice!) Samuel is the WORST Dr I have seen in my life of 72 yrs!, thank god I survived Samuel. She is NOT informed, very uncaring,rude,dismissive.BAD DR
I am new here and Rio Grande was recommended to my family for health care. I decided to choose Dr.Samuel and it was a horrible decision!!! My appointment was at 2:00PM. I arrived 30 minutes early & waited for my appointment for almost 4 hours. I was told that the doctor is working at the hospital and when she is done she will come here!!!! I canceled the appt and refused for her to see my daughter. Ethics comes before expert and knowledge. You are a doctor dealing with humans not machines.
