Patient Comments (2)
Cohoes, NY |
I'm usually given an appointment with a nurse instead of Dr. Samuels. But she/he is very knowledgable and gives appropriate advise, and follow appointments to access progress.
in Albany, NY |
On 7/8/16, Dr. Samuels performed my first colonoscopy at St. Peter's Endoscopy and Surgery Center. I was very nervous, but thanks to the friendly and hospitable staff who did everything to make me comfortable, I started feeling at ease very quickly. The RN's explained every step in detail and a few minutes before surgery met Dr. Samuels. Before I knew, it was over and Dr. Samuels came to see me in recovery and went over the results. I would highly recommend him!
