Have seen Dr. Samuels a few times. She is lovely, but symptoms haven't changed. The office staff keeps pawning me off on the nurse practitioner. The one time I saw her, I waited nearly 2 hours (between waiting room and exam room), and the appointment was literally 5 minutes. Absolutely pointless waste of time, just wanted my co-pay? The nutritionist there is very good, though. I now have to go somewhere else to get answers. Very disappointed.

My son was a bit nervous going to a new doctor but Dr. Samuels was so kind and caring and made him feel at ease in the office. Her interaction with him was excellent! She took her time explaining things to us and even made a call while we were there to get additional info on his lab results. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Seems that whether your child is a new patient or an established patient they will not be able to schedule an appointment 4 at least 1 month. Even if you describe that your child is sick, vomiting, having painful episodes of diarrhea w/blood it just doesn't matter. You can call until your fingers fall off, speak to Gallo in the front office or either of the 2 RNs & you still won't have a chance of having your sick child seen. Don't waste your time or allow your child to suffer there.
