Awful. My obgyn recommended this dr. A nightmare from long office waits, unable to get through on phone to waking up after what was a 20 minute vaginal sling procedure to incredible pain and a hematoma the size of a grapefruit. Unable to urinate an needed to be cathiterized. Dr acted like this was normal. Tried to fix sling in office with surgical instruments Worse than ever after 6 months. This man should never practice medicine again

My 87-year-old father-in-law (on oxygen) went in to Uromedix complaining of inability to pass urine. He was catheterized and sent home. For the next appointment, he waited 4 hours and then was told he couldn't be seen. I complained to Dr. Samowitz about the long wait. He acknowledged that "That's not good," but obviously lacked the business acumen to act on the problem. Six weeks later, he was still waiting for treatment. They changed his foley and the nurse asked how long he'd had it. "Six wee

Dr. Samowitz has been my urologist for over 3 years, and I have always found him to be professional, helpful, and knowledgeable about my condition(s). In addition, he has always looked for multiple solutions to my issues, and has been an excellent and compassionate listener. Although the waiting time is longer than in other offices, I have frequently made an appointment the day before, and the staff has had no trouble fitting me in the next day. I recommend him without reservation!

Dr Samowitz is a very good doctor. However the waiting time is huge. He double books appointments creating the unnecessary waiting time. I sat in the waiting room for over 1 3/4 hours and the total time at the office was 2 1/4 hours. My time is important too!

Dr. Samowitz seemed very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable discussing my issues HOWEVER - his office staff was not helpful with any follow up, rude and some were incompetent and unprofessional. Wait time is crazy long, 1.5 hours on 1st visit. Others in waiting room told me this was typical. Calling in for follow up also was 10 min +/- to speak to a live staff member. I would give Dr Samowitz an A based on my visit but his office staff and F and likely will never return.
