What People Say About Dr. Israel Samson, MD
Reply
Our last dr. gave my dad a clean bill of health on his physicals because his PSA levels were within normal range, although they were rising 3 years straight. We later switched to Dr. Samson, who was immediately alarmed by the PSA trend and felt a small lesion, which turned out to be prostate cancer. Again, 2 years ago, dad thought he had the flu, but Dr. Samson immediately diagnosed acute diverticulitis and sent him straight to the hospital. He saved my dad's life twice. I trust Dr. Samson
