What People Say About Dr. Joann Samora-Mata, MD

Dr. Joann Samora is one of the best doctors I've ever had. Dr. Samora was there for me before I was pregnant, during my pregnancy, and the birth of my daughter. She really does care about her patients and listens. If you are having an issue, she takes you seriously and makes sure you get the care/monitoring you need. I would recommend Dr. Samora to anyone. The only challenge I have is the wait period at the office. Sometimes I would end up waiting an hour or even more. So, if you choose her, you will have to be patient.

Dr. Samora-Mata is a remarkable professional, caring and in tune to my physical and mental wellbeing. She is proactive in addressing health concerns I have encountered over 15 years as a client. She has a kind, positive personality that sets me (and I’m sure all of her clients) at ease.

Dr. Samora is SIMPLY THE BEST! She is not only a fabulous OB-GYN whereby you know you and your baby are in very good hands, but she is also a person with a heart of GOLD. a walking angel in disguise. Her bedside manners immediately put you at ease, and her staff is excellent. I love Dr. Samora so much and am forever in her debt after three excellent births (first one was natural, second one breech, and third was high risk) and after countless pregnancy and woman's care visits with her, I can never get enough of being around her. Yes, she is fantastic as a doctor, but she is also truly a genuinely outstanding human being. I feel so honored to have her as my doctor and am so proud that she was the first person each of my 3 beautiful babies were greeted by and whom she helped bring into the world. I consider her their honorary Godmother because as far as she's concerned my babies are also her babies forever :)

Dr. Samora-Mata is vary caring and always spends time listens to my questions. She discusses with me about my medical conditions patiently, orders appropriate tests, and calls me about the test results as soon as when they are ready, usually after work. I trust her experience and decisions, and would highly recommend her to my friends.
