Dr. Samora-Mata is quite frankly the most incredible doctor I’ve ever seen. She took care of me when I was in my mother’s womb and now takes care of me as her patient. She’s so patient and understanding and genuinely cares for her patients and their needs. She is an active listener and helps you in every way she possibly can. If you’re looking for a new obgyn, she’s the best there is out there.

Dr. Samora-Mata has been my doctor for approximately 17 years. She delivered three of my grandchildren and that is how I came to know her. She is the most caring, gentle, kind gynecologist that I have ever known. You know when she walks in the room that you are special to her! Her demeanor is so pleasant. She can relate to women in such a way that she makes you feel completely at ease. She has the ability to gently explain every question you may have no matter how complicated it seems to the patient. I’m so thankful that she is my doctor and I highly recommend her as the top notch gynecologist in Houston!!! 100 stars from me!

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 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.

If I could adopt Dr. Samora into my family, I would. I ADORE her, her entire staff is amazing, and every patient of hers feels the same way. I've never trusted a doctor's opinion more, she always listens and takes your opinion into consideration. Never preaches, never discouraging, and an AMAZING woman that we are truly blessed to have on this planet. I'd follow her anywhere.
