Dr. Samanta is a Miracle Worker. He is treating me for severe hemifacial spasm that I have suffered with for 13 years. I am now symptom free with beautiful results. I was treated by several other neurologists in the past and not one of them was able to achieve the symptom-free results the Dr Samanta has. I can't recommend him more highly.
