Patient Comments (2)
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Dr. Samuel is a truly heartfelt doctor. He deeply cares about each patient. He listens intently on what the patient has to say. He gives you his undivided attention. He give you his thoughts on your tests and condition and constructive ways to help. He is a very unique doctor in this world of doctors rushing in and out in 5 minutes. You never have to worry about Dr. Samuel doing what other doctors do for insurance money. He reminds me of my uncle who was still making house calls in the 80s.
