In short, the doctor and her staff are impossible to reach over the phone and it takes them nearly a week to fill prescriptions. I contacted the office Monday and didn’t get a response. After several phone calls, emails, and a trip back to the office on Thursday, they finally filled the prescription. Before leaving, I asked to speak to the Dr. Sam, but she refused to see me or return my calls.

Great doctor, very caring with a great bedside manner. Took the time necessary to make me feel comfortable and answered my questions. The office has great informational videos to listen to while you wait.

She burned me with acid she DIDN'T TELL ME she was applying. Spent 30 seconds in a consultation with me as a first patient, told me I probably had a bad bikini wax. Then after the roughest papsmear I've ever had, she said I needed a VD treatment. Without explaination she slappend some ACID on me, didn't realize when she removed her glove she smeared some on my thigh. Told me to "wash up when I'm done" and left the room. I had no idea what just went on. Now I have 3 quarter size scars on my thigh

Dr. Sam is great at what she does. She's extremely sharp and stays current in the latest medical technology. Some on her staff are not that friendly. Seems like some newer, younger people joined who aren't as good as the seasoned staff that I'm used to.

Dr Sam came highly recommended from a girlfriend after I had an awful ob-gyn visit in Miami. I was extremely impressed with her staff, the personal touches throughout the office and how comfortable the entire experience was. Dr. Sam has this amazing ability to connect with her patients. She was knowledgable, direct, and caring! Unfortunately, it was determined that a complete hysterectomy is in order but I know I'm in best of care and not fearful, due to Dr Sam's expertise. Outstanding doctor!!

I have yet to see or speak with Dr. Sam, even though I am her patient. Is the the norm? Also it is almost impossible to reach someone on the phone and when I did get thru, I was placed on hold for and frustratingly long period of time waiting on someone to come back to the phone only to ask me again why I was calling. The office staff responsible for taking phone calls gets NO STARS & will be the reason why I will not be returning as a patient. My review is based on my experience with her staff.
