Dr. samuels and the other practitioners at this office set the standard of care in this field. His years of experience and expertise are reflected in the quality of care and level of professionalism a patient is delivered at each visit. Be it hair replacement, general dermatology, or cosmetic procedures one can expect nothing but the best. Ancillary staff is knowedgable, kind, and helpful, ALWAYS going above and beyond. I would and have recommended this practice to friends and family!

I have been seeing Dr. Samuels for over 5 years. He is very thorough and provides good explanations. I have a lot of confidence in him and have sent many people to see him over the years. I recommend Dr Samuels to everyone.

The worst experience ever! Not only was he a rude man... he is not a qualified injector. I went in for Botox on my forehead and ended up with uneven eyebrows, swollen puffy eyes. I looked older after the procedure. I went back into his office so, he could correct the wrong and, found out he didn't even keep a record of how much Botox he used on me. PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A DOCTOR
St Louis, MO |
The worst experience I've ever had. I waited an extra month for my appointment to meet with Dr. Samuels instead of a nurse. I never saw or spoke to him before/ during/ or after my appointment when I had a terrible reaction to a topical I was given. The nurse I did see was extremely rude and had no interest in finding out anything about my skin, what causes my breakouts or what I do/ have done in the past to treat them. She signed me up for Accutane and sent me home with whatever topical she hand

Dr Samuels has a nice demeanor, is thorough, straightforward while conversing and medically exceptional in my experience. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
