What People Say About Dr. Louis Samuels, MD
Reply
Dr. Samuels performed a quadruple bypass on me back in March of 2011. It is now going on 7 years and nary a problem. The experience was an excellent one from my perspective - excellent performance - sorry to see that he has left Bryn Mawr Hospital and the Mainline Health association.

Dr. Samuels saved my husband 14 years ago with his knowledge and expertise. Not only is he a great and skilled surgeon but his compassion and attention to non medical details are just as great. A warm and caring individual. You cannot find a better or more caring person.
