Portsmouth, OH |
First off, the receptionist, well one of them, was very rude. The nurse that came outback in the waiting room to get me, just singnaled me to come in. She was complaining about her hot flashes and was super rude. He was the same way. I will not be back whatsoever.
Columbus, OH |
It was several years ago when I saw Dr. Samuels. I only saw him a few times because of his awful attitude. I was apprehensive about taking a medication and he told me I must not be too sick or I would take it. Needless to say I didn't go back to him
Russell, KY |
Wonderful doctor has really helped me with my arthritis, he is concerned about your problems greatnurse anSecretary.
Lancaster, KY |
After 3 years of looking for answers for the cause of my illness with no resolve Dr. Samuel diagnosed me, and with proper treatment I am doing so much better. He is so kind, and he even came to the hospital when he didnt have to once to just visit my grandfather (also a patient) to make sure he was okay. He doesn't put up with flighty people who miss their appointments, and he is no nonsense, which apparently some people take as rude. He's far from rude. He will just tell it like it is.

Dr Samuels is a very knowledgeable physician. His staff on the other hand are the poorest excuse for a team I have ever encountered. Their cistomer service skills are poor. They are rude and disrespectful. As many times as I have been to their office, they still do not know me. I would almost bet that if Dr Samuels replaced his nurse and receptionist, his client base would increase.

Absolutely the rudest person ever my daughter had a, Dr appointment and we didn't get out in time for me to go see him it was a hour drive I had 15 minutes to get there i called to make another one and they would not let me not a very good way to get patients said he dismissed me just plain rude.
in Prestonsburg, KY |
I saw Dr. Samuel one time and I will never go back. I was there to find out about shoulder blade pain I was having. He gave me no answers for my pain. I have ankylosing spondylitis and he said that he didn't believe that I did. I see a psychiatrist and take several medications for my mental health issues. He questioned why I was taking the medications that I was taking, like he is a psychiatrist. He was of no help to me at all!
in Sandy Hook, KY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Samuels for past few years and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an excellent Doctor.
Rudest, most inconsiderate doctor I have ever met. Implied that I was there for pain meds, when I was only there because my doctor had referred me after a lab test came back with concerning results. I'm 100% drug free and work every day. I went to him for help. I did not deserve to be talked down to and downright insulted.
