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.

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
