Treated for a over a year and couldn't find out what condition was. Left the practice only to find out I had lung cancer undetected for the full year going to Dr Samaha.

I first met Dr. Samaha 2years ago due to a recommendation from my G.P. who told me that even though I would have to travel over 1 hour he was the best Pulmonologist he knew of. Our first meeting was to discuss my history of COPD and what he could do to help me in the future. Following his advice with medication I now live a normal life once more. He is a truly wonderful and caring doctor. His office staff and I not only love him but respect and admire him.

Not good regarding bedside manner. " if that's all you need me for..." put down other office practices- he should be ashamed. I'd never refer him.

we did not find out the sleep study was done by someone who has is connected to Bay health Milford and Dover. However he has not released results of this study or the fact that he is the one who read it. this dr. puts patients at risk by following a business model rather than his ethical model to care for patients he has evaluated.

Dr. Sasha's staff is friendly and efficient. They always work with me if I have to reschedule an appointment. His office is quiet and clean. There is minimal wait time. Dr. Samaha is a caring and knowledgeable doctor who takes time with his patients and asks questions. He listens to what I have to say. Eventhough I have moved out of the area, I will continue to drive the distance to keep Dr. Samaha as my pulmonary doctor.
