Finally got in to see this guy after waiting four weeks. Had been putting up with a burning in my esophagus or so I though. Had ask him to please have a look with the scope because I had been putting up with this for months and anabiotic's done nothing to help. He insisted on me having a breathing test first...so I have that done and passed with flying colors. I asked again to please have a look down there with the scope. No he said, he wanted me to try a couple of inhalers for a month. That didn't do anything for me so back for a follow up. I asked again to please have a look with the scope. After 4 months of of asking to have a look down my windpipe with a scope......he said he doesn't do that and I would need to go see a ENT ( ear noise and throat ) doctor. Four months he wasted my time and milked my insurance and co-pay. In the meantime I suffered a heart attack at Beebee Hospital. It wasn't burning from my esophagus. The burning was my heart crying for help. I did finally get up w

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.
