Wonderful doctor. Wonderful person. Very compassionate and caring plus he is up to date on current treatments. Went in for severe leg pain and he was the only Dr. that's assessment was complete enough to discover I had diminished pulses in the leg that was causing me pain that ended up being an arterial clot. Refer him to all my friends and would not go to anyone else.

I've never had a better experience at a specialists office. Was taken right on time. Saw the P.A. briefly then Dr. Sama. He took the time to go over all my films and gave me a complete explanation of what was going on. He then gave me a coarse of action we are going to follow. Thank you Dr. Sama and staff for a great experience.

Everyone says he is a good doctor. Hopefully his medical assistant isn't a representation of him.

The experience I had in seeing Dr. Sama today was outstanding. I got the feeling he was speaking to me as if I was his brother, with real compassion and attention on getting all my concerns answered. I am grateful for his expertise. He provided lots of intelligent insight into what was going on with my knees. I have a clear plan moving forward and he will be my choice should my knees need further attention. If you're on the fence about seeing an orthopedic for something you have going on, I

I've had two hip surgeries with Dr Sama. He explains everything, super kind,and always in a very cheerful mood. he knows what he's doing he has the latest updated Equipment and his staff is wonderful and it all comes with a hug. The longest I ever we waited at his office was 10 minutes to see him usually it's within five minutes.

Dr. Sama is one of the most caring, kind, and knowledgeable doctors I have ever met. I trust his judgment and expertise without any question and highly recommend him.
West Palm Beach, FL |
Can't get in to see him! Saw him on the first visit, when referred by the hospital, never saw him again! Every time I called, they scheduled the PA (who is a lovely guy, but not an orthopedic surgeon!) When I would insist I wanted to see Sama, I was told it would be weeks! So, my most serious injuries went undiagnosed for months and months, as I was bitterly complaining and continued begging for further diagnostics, finally diagnosed by others, not this office!
in West Palm Beach, FL |
Dr Sama is a sensitive and caring surgeon who is honest and easy to talk to. His demeanor is courteous as well as professional. He did an excellent job repairing my fractured elbow and the follow up care has been excellent. His office is efficient and the PA's are great. I am grateful for his care.
in Miami, FL |
In early May of 2015, I dislocated and fractured my ankle in several places during a skydiving accident. I was a few hours from home so I landed at the closest hospital, & boy am I so grateful I did. I needed emergency surgery & had a week and half stay in the hospital. Dr. Sama & his P.A. Joe, were truly amazing from the ER, to my hospital stay & after. Words can't express the level of appreciation for their care. He is very caring & professional. I would recommend him to everyone!
