Dr. Samuel is a wonderful compassionate surgeon who helps you feel at ease in the office, before and after surgery. His explanations are in layman terms so you can understand procedures her would be performing.

I am very pleased and satisfied with Dr. Samuel. I had a carotid endarterectomy procedure and Dr. Samuel and his team were superb. I can't thank them enough for the care and concern they had for my family and me, both before and afterwards.
