      Outstanding doctor with excellent bedside manners and a holistic approach to caring for my aunt. Dr. Samaan cares about his patients and his progressive methodology ensures he is treating the root causes of issues, not just symptoms. He is very easy to reach for questions or concerns, even when on vacation. I high,y recommend him.

      I recently moved here from NJ, and I was concerned about finding a new doctor. I was thrilled to have found Dr. Samaan. He is warm and compassionate and very professional and thorough. He follows up with his patients by phone or email and you feel genuinely cared for. He is both my internist & cardiologist and I feel that I am in very capable hands. He takes time with each patient, and he is an excellent doctor. I feel so lucky to be under his care. His staff is terrific also.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Samaan's Care Philosophy

      I believe that the physician and the patient are a team and that we work together to come up with the best plan for that patient. I believe in preventive health before it worsens and allowing people to enjoy the full joys of life at their full capacity. I encourage not only adherence to medications, but also good sleep, exercise, and nutrition.
