My experience with Dr. Samaan started with an incredibly fast and easy appointment on a Saturday! I was expecting to have to wait for days! The nurse and technician were great. He gave me a heart scan and was able to figure out what was wrong right then and gave me prescriptions, natural supplements and a diet regimen. He has kept in touch and followed up with me. Long story short, I'm almost completely healed, after only a couple months. I'm very happy I chose Dr. Samaan!

I've never had a more positive experience with any other physicians office. Dr. Samaan's staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, I've never had to wait longer than 5 minutes or so to be seen, and there I can always schedule an appointment with only a few days notice. Dr. Samaan himself is very attentive, he goes above and beyond the level of care most other physicians provide, he takes his time with me and really seems to listening to what I have to say to get to the root of any ailment

Dr. Samaan is my mother's primary physician, and we feel extremely thankful to know him. He is a very caring, intelligent and professional physician, and just a fabulous, trustworthy and unassuming person overall. He genuinely cares about his patients, listens to their concerns, puts them at ease, asks the right questions, and prescribes the best line of testing and treatment. Thank you for keeping your finger on the pulse in my mom's recent serious health scare. She is finally stable again!

Dr Samaan is not only a thorough professional but also a doctor that takes the time to listen each of my concerns. I was used to doctors rushing me through my visits with little concern in hearing my entire health story. Also he treated my family with respect when they asked him questions about my health. He is a genuine doctor who is very up to date on the latest types of medicines and goes out of his way to make sure treatment and medicines are actually working.

My association with Dr. Saman has been a great one. He has been very attentive to my needs andn he always tells you how it is and not what you always just want to hear. He has always been flexiable with his scheduling and has always been very avaliable. He is very proactive instead of reactive and and one point saved my life. He has even dropped off a prescription to my house when I forgot it. I would highly recommend. and thats saying alot

Dr Samaan is my Dad's current primary doctor and we're NEVER going to change it. He's the only one that listened to my dad's concerns about getting tired easily after walking and because of his attentiveness and the tests he ordered, we found out that my Dad URGENTLY needs an Open Heart Surgery. I strongly believe that my Dad is alive today because of him, I cannot stress enough how Attentive, Professional, and a Patient Advocate Dr Samaan is. I'm a Rehab Therapist and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him.

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.
in Granada Hills, CA |
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.
