He broke 2 of my teeth during surgery. Tried to blame me, fragile teeth. My dentist documentation that this was a complete lie. Asked him why he was lying. No response. His resident found the next problem area not him.Better ENT director at UofC. He will never a great doctor. I saw Dr. Peltzer for years at NW. A fabulous doctor and human being. Sadly he retired . Dr. S.S. Is no Dr. Peltzer.

Excellent surgeon and I was very lucky to have found him. He saved my life during 12 hour surgery to remove cancer. If you are seeing Dr. S. Samant, consider yourself fortunate you found him. You are at the right place

Dr. Samant ruined my elderly mom’s mouth. His procedure damaged her teeth and cost her pain and thousands of dollars in dental reconstruction. Hospital lawyered up and is pretending that my mom ate a nut which caused the damage. They are nuts. I do not trust Dr. Samant.

This man is one of the best in the game hands down. I was unsure, had doubts and untrusting of him performing the surgery on me because I was afraid. I ended up waiting a whole year and my health declined. I ended up coming back to Dr. adamant. He performed the surgery and I was leaving the hospital in a few days with no complications or setbacks. He is considered to be the international go to guy when it comes oncology. 7 years now since then and I am happy and well. Thanks Dr. Samant!
