I had gone to FOUR different doctors before finding Dr. Samona. I had a broken wrist bone and none of the other doctors could help me. Even another hand doctor said it took someone with more skill than him to fix my problem. Dr. Samona diagnosed me quickly and explained the entire plan in such fantastic detail. I finally felt like a doctor actually cared about me. He got me fixed up when nobody else could. This is the guy to see for your hand and wrist problems!

Dr. Samona saved my hand. I saw 3 other doctors before him that told me they couldn’t do anything. Dr. Samona explained all of my options and helped me pick the best one for me. I feel great now and I will always be grateful for him.

This is one top notch doctor. Went over every detail and made sure I knew what was going on. Got me back to fishing and I haven't been able to in months because of how bad my thumbs were hurting.
