I began seeing Dr. Sama several years ago while in Palm Gardens Rehab for a shattered right femur and kneecap. I was so impressed with her that I made her my PCP. I am still seeing Dr. Sama some 4-5 years later. She is kind, intelligent, and a great diagnostician. She was able to get my medication regiment to an effective balance so I could live a healthier, more productive lifestyle. My quality of life has improved significantly because of her care and I would recommend her to anyone!

Dr Sama was the best Dr I've ever had She literally saved my life I moved a 100 mile away so I can't see her When discussing my health with her I felt like I was talking to my sister I love Dr Sama

I'd NEVER recommend this office and feel right about it. Please keep searching this is NOT your only option and your health is far more important. I took my parent to only 2 appts. The 2nd visit they hadn't gotten records back because they sent the request to the wrong office and then try to make you feel as though it's your fault. We sat in the lobby and his insurance was charged for a visit. Getting an authorization is a joke and you are told you should stay on top of that. I could go on!

I'd NEVER EVER recommend this office! I can't say this enough this is not your last option keep searching. Your health is more important! They can't get authorizations on time and then tell the patient they should have stayed on top of it. If it hadn't been for myself staying on top of things this would have happened more than once. Then you are made to believe it's your fault they sent for records to the wrong office. Lastly being charged for sitting in lobby after they didn't get records.

NO one answers phone or returns messages left. If you do get someone to answer, consider yourself lucky!

Wrong diagnoses. Wrong medication on two separate visits (And I've only been there 3x. I try to avoid having to see her). She lacks so much knowledge, I don't know how she's in business. The worst I've ever seen. Her assistant took my BP wrong. Staff never answers calls, or sends referrals. She's no longer my PCP.
in Winter Haven, FL |
Rude and unprofessional staff.dr sama gets overwhelmed and dont know what she is doing nor what she is talking about she actually yhrew a pen ag me after saying OMG THE INSURANCE IS NOT GONNA COVER ANYTHING staff is dumb
in Winter Haven, FL |
spends more than the required time with me, discusses my treatment options fully with me, discusses treatment options I have found and how various medications would interact with other prescriptions I am currently taking, she always double checks drug interactions BEFORE prescribing me anything, caring, has rough days like every other human does but doesn't take it out on her patients, staff is always very friendly and helpful, nice clean office, nice clean waiting rooms, bathroom, exam rooms.
