    Dr. Samuel is a very good Dr, takes the time to listen to any concern/symptom you have and does a thorough job of explaining what he thinks is happening and the recommended treatment or treatment options. Unfortunately because he is willing to spend the time with every patient you will likely end up waiting a while to see him, frustrating but in the end I'd say worth it. The front desk person is rude and lazy unfortunately.

    It was horrible. Office ladies are very rude. We arrived 20 minutes before our appointment and we are still waiting and it's 3 hours after our appointment time and the office ladies are being completely nasty because we are upset over the wait time. The ladies were also sitting back behind the glass talking crap about patients. I can not believe this place.

    Creates more problems than you actually have. He is narrow minded, and is in constant mind phuck mode to push meds down your throat. Is fixated on things that have nothing to do with your CURRENT SITUATION. If you don't agree with his recommendations, then he tries to reword every question into getting you to agree with what HE THINKS, NOT WHAT YOU THINK OR FEEL. Even though if he asks you a question, and you tell him NO, he doesn't take NO FOR AN ANSWER.

    Dr. Samuel is someone who, after going to him in a panic, I would recommend to anyone with the utmost confidence. He is very knowledgable, skilled in both listening and explaining, and all around is a compassionate individual with a calming demeanor. It's very rare that doctors spend so much time with individual patients, answering all their questions and concerns, but Dr. Samuel had no problem doing so on every visit. The information and peace of mind he gave me was invaluable.
