Dr. Samuel saved my husband's life when she was on call a number of years ago. Since that time she has taken excellent care of both of us. She is thorough, and very knows her stuff. Dr. Samuel goes the extra mile for her patients, and we are so happy she is our doctor.

This was a first visit with Dr. Samuel. A change in insurance caused me to have to find a new physician. That can be a little nerve-wracking. Dr. Samuel was great! So pleasant and caring. She listened well, didn't dismiss any of my concerns and put a treatment plan into place with a follow up visit to see how I'm doing. The front desk staff was friendly and the nurse and MA were courteous, friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend Dr. Samuel.

I like how Dr. Samuels actually talks to and looks at you while her assistant documents on the computer. I've observed some physicians losing themselves documenting on their computers. (What a sad bedside manner!!!!) Dr. Samuels is a very knowledgeable doctor whom I have been seeing for several years. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Her personally phoning me with report results and advice, is also very impressive.

Dr. Samuel makes sure that all the bases are covered when I see her; she listens, she updates health prevention measures (eye Dr. appts, vaccines, etc.), she is thorough in her exam of my current issues, she explains her choices for treatment and why she believes they are the best choices for me, and reviews my meds and possible interactions or side effects of the new treatments. She has appointments available same day for urgent issues and works with the best Nurse Practitioners I know.

I was very appreciative of the quick response to my need to see Dr. Samuel as I was in great pain from a herniated disc. Her diagnosis and solution of the issue was very beneficial to getting relief. The X-ray technician was very sensitive and gentle as she help me through the process of taking the X-ray. Everyone was caring in their response to my situation.
