Dr Samuelson did back surgery but didn't do fusion 4 years to day had to have back surgery again!!!! So sad! Dr Samuelson also lied to me & my husband about a hip problem & didn't tell us that pelvis & public bone were broken and there was a Hip Revision Specialist in his office! How can you trust someone who tells 2 lies right to your face??
We appreciate the candid feedback. We are concerned to read such comments as Dr. Samuelson and our staff work diligently to provide comprehensive care and an exceptional patient experience. In light of that, we are unable to identify a patient of record who presented with these concerns. However, we would be more than happy to discuss any concerns at length. In the meantime, we send our best wishes for a swift recovery.
