Dr. Samaan exhibited an extreme amount of knowledge, courtesy and professionalism in confirming and diagnosing my problem. After a significant number of years doubting my previous cardiologist, it was refreshing to have an experience of thorough examination, complete explanation of the diagnosis and treatment, and attitude of consistent follow-through and care. It was clear that the chart was reviewed with great detail, prior to my visit. My neurologist concurred completely with the course of treatment Dr. Samaan proposed. I would certainly recommend her as well as all the professional assistants that I met during testing and reviews.
