I have an issue with the EKG my internist did. I called and got an appointment with Dr. Samaan very quickly as I need to be cleared for TKR scheduled for 2/10/2020. she was amazing, understanding the time crunch I was in and was able to get me scheduled for an echo cardio gram the next day. The level or care and compassion I received was excellent! Dr. Samaan really went over and above to be able to clear me for surgery. I am very grateful.

The one area of improvement would be for Dr. Samaan to involve me more in the plan of care - what tests will be ordered for each visit and the rationale for ordering them, and a more detailed explanation of my condition without me having to ask. While I think she's an excellent doctor, I would appreciate better communication. I'm a health professional myself and patient teaching has always been a primary concern. Actually, it would be helpful for all medical and ancillary personnel to share weights, vital signs, etc. as they're taken. Being left in the dark makes me feel like I'm being treated like a child.
