I appreciated Dr. Samman's candor. He was direct with his prognosis but tempered it by providing information, recommendations, and possible treatment options. His staff was welcoming and kind. I felt comfortable the entire duration of my appointment. I'm so glad I found his gynecology practice!

I get that many don't want a male OBGYN but please reconsider. He is great. He doesn't pry or judge but he also isn't cold or clinical. He will often spend extra time with you explaining in a very detailed mannerwhat is wrong with you and what your options are. He is also always happy to chat on the phone with you and get's back to you about lab work in an impressive amount of time.

Dr. Samman was the best! Dr. Samman listened carefully to my concerns and gave me thorough answers. He covered all my questions and explained my options plus the pros and cons to each. He was clinically highly skilled and my Papsmear and IUD removal was quick and low pain. Great experience!

He has a very thick accent which I wasn’t expected but lent to the comfort of his bedside manner. This was my first time seeing a male OB and I was pretty concerned but he was nice and explained things and I would recommend to others.

This is my second visit with Dr. Samman and it went very well. He remembered my concerns from 1 year ago and asked follow-up questions. He asked if I had any concerns and stated from his perspective everything was a-okay. Heis the only the 3rd Gynecologist I've seen in my 48 years and he's very personable and knowledgeable.

Going to the doctor can be stressful but Dr. Samman’s professionalism and attentiveness makes the experience less of a hassle and more of an opportunity to learn more about my health. He is an exceptional physician and I wish I hadhim as a doctor from the time I needed a GYN I think his cultural sensitivity and ease of explaining complex issues would have enabled me to see my female health in a different light. I am just fortunate to have experienced his service.

Dr. Samman was not overtly rude, but when I told him I wanted to replace my birth control implant (it was close to the expiry date and I needed a new one), he gave me a hard time about being agood customer for the drug company. Also, when he was taking out the first implant he didn't numb my arm down the length of the rod, meaning I could feel where the plastic was tearing away from the tissue that had grown around it. When I told him that it was painful, he huffed and just injected more lidocaine in the same place as before. Maybe he just doesn't like implant-users, but I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

He was not very personable and kept talking over me. It was very clear that he liked hearing himself talk. He did not really listen to me. Other than that, it was a pretty standard procedure.

He was very dismissive and blase about what I was saying and spent a lot of time lecturing me about what I should and shouldn't expect re: side effects with certain birth control methods. Also, there was no one else inthe room when he did my exam, which I thought was a little weird. The exam itself was relatively quick, but painful.

I had two appointments to get an IUD put in, consultation and insertion. I'm very happy with Dr. Samman and my experience. As others had mentioned in reviews, he is old school (and admits it) but I was expecting that andhe is very professional. I was concerned about the pain of insertion and he took my concerns seriously, made every effort to make things easier. He ended up giving me shots of novacaine so the insertion was relatively pain free and very quick (<5 mins for me). Once the shots wore off, the cramping was fairly intense but still less than expected and it went away after a few hours. I like Dr. Samman- it's no Planned Parenthood, but he did a great job, he made me comfortable, and getting the appointments was easy. I'd go back for sure!

To start, I arrived to find that there was someone else waiting for an appointment at the same time (8am). As I waited, everyone in the office was beyond lovely and incredibly welcoming. However, the consultation with Dr. Samman himself wasinteresting to put it politely. He was nice and began speaking in a professional manner, but then passed a bit of judgement on the IUD and that it should only be used in women who have already had children, which didn't sit too well with me knowing that many female OB-GYNs have them regardless of age and whether they have children or not. He also during the exam chose of all things to talk about Donald Trump's sex life. Despite being EXTREMELY uncomfortable as I lay on the exam table in the stirrups, I attempted to play it off and change the subject. However, he continued on with that conversation. He also was pretty dismissive of my concerns as to why I came in and how a new birth control method could effect my livelihood (I'm a singer and changing the hormone balance in your body can mess around with your voice, which is the last thing I want to do). After the exam, he mentioned that if I didn't hear from his office with any test results that basically no news is good news, which made me feel like just a number and not a person who came in for care. He then left the room without much of a gracious exit. Aside from that, it is very clear that he knows what he's talking about, and has been practicing since 1975, obviously still enjoying it, otherwise he wouldn't still be working in the field. It's great that he's so experienced and well-versed in women's reproductive health, but his opinions cloud his judgement at times, and in conclusion has pretty awful bedside manner. After this experience I'd rather have the lovely ladies in the front do the exam.

The front office staff were nice and helpful, and the doctor was professional. Dr. Samman thoroughly discussed my birth control options with me and provided advice on a semi-related medical issue. After the consult in his office, he performedthe exam and continued talking about his recommendations for me (likely to keep me distracted and not make the exam awkwardly silent). Overall pleased and will go back for future annual visits.

He is thorough, knowledgeable and possesses such a wonderful bedside manner. He treated me with respect which I found to be encouraging. By explaining the processes of my body it allowed me to have a better understanding of my own healthwhich is such a complete demonstration of the practice of medicine.

What an experienced professional. Not only did I enjoy his bedside manner but also he took the time to explain how each type of birth control works in detail in a casual meeting we had in his office beforehand. He educatedme before I decided which I wanted to do (and I ended up picking something different to best fit my lifestyle) and for that I couldn’t be more thankful. I would definitely go back. He went to school in DC and has had his practice in DC for decades. I had full confidence in his experience. Wait time in the office was around 30 mins, not horrible but not immediate.

Dr. Samman was very professional, kind, and patient in explaining things to me, which made my first visit to his office a great one. He clearly discussed a variety of options that I had, and explained the pros and cons ofeach so I could make an informed choice. He got the exam over with quickly, which was great. I will gladly remain a patient of his going forward.

Dr. Samman has an atrocious bedside manner, an inability to empathize with his patients pain, and showed no interest whatsoever in getting to know me as a patient. His condescension including calling me 'young lady' multiple times during myappointment (I'm 31, and trans, which I explained to his front desk staff). He zoomed through my patient history, and talked over me multiple times during the intake. There was no nurse present during my exam, merely the doctor, which I've never experienced. I got zero warning during IUD removal, and left the office in tears due to humiliation and pain. His front desk staff reacted with confusion and seemed flabbergasted to my asking to be called by my chosen name. (I explained that I don't care what you submit to the insurance, as I understand legal requirements. I merely asked to be called by my chosen name as a patient. I was told "I'll call you whatever you want." after which the front desk person threw her hands up and said "Just let me finish this paperwork.")

Dr. Samman's front office and assisting team were professional and kind, very upfront about pricing and procedure in an open and respectful way. Dr. Samman himself was a good listener, straightforward in diagnosis and treatment, and willingto explain the reasons behind the diagnosis and how to make the most of my preventive care outside the office.
