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.

This was my first time visiting a gynecologist and Dr. Samman did a really great job explaining everything and making me feel comfortable. I had a blood test done and he personally called me two days later to deliver the results.Due to hormone imbalances I am going to reach out to an endocrinologist but I would recommend Dr.Samman for primary gynecological visits.

Dr. Samman is always great, I recommend him to all of my friends. He takes the time to talk you through and explain everything, fully addressing your concerns without dismissing them. He is nonjudgmental and caring, I feel very comfortable talkingwith him. His office is a little retro but it's clean and gets the job done. The staff is very friendly via phone and in person, and you are brought back very quickly. I would fully trust him with any and all gyn and ob concerns.

As a new patient, 1st visit, this was an excellent visit. I have only had 3 ob-gyn's in my life . I'm glad that I found Dr. Samman on zocdoc. He is very thorough and good at explaining any issues, outcomesor discussing any questions or concerns. I arrived a little late for my appointment and was called back and seen within 10 minutes of my arrival. Dr. Samman's demeanor was very pleasant and gentile. His ability to explain procedures,prognosis,diagnosis in layman's term so that one has full understanding and capacity to make informed decisions is wonderfully refreshing. I think Dr. Samman will be my Gyn doc until he decides to retire.

The Dr came in while I was getting dressed and wouldn't leave the room when I asked him to instead telling me "sh, it's ok" and continuing to talk over me. He barely let me talk at any point during theappointment and explain why I was in and my medical history. He made a few racist comments.

Dr. Samman plays down the severity of a circumstance should there be something a little wrong, and I find that comforting as I tend to be the easily paranoid type of patient. In no way does that mean that he doesnot care about the condition of the patient; he puts medical terms into easy-to-understand lingo and makes sure that we work as a team to follow up on whatever needs to be revisited. It is easy to tell that Dr. Samman has been around for quite some time in this field.

Dr. Samman was nice and easy to talk to, he doesn't shy away from tough questions and provides you with as much information as he has at his disposal. The service from the staff at the check-in window leaves something tobe desired. Upon entering the facility, there was no greeting. The staff continued talking among themselves. When one finally did acknowledge me, they asked "you got an appointment". No, I just wandered down a building hallway to this specific office, signed in, and decided to stand here for while! Another lady walked out into the waiting room and wasn't sure if she was done or if they needed something else from her...like a co-payment. She walked past three personnel without a glance in her direction. She had to ask, after waiting for them to stop talking to each other again, to verify that she had provided them with everything they needed. The Dr. is great, but the staff needs some attention.

Dr. Samman was extremely professional and explained all of the answers to the questions I asked. He was a little rough with the pap and did not use any gel before doing it. This part was pretty painful, and I mustsay this is a first for me to experience pain while having a pap. During the second part of the check up, he did use gel, but I wish he would have done this part first.

He's a bit old school and doesnt use an electronic medical record, but that means he takes his time handwriting notes and asking the questions he knows are important to your care. He repeats himself sometimes and comes across a bitfatherly, but it was one of the most thorough appointments i've ever had and he was the first gyno to take my complaints seriously and try to get to the root of what is going on as opposed to telling me to take some vitamins, eat yogurt, and do yoga. He listens to everything I say and is very quick with pap smears, but doesn't have the gentlest of touches with breast and pelvic exams (something i'm willing to put aside for the quality of the exam he performed). Overall, maybe not great if this is your first time ever seeing a gyno, but he's a pro if you've been around the block and are looking for someone who is thorough and doesn't rush his time with you and takes into consideration your physical and mental health in making decisions for your care.
