Verified Patient Reviews
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 of each 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 my appointment (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 willing to explain the reasons behind the diagnosis and how to make the most of my preventive care outside the office.
Dr. Samman is very patient and caring about his patiens. He explained everything to me very carefully and reassured me through the treatment process.
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.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Samman. His practice is clean, his staff were pleasant, and he talked me through everything he thought I needed to know and answered any questions I had.
Very professional, kind, and thorough doctor. Thank you.
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 talking with 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, outcomes or 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.
I appreciated his pre-appointment office consult. He really took the time to discuss options for treatment. Gave reasons why he recommended particular things and gave pros and cons of many options.
Dr. Samman provides a perfect and detailed diagnosis.
Although there was a bit of a wait, I greatly appreciate Dr. Samman taking the time to explain things and answer all of my questions! He's very kind and generous with his time. Would highly recommend.
I truly appreciated that he listened to each of my concerns and explained them in a professional manner. I never once felt talked down to or dismissed. Each concern was addressed with remedies or suggestions and my opinion was regarded. Very much appreciated his clarity and thoroughness.
He's an amazing doctor, went through great lengths to explain my condition and medication - even took to illustrating to help me understand. He's very blunt and straight to the point.
Dr. Samman was great and has consistently been great. His bedside manner is the best I’ve experienced and he seems very caring and direct when dealing with me. I would definitely recommend him.
He was great . Really gentile
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 the appointment and explain why I was in and my medical history. He made a few racist comments.
I was delighted with everyone in his office, and he was warm, thoughtful, caring, thorough and quite knowledgeable. I would recommend him without reservation.
Dr. Samman is a great doctor however his staff is the absolute worst as others have mentioned. Very rude and unprofessional.
Had to wait a little bit as I would in any doctor's office, but it was totally worth it. Dr. Samman is very patient and he took the time to give me his proffesional advice. Bedside manner is great, as I felt comfortable. As a young lady, sometimes it is uncomfortable to see the Ob-Gyn but here I felt taken care of. Will come back.
Dr. Samman was great!! My only complaint is with the front desk. They were not particularly friendly or professional, but it was a small price to pay for a great doctor.
Very nice doctor and worked with me effectively to create a diagnosis
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 does not 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.
The people at the front are not professional. Very loud! Eating and drinking while talking to patient. Asking each other which show they watched while ur standing at the window. The rest of them u can see them on there phone's.. doctor was very nice And comforting.
So knowledgable about the unusual medications I am on and how that could affect birth control choices/future family planning. He was a pleasure to speak with, and his routine exam was so fast-- he's clearly been doing this for a very long time. I felt enormously comfortable with Dr. Samman.
Dr. Samman was amazing. He was detailed & friendly but professional.
Dr. Samman answered all of my questions during the consultation before my exam. His explanations were thorough but not so much so that a lay person couldn't understand. Overall great experience.
He was very informative and attentive to my needs. He took the time out to explain everything to me. His bedside manner is awesome. He is definitely my doctor for life.
Dr. Samman is great, he actually sits with you for a consultation before your exam. Which is something that many Doctors lack. Takes his time, and provides you with answers.
he was really nice , 2 thumbs up !!
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 to be 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 is very professional and helpful. He answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable.
Thia is my third visit with Dr. Samman and i had an overall great experience. Wait time was minimal, bedside manner was great and i would definitely recommend him.
First visit to this office. The office seemed a bit dirty, which made me uneasy, but Dr. Samman was great. Very frank and thorough. I felt confident that he was treating me as an individual and was more attentive to details in my medical history than most doctors I've met.
GREAT visit. Dr. Samman was extremely professional and his bedside manner was better than any GYN I have ever been to. I felt comfortable, and he answered all of my questions. He's gained a new patient! I dont plan on going anywhere else :)
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 must say 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.
It was amazing !! great experience
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 bit fatherly, 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.
Dr. George Samman was very professional and kind when I met him this morning. I would recommend him definitely.
Very knowledgeable, however felt very rushed. Dr. Samman was efficient yet I liked to be walked through the steps of what he is doing and looking for and those steps were left out.
Dr. Samman was great. He and his team made me feel comfortable, the office was fine, and the nurses and staff were polite. Dr. Samman was thorough just as all the reviews said, and he took the time to talk with me about any concerns.
I thought Dr. Samman was incredibly friendly, professional, and charming. His bedside (well, exam-tableside) manners were impeccable, and even when he didn't find any issues with me, he didn't throw up his hands and say it was all done: he referred me to follow-up procedures, took a blood sample, and was eager to talk to me about potential options for how to see whatever my problem could be through. I appreciate that a lot. The only thing that may have put me off a bit at the beginning is that the office seems a smidge run-down. That feeling quickly dissipated when I got to chat with the very friendly office staff.
Doctor Samman was very sweet, patient and listened to everything I had to say. I would definitely recommend him as a doctor. However, I was not impressed by his staff. His receptionist was rude and cold from the moment I walked in. Later when I had to call back after not hearing from the office and having issues she was rude to me on the phone. For that reason I would not recommend seeing him at his DC location and I will never go back.
Dr Samman started from the basics and helped me understand what my options are. He was thorough in answering all my questions. I was a new patient so in total I waited a little over 30 min doing the paperwork. I initially wanted a female gyno but Dr Samman made me feel very comfortable.
He talks about everything objectively which I appreciate. His staff is also very nice. I think that he didn't ask the right questions right away so my entire medical record wasn't discussed immediately which caused confusion but overall good doctor and again, defended all statements with some type of logical/ medical reasoning -which is very good. He also took a lot of time to discuss everything with me which was helpful.
George was very personable, caring, and truly took the time to address my questions and concerns. I am very pleased with my experience and would highly recommend him to anyone I know.
He is really knowledgeable and comfortable to talk to
Dr. Samman is the most thorough doctor I've had in a long time. I was a new patient so he visited with me in his office first to discuss my medical history and he took the time to walk through and explain (even using illustrations) several questions and concerns I had. His exam was thorough and professional and clearly has a lot of knowledge and experience in his field. I will say, I had an 8 AM appointment and given the amount of time he spent with me, I can see how subsequent appointments could have long wait times. As long as you know this in advance and can plan ahead, I highly recommend Dr. Samman.
Extremely helpful receptionist - she called my insurance helpline on the spot to confirm no additional cost would be billed on my end. She's fantastic!
As always, it is a great visit to Dr. Samman. His staff is exceptionally kind and welcoming and I was in and out within 25 minutes! He's kind,
He is a very experience doctor who takes time for his patients. I reccomend him highly.
I had a good experience.
Extremely honest approach
Dr. Samman is very knowledgeable and honest. Only issue was the waiting time. And the front desk lady called other person who's appointment was later than mine that I had to wait extra minutes in addition to 30 minutes later than the appointment time.
I got some push-back on my rationale for my birth control method of choice from Dr. Samman, which I did not appreciate. I am happy to have disagreements over politics or personal decisions with friends, but a doctor should be a doctor and not lecture me when I come in for healthcare on his feelings about young people without insurance, ACA, and the election outcome.
Dr. Samman was very knowledgeable and professional. Great office.
I absolutely Love Him and His Wonderful Staff.
Dr. Samman has no compassion and diplomacy. He delivered news that can potentially change my life as if it were the weather report. I did not appreciate assumption and generalization he makes about people based on their color. I also find that he assumes and says a lot even before examining the patient and finding out the problem. I do not recommend him at all and I am surprised that he has such a high rating on Zocdoc which leads me to think that the rating system might not be completely accurate.
The all office was dirty. Doctor Samman is nice though and experienced.
He is awesome!!!
He was very understanding and clarified some of the things my female gyno could not answer. It was such a great experience. Thank you Dr. Samman
Great provider but that one staff that's always rude and disrespectful accused me the "patient" of being rude on the phone. I was even embarrassed when another staff brought it to my intension. How dare do you argue with a patient in front of your practice? Totally unacceptable. I am trying to get helped, staff even told me that she does not care about my pain so be it. Wow!! I have been discriminated because of my young looking. This is not the first time i experience bad customer service by a particular staff in this practice. I love the Dr and will see him untill my condition gets better. I just do not trust the unprofessional staff with my health information.
The doctor was great but I had to wait over an hour to see him for a 15 minute appointment! There were 3 people ahead of me and I got there when my appointment was scheduled!
He took the time necessary to listen to my problems and I was able yo ask all my questions. He was friendly and professional.
Dr. Samman was very nice, calm, and professional. He answered questions and was comforting. I was nervous about seeing a male Doctor, but Dr. Samman was great. Would highly recommend.
I was not seen until two hours after my scheduled appointment time. Very disappointing and there was no apology for the long wait. Dr. Samman was great, but I can't afford to wait that long for an appointment.
Dr. Samman is fantastic, and I love the office receptionists as well. Everyone seems happy and attentive to the patients and each other, which always makes a big difference to me as a patient. Dr. Samman is not in a rush, gives thoughtful and undivided attention, and is always very informative and reassuring. Highly highly recommended!!
Overall best GYN/OP I've EVER seen. Very knowledgeable, down to earth, I did not feel rushed, he took the time to answer all of my questions and explained things to me in lamens terms, and I will definitely be coming back. The wait time was a little long, but after seeing the amount of time he spent with me as a patient I can't complain. The only thing negative I could say about the experience was that the office was small and could use some updating.
Dr. Is good but staff is very loud about Patients info and always give me an attitude, very unprofessional.
Dr is nice and takes a lot of time with patients. I am very disappointed on how staff treated me. Very unprofessional. Very loud to the point where other patients hurd my information, the waiting time was over an hour. I am never coming back to this office.
Dr. Samman is patient, thorough, understanding and thoughtful. He made sure I knew exactly what would be done and why. He listens and gives great advice, too. Highly recommended!
Great experience. Dr. Samman was very approachable, very kind and addressed all my questions and concerns in a very light-hearted manner. I did not have to wait at all and the nurses were very friendly and helpful.
I really appreciate Dr Samman. He takes his time to explain everthing such a caring DR.
Amazing as always. Dr Samman takes the time to speak with me and answer all of my questions. I made an 8:00am appt and saw him by 8:05!
Dr. Samman is very patient and very friendly. I enjoyed every of my OB visits with him. I highly recommend him. Unfortunately, he does not do delivery anymore.. I have to be transferred to other OB doctor after 20 weeks.
I felt like an important patient, he consulted me in his office and asked me important questions. I am new patient and had been to several other obgyn docs and never, not even with my pregnancies have I had an experience like this. Rare find!
I loved that we did the consultation in his office. He lets you ask as many questions as you want and explains everything. It's nice to not be naked during your consultation while your DR. is fully clothed...like what usually happens. Makes it much easier to ask awkward questions when you don't feel awkward and uncomfortable at all!
He took the time to explain everything, which was great, but I found that he didn't wait to hear my concerns/wishes out before interrupting with his own thoughts.
He didn't want to treat irregular periods unless I want to get pregnant--I'd like to figure out fertility issues before desiring pregnancy.
Great first visit! Provided very helpful information and was very thorough. Answered all of my questions.
This was my first visit, and I must say I am very pleased with my choice. The office staff are very pleasant. Dr. Samman is very easy to talk with and he answered my questions to the fullest of understanding.
Dr Samman was great he explained to me about the procedure I had before coming to see him what my ultrasound and sonogram showed and what he would need to do to fix the problem. I was very comfortable talking with Dr Samman.
He was very attentive and knowledgable and seeked out solutions to any possible concerns. I would highly recommend him.
First time seeing a male OB-GYN, I felt quite comfortable with Dr. George and he was quite informative of my health. Appreciated that he sat me in his office to discuss health.
Thorough and considerate. Highly recommend
He was professional, clear and very carying.
He was very nice! Quick and to the point explained everything!
Very professional and listens to you
He is a very sweet smiling man of experience. He takes his time. Really comforting for a first pregnancy.
I left the office feeling very humiliated. At various points I was tempted to leave the office without completing the exam. He said very judgmental and insulting things and did not listen well. Horrible experience
Great doctor explain everything and a good listener to his patient I feel so at home .
He is the best OBGYN! You dont have to ask questions because he will tell you right away pros and cons , what you need to know, solution. Ive been seeing dr samman since my frist pregnancy 2 years already and my husband and I love him!
He was very rude about the medications that I was on at my age. I have severe depression and he seemed to think it was necessary to point out how young I am to be on antidepressants. He didn't hesitate to speak his mind about how much I am spending on college tuition or any of my medical history for that matter. I was very uncomfortable.
He was amazing !! Extremly knowledgeable and kind. He informed me of so many things I didn't know about the female body. I highly recommend him and I like his staff
Dr. Samman was excellent.
Everyone there was sooooooooo nice and nurturing, I love love love his two assistants they make you feel at home and warm!!!. The doctor himself was of equal he made me feel so comfortable, he is very funny and sweet. I'm so happy to have this office as my primary OB-GYN!
Dr. Samman is so pleasant. This was my first time seeing a male GYN and I was a little nervous. He has a great bedside manner and sets a calming atmosphere. Also, he was very thorough explaining everything as well.
George Samman is a great and caring doctor that makes getting your physical easy peasy.
While it was a long wait (I had a 12:30 appointment and didn't see the doctor until 1:45), Dr. Samman was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Waited two hours for a two second annual... office is not efficient by any means and unapologetic for the wait.
The BEST! He was very attentive, listened to me and explained everything in a way that I could understand.
Very great, small office and everyone was personable and attentive!
I highly recommend Dr. Samman. He seemed very experienced and took the time to explain my options. Was attentive to my concerns and accommodating. The PAP smear was a tad bit uncomfortable compared to my last one (with another OB-GYN), but it isn't anything to complain about. The office was small and a bit outdated, but the location is prime in DC. The wait time, however, was a bit long - and I was in a bit of a hurry.
He was very professional, funny, and nice .
Dr. Samman might be one of the best Drs. that I have ever seen. He sits down with you in his office for a consultation before even doing the exam. That was wonderful! He explained all of his decisions clearly so that I could understand. This was the first male gynocologist I have ever been to and going in I was nervous. His bedside manner was so wonderful that all of my nervousness went away. I highly recommend.
Dr. Samman was wonderful - excellent bedside manner - and easy. I waited about 30 min in his office before meeting him during my first visit, but he gave me the time needed to ask questions, and listened to me.
Dr. Samman was absolutely wonderful. He held a 1:1 consultation reviewing my medical history when I first arrived -- and I didnt even think doctors still did that. He truly took the time to talk to me and care about me individually, and I'm aready recommending him to all of my friends. He's the best!
He was terrific really. Explained very well in a way that showed his strong expertise and deep professional experience with a balanced and honest way. Personable, patient
Very knowledgeable and direct. Felt like I wad in very good hands
