This was my first time seeing Dr. Samson and I really appreciate that she took the time to listen to my concerns. All of her office staff are very nice and I like being in and out of the office in less than an hour. I also had to change my appt last minute and they were very accommodating of that. Highly reccommend!

Clear and organized communicator. Fancy area of town, waiting room great, examination room and her office are functional and clean, but crowded and unappealing. Office staff were wonderful. Med tech was friendly. I will follow up with her in a week - I liked that she made this plan with me - to see how I'm doing, and if meds are working. She had the office staff schedule the next appointment it right away.

Office staff was friendly when I first arrived. A young lady took my blood pressure and checked my pulse but I found it kind of odd she didn't introduce herself or address her role at the doctors office. She was dressed in normal clothes with a stethoscope around her neck but again didn't make any introductions. The doctor was very straight forward, I wouldn't say she wasn't friendly or unfriendly more business focused. The doctor did take the time to go through my symptoms and history and prescribe what she felt was best to get ride of the issue and "not put a bandaid on it". I will be seeing her again for a follow up next week which I do appreciate.

Extremely long wait time. Didn't give any real clarity on illness, pretty much regurgitated what I was already told. Offered no alternate solutions. OK doc but not for me.

After going to a walk-in medical office and being diagnosed with asthma for a persistent cough, it still wasn't going away. I made an appointment with Dr. Samson and was given some meds that actually did the trick and cured my cough. However, she had me come back multiple times for followup tests and changes of medicines that I thought didn't really require me coming into the office again. However, it was always a quick trip - I never was waiting long. The other thing I didn't like is that I never got an official diagnosis - I'm glad my cough was cured but would like to know what caused it so I can prevent it from happening again.

Very nice doctor, brisk and to the point. However, I felt that the EKG and the follow up visit to receive test results were unnecessary (I paid copay for a 5 minute visit)

Dr. Samson is warm and professional. She is knowledgeable, but made it clear she only wanted pulmonology patients. I booked with her for primary care, as she is self listed as a general internist, in addition to pulmonologist. If she only wants specific patients, she should not advertise as a general internist. I will not be returning after my initial follow up.

I think the doctor was knowledgable but it was hard to tell. Asked a lot of questions from behind her computer and ran a couple of in-house tests. Then, when I thought I finally would be able to ask her some questions, she gave me a couple of tests to do outside of the practice and sent me on my way. Didn't feel heard, supported, or helped. For example, I told her that the inhaler I was using wasn't helping and she just said, "keep using it."

I had an appointment scheduled at 5pm on a Friday and had to wait for an hour to see Dr. Josephine Samson, but it was worth it!!! I had a flu and a nagging cough for three weeks, the flu eventually went away but the cough was severe and for 3 weeks I felt really terrible - I already tried a couple different meds and was still coughing non-stop. After seeing me, Dr. Samson gave me a very strong antibiotic and a steroid for inflammation - I got better in two days and now I can exercise and eat normally. I highly recommend Dr. Samson - she knows her stuff!!

My visit was decent. A 5 on a scale of 1-10. The office is beautiful on the outside and in the waiting room but the office and examination room that I had were far from impressive. Dr. Samson is knowledgeable but not very warm so if you need that kind of thing you may be disappointed.

it is a traditional medical practice and it is a rarity in New York City these days. Office is comfortable and the front desk folks were very friendly. This is how the medicine should be practiced and Dr Samson listens to you and pay very close attention to your needs.

First off, the decor of the office was old and the medical rooms were not new and looked messy. I arrived and gave the front desk my ID and insurance. Then after waiting for 30 minutes, I was taken by a PA to a medical room to be weighed, measured height and blood pressure. Then went back to waiting room for another 30 minutes. Finally met with the doctor in the same medical room and told them I was there for an annual physical. She looked at my body and then told me I needed an EKG. I didn't know what it was but thankfully I read an earlier review similar to mine. The doctor left and the PA administered the EKG test, I asked the PA if the EKG was covered and she said yes. (If I am charged, I'm going to be upset) Then after the EKG, I met with the doctor and she said everything was all fine. I was told to come back for a check up in 2 weeks. I do not feel satisfied with my check and my time felt wasted.

Very quick. You need to ask her to explain why she does certain procedures, but that's not necessarily a negative. Has prescribed me medicine that is abating my symptoms and that otherwise has never been recommendd to me by a primary care physician. I can't complain; my lungs are happier for it.
