Very professional yet friendly. I waited around 15-20 mins before she went out and greeted me with a great smile. She listened to all my concerns, and took the time to do a thorough examination. Athough she was quick, I didnot feel rushed and she made sure to answer all my questions even those not related to the condition I was seeing her for. I even got notes with my diagnosis and meds via email right after my appointment. Would highly recommend.

Quick and efficient. I was in within 5 minutes of my appt and out 15 minutes later. I do hate filling out redundant paperwork. It's a pet peeve and there were forms that I didn't need to fill out but I didn't have a choice.

Dr. Samara is a wonderful, wonderful doctor. She recently treated me for a nasty bout of laryngitis, and she saw me right before Thanksgiving for a follow-up. I am a professional classical singer, so the health of my vocal cords affectmy entire livelihood - and Dr. Samara totally gets that. I don't know if she specifically works with vocalists, but I would definitely recommend her to anyone who depends on their voice for their profession. She is patient, she listens to all of your concerns exceedingly well, and she is - of course - an excellent doctor on top of it all. All of her prescribed treatments had me singing healthily again. Three cheers for Dr. Samara!
