Took no history or asked any questions. Was extremely rushed and I felt like he was annoyed by having to see me. Abruptly left and it was only from his assistant that I discovered he wasn't coming back.

Dr. Samuelson was very cordial and I was seen right away, but I did feel a bit rushed through my physical. I didn't notice until after I left the appointment that I actually never had my blood pressure checked. Other than that, I would definitely recommend him and the practice in general to others.

Saw him for a general annual check up. To sum it up, he is Very professional in a good way. So is the staff n nurses. I was seen as soon as I filled out the usual forms for a new patient. His personal manner, informative advice, and questions he asked and answered quickly developed my opinion that he is the right choice for my primary care physician.

I had a life-long issue that had been previously diagnosed, but the diagnosis had left me with no medical resolution for a recurring and lingering cough. Dr. Samuelson recognized the issue right away and prescribed medicine to kill the cough (that had regularly persisted for months) in a matter of a few days. If only I had found Dr Samuelson years ago!

I was specifically seeking a PCP with a specialty in pulmonology as I needed someone who could quell my concerns and answer my questions regarding my adult onset asthma during. It was a difficult time in my life. Dr Samuelson was here to help. He was kind and attentive but he also shot me straight. He told me what I needed to hear - and not necessarily what I wanted to hear. As my body took time to heal, and my asthma is finally stabilized, through it all - and to this day - I feel the utmost comfort that Dr Samuelson is best-in-class in his field and was on my team to help me get there (to a place of health) in just the right way. Couldn't recommend him more.

Dr Samuelson and his staff were professional and efficient. I went in 15 minutes early, filled out some paperwork (the rest was done online ahead of time), and went into the exam room after a 5 minute wait. I was treated kindly and information was presented well. The office called a week before to rescheduled my appointment from morning to afternoon without an explanation besides "it is no longer available". However, I was able to work around it and it did not affect me. They require a credit card on file for appointment cancellations.

I was very satisfied with the appointment however the front desk is a hot mess they have a booking system that is double with the zocdoc system my initial appointment got cancelled as they send a confirmation mail that requires answer within 24h not only did they send it to a non existant e-mail address, my apointment was cancelled despite zoc doc confirmation mails on top of that the front desk assistant was arrogant, blaming me for not having responded in time to her mail that she sent to a wrong address!

Robert and his staff were nice. I get the feeling that doctors see so many people every day that they get accustomed to it and forget to realize going to the doctor can be a uncomfortable experience for many. I would have liked to feel a bit more comfortable when asked certain questions.
