Dr. Samuelson saw me during the holidays when few doctors were available. He was able to pinpoint the root of my pulmonogical issues, and because of his advice and prescription I was completely better soon thereafter.

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 washere 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.

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!

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 thanthat, 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 newpatient. 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.
