It was my first visit to Dr. Samotin and I was thoroughly impressed. His darling receptionist was so sweet. Filling the forms in on line was a great idea. His PA was a little reserved and not too friendly; all business, but nice. His x-ray tech was such a nice guy and super friendly. He had wonderful things to say about working with Dr. Samotin for 18 years. Dr. Samotin was friendly, knowledgeable and straightforward in his diagnosis. He didn't jump into doing surgery but had me try a foot pad for a month and then make my decision. I am making an appointment for my husband to see him next. I am already giving him rave referrals.
