Valerie G This review is basically in answer to cecelia W and her nasty review. First off, when you make an appointment with a doctor you should expect a possible wait. The doctor does not work on YOUR time schedule and there are sometimes, emergencies that need taking care of. In your case it was needing to wait for insurance verification. I never have a problem waiting at the doctor??s office because I understand this and am a patient person. I??ll bet you really got upset when they asked you to pay the co-payment. If you had already been to USC then why did you go to Dr. Samaan? It is routine for an OBGYN to do a breast exam, always with a nurse present, especially with a new patient and having a PAP has nothing to do with the breast. Now doesn??t it look suspicious that you are going around getting herpes tests? Your behavior must be questionable if you have to get tested for herpes multiple times. I would, myself, be looking at you incredulously with that dialog. By the way in the beginning stages of Syphilis the symptoms are similar to herpes. Have you had your Wasserman? If you have had this before, and it comes and goes, it could very well be herpes. You say that your subsequent test results were negative so why does this thing keep happening? Have you ever had chicken pox? It??s a herpes disease and one of Gods gifts that could keep on giving for the rest of your life in the form of shingles. I don??t know about the blood test thing. I have been his patient for about 20 years and never had a problem with blood tests, not even with the new nurse he has. Did you know that SLANDER is sueable and I??m sure that Dr. Samaan is going to see his attorney about this evil thing you??ve done. In closing I just want to leave you with one of my favorite sayings, ??Never pass up an opportunity to keep your mouth shut.?

Very Bad Experience I had a very negative experience at this office. I came in with a 1.5 hr lunch break for my appointment and asked if that would be enough time. A lady who overheard me ask told me that she had been there for 45 minutes already waiting. It took them an hour to get me in (to be fair the nurse at the front was clearly new and having trouble dealing with the insurance). I was getting a spot I??d noticed checked out to be safe. I??m a bit of a hypochondriac, and though I??d been into other offices (USC medical center, with great staff) in the past about this same thing I figured I might as well get it checked. I told the doctor that I??d already had a pap/exam and what the reason for my visit was. To my surprise he asked me to take off all my clothes ??including your bra.? When the exam started he did a breast exam on me, which made me really uncomfortable. I had already had a pap/exam and this was entirely unnecessary. I??m a skinny but big-chested girl and I felt like he was taking advantage of me. He proceeded to the actual exam. He couldn??t find the spot I described on his own and asked me to show him. I did and he looked for about ten seconds before announcing that what I had ??Looked like herpes.? He said my lymph nodes were inflamed and I explained I??d had a cold all week. In response to this he gave me a really suspicious look and asked if I??d been diagnosed with herpes before. I said I??d been tested twice and never had it. He looked at me really incredulously again, tilted his head and then got up and left the room abruptly. I was terrified. It was as if he was judging me for something, and I was shocked that he hadn??t asked anything further about my medical history, and that he seemed to be making such a serious and abrupt diagnosis from an ambiguous symptom. I got dressed and went into the hall. I asked the nurse if they were going to test me before assuming I had Herpes. She said she didn??t know. The doctor came out of his office and handed me a prescription. I asked what it was for and he said ??For the Herpes,? (all of this was really crazy because what I had was a tiny red spot that had been inflamed like an infected cyst the day before and was basically already healed). I said, ??aren??t you even going to test me before diagnosing me?? and he said ??That??s what the blood test is for.? I explained that nobody had taken my blood, and he looked over at the nurse in surprise; she evidently had not known she was supposed to take my blood and I hadn??t heard him ask her to do it either ?? he??d left the room so quickly. I told them that I now had only 20 mins to get back to work and that I needed them to take my blood sample quickly. The nurse started freaking out because she had no idea what collection tube to use for the sample. She called a lab on the phone to ask which tube to use and couldn??t seem to understand what they were telling her. The doctor took the phone from her and told her to use the orange and black-stripped tube. He then left the office. I had 5 mins before I had to leave to get back to work on time. The nurse took me into a room and banded my arm. She tried to take my blood but couldn??t find the vein. She tried three more times but couldn??t get the needle in. I looked down and saw blood streaming out of my arm as she swabbed it frantically and I started to feel sick. She said she??d have to try the other arm and tied if off. She put the needle in and again failed. I was on the verge of tears. I said, ??I have to go, I have ten minutes to get back to work, it takes me 15 to get there, and I would frankly rather go to a rapid testing center.? She said, ??Please don??t leave, I really need to do this,? looking really frantic. I told her I was leaving and I??d call them. I went to a rapid testing center as soon as I got home, panicking and sobbing as my roommate drove me. The man who took my blood got the vein on the first try and told me if somebody tries to take your blood twice and fails it is illegal for them to try a third time and you should be given a new nurse. Getting the test was really expensive but I couldn??t wait ?? I was really panicking. Two days later the results came back negative for both Herpes type 1 and 2. This was the worst doctors visit I have ever had. It was extremely unprofessional. For a doctor to show such callous patient-care, to express strong certainty that a patient has a disease before testing, and to make no effort to ask about the progression or history of the symptoms is ludicrous. I strongly caution anyone who is thinking about seeing doctor Samaan. He displayed severe insensitivity, rash thinking, and lack of knowledge of compassionate medical practice.
