by panic attack victim on Mar 29th, 2011

I was told by Emergency One in Hyde Park that I had inflammation around my heart after EKG was taken. They told me to rush to St. Francis but I chose Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie. I was seen by Dr. Sama. He came in immediately after I waited an hour in waiting room (which wasn't his fault.) and honestly I had hoped for Kessler who had seen me before. I'm so glad I got Dr. Sama. He explained why I did not have the condition that Emergency One said I had. He attributed my condition to anxiety and didn't put me thru tons of unnecessary tests. He spoke to me for a long time about anxiety and let me go home. The most amazing doctor I've seen in years. 5 stars across the board. Thank you Dr. Sama, for being exactly what I needed. -J.D.
