I liked Dr. Sama from the start because he spoke to be as an equal and explained everything I needed to know about having surgery on my spine. He took all the time I needed. He has a wonderful and most efficient staff who take care of all the arrangements, soup to nuts. If you call the office, you get someone on the phone quickly and your issue is dealt with as soon as possible. I am feeling very well and I owe that to Dr. Sama.
Dr. Sama was combative and rude. I had seen him three years ago, and he was fine, so I returned. Obviously, he did not want to operate on me, but why subject me to verbal abuse? Hospital for Special Surgery should be ashamed to allowed one of it's physicians to mistreat patients in this manner. When I declined to take a medication on the advice of two other physicians, that is when he really became unbelievably nasty. So future patients, you can do better!
Dr. Sama and his Staff were wonderful. I had spinal fusion surgery back in Feb. 2012. I would highly reccomend Dr. Sama to anyone. I am back to working and biking which is what I love to do. My surgery was a sucess. I am very grateful.
