Specialties

Dr. David A Samuels has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Wonderful doctor; neglient assistant

Dr. Samuels is brilliant, and I really like him. He has been my physician for 17 yrs. My complaint isn't with him; it's his assistant Shanna. She is neglectful. She ignored my request for records; she left me in the waiting room for three hrs. for a Hoilter Monitor; she didn't tell Dr. Samuels to call me or the attending physician when I ended up in the emergency room. These are only a couple of the major issues. I have shared this info. with Dr. Samuels. Breaks my heart.
