Dr. Ghyath A Samman has the following 2 specialties
- Cardiovascular Disease
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.

For the person who said their Dad was in the hospital for 5 days and Dr. Samman didn't take care of him, I have the following response. I work for the very hospital your Dad was in and know for a fact that Dr. Samman took very good care of your Dad. Dr. Samman found out what was wrong with your Dad and brought him to surgery and corrected what was causing your Dad problems. In addition, Dr. Samman came to see your Dad every evening and there were times that it may have been late, however, he still came to check on him. Finally, before you post such horrible things about a doctor, make sure you include the positive things that he did for your Dad..... like saving his life and preventing him from having a massive stroke.
My dad has been in Clear Lake hospital for 5 days. He came in by ambulance and Dr Samman has only been in 2 times. He didnt even look at his chart before coming in. He didnt know what tests had been run or his history. He said 3 days ago he wanted to talk to the family about a possible heart cath. We are there from 7 to 7....he hasnt shown up once even though he is in the hospital. ....He was very unprofessional and I am incredibly unhappy with him. I have called him and left messages and still nothing.
I have been very disappointed that his follow up is non-existent either for office or emergency hospital visits. He's a good guy and probably a good surgeon, but (1) he only has privileges at Clear Lake Regional and (2) he doesn't follow up, or his staff doesn't follow up. Either way, you can have tests and not ear about the results or a diagnosis. If you need surgery or REAL heart care go to St. Luke's or Methodist.
My family doctor referred me to Dr. Samman for a nuclear stress test. My test came back abnormal and Dr. Samman performed a heart cath. He found 2 blocked vessels that needed to be opened. He placed a stent in each vessel. I have never felt better!!! He explained everything to me in detail and put me at ease before, during and after the procedure. He has an excellent bed side manner and his staff are kind and efficient. Linda B.
