Dr. Lanalee Sam is an excellent physician, along the lines of the old, traditional ways when we actually had a fine relationship with our doctors. She is extremely knowledgeable, and spends enough time with you until you fully understand her diagnosis and recommendations. She saw me through a borderline uterine cancer issue, with a terrific, positive attitude and state-of-the-art equipment and procedures. I enjoy going to her well appointed, never crowded waiting room, such a lovely change from other doctors offices in South Florida. The young ladies at the front desk could use some more training, and perhaps another person to answer phones, as I had to repeat a simple message for Dr. Sam several time to make them understand it, and also they placed me on hold for over 20 minutes waiting for lab results (which I still do not have). No matter - I'm sure. Dr. Sam will look into this and remedy it. Dr. Sam is also an impressive, creative person, and an outstanding athlete. I approve heartily of her activism and her commitment to our community, including her volunteer work for Women In Distress and fighting human trafficking.
After reading some of her reviews I thought I would give her a shot. Well it wasn't at all like the reviews said. I went there two times. In which both appointments I had to wait almost two months to see her. The front deck is ok in person but on the phone be ready to be on hold for over 15 mins. To make a long story shot, she didn't pass on to me any confidence on her diagnoses made on my issues , made it seem as if what I was feeling or saying didn't matter, wasn't willing to examine me to really determine what was going on. I called another doctor the next day and had some tests done, turns out something was wrong and for all I know Dr. Sam would still think I'm crazy.
