Specialties

Dr. Ricardo A Samson has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Lifesavor!

Dr. Samson saved my son's life when another pediatric cardiologist did not want to do further testing on my son when he was 5. Dr. Samson is extremely thorough. He takes the time to listen to us, takes the time to talk to my son and will not perform any unnecessary procedures. He explains the medical terminology in layman's terms and will keep explaining the situation until you fully understand what the problem is. He has excellent memory retention - meaning if you only see him once every two years he will remember the details from the previous visit. He will answer questions right away with a phone call if you leave a message with his staff -or the on-call doctor will call back and if needed that on-call doctor will call Dr. Samson if need be. I have complete faith and trust in Dr. Samson. It is a frightening experience having to deal with any heart problems with your child but Dr. Samson makes you feel secure in knowing that he is looking after the well-being of your child. He does not rush through appointments and will answer every question you have. He treats your child with individualized care and makes you feel like your child is special and unique to him. My only regret - I wish he was my own personal doctor! I wish every doctor would treat his/her patients with the care and understanding that Dr. Samson does with his patients!! I feel comfortable having my child's life in his hands. He is extremely knowledgable, kind, caring and an awesome pediatric cardiologist.
