When I got to the exam room the first thing the nurse told me is that they would not be able to address the entire MRI image sent so I had to pick one area of pain to address. This was never explained to me before this point and how do you PICK which one source of pain to deal with. They hadn't even gotten the right MRI, which I called and had available for them. By the end of the exam the Dr had basically said my MRI was fine (though there were multiple areas of concern) and radiologists just have to 'put stuff in a report' and oh by the way you're fat, call your doctor.
I don't think I have ever met a Dr. With more sincere compassion that Dr. Samuelson! He took care if my father who had a seizure at another Dr. Office. Dr. Samuelson just happened to be there. Got my father to the hospital and cared for him himself. It was a difficult diagnosis but Dr. Samuelson stayed at the hospital and took care of our father. He found that he had a ruptured aneurysm. Met with our family . Explained things so well that we all understood! Dr. Samuelson clipped our fathers aneurysm and continued to stay at the hospital and worry with us. He constantly kept us up to date and explained that since I ( Kari Oborn) and my father James has had an aneurysm that the rest if my siblings should be checked out. He never acted like we were a burden when we asked questions . He made us feel like our father was his only patient. We appreciate you Dr. Samuelson ! God has truly blessed you with the gift of a compassionate heart, kind words and the knowledge to help heal. Thank you!
