I have never written reviews about anything but I thought I share my experience with Dr. Sammy's office. Firstly , he is a Very thorough doctor! Expect to spend at least an hour of your time for your well check up . He does various testing from full bloodwork , EKG, breathing and metabolism testing. You should always ask for his technician Florance who is very knowledgable , professional and extremely proficient in her work. She is a true pleasure to talk to whenever I needed any prescriptions or questions . His other assistant Kathy however is a nervous wreck who barges in the exam room without knocking. She has walked into my room several times and once when I was completely undressed and having my EKG performed. Very rude and often complaints that she is too busy to return patients calls.Another issue I have is his receptionist. The couple that referred me to his office has switched doctors because of difficulty making appointments . She has a horrible attitude over the phone and often very unpleasant with other patients in the waiting room. You hear the most inappropriate conversations while you are waiting and they are rude and abrupt when you ask how long your wait time is. But honestly if you are looking for a quality doctor who takes his time in making sure your health is top priority , Dr. Sammy is the right doctor for you. Just hope you get to be taken care of by his assistant Florance who will ensure all doctors orders and plan of care are well understood and will wow you with her proficiency and a service with a smile.
I was recommended Dr. Chitayat by a friend of mine who had been his patient for many years. After I saw him I understand why he was recommending him. He is the most thorough doctor I have ever been to. He listened and took his time. I have never encountered a doctor like him - I waited a half hour beyond my actual appointment time; but that is nothing compared to the time I have waited for doctors in the past. I left feeling that he genuinely cared. His Nurse Cathy & Office Manager Gemma were both pleasant and professional. In my 60 years living in this city and dealing with doctors - he is a jewel among men
