January 13, 2017

This is the first time someone has listened to my symptoms and addressed the issues I am concerned with.

January 04, 2017

I have never had a doctor take such an interest in helping to get me better as Dr. Samuelson.

November 04, 2016

Health Care Providers all attentive and compassionate. RX for medication for pain management explained very well. Everyone listened with kind understanding and Dr. Samuelson very kind as usual and gave clear instructions for use. And reassurance given to me that they are there if I have a need for renewal or replacement. My anxieties on how to better manage pain next exacerbation were greatly relieved. Thank you, thank you!

October 31, 2016

Dr. Samuelson always knows which questions ask and is willing to let me ask him questions. I never feel like he's in a rush to get to the next patient. He's funny, very skilled and I feel comfortable talking to him which is rare for me. I never leave his office without knowing something I can be doing to improve my health issue.

October 19, 2016

The communication of this care team is great.

October 03, 2016

Dr. Samuelson and his staff were very professional and caring during my appointment. They put me at ease as we discussed my concerns.

July 27, 2016

I have complete trust in my treatment by Dr Samuelson and Jennalyn. I have always felt they are looking out for me, and promptly respond to any concern I have. Thank you so much for your care. I truly appreciate you both.

July 26, 2016

very good

June 21, 2016

Dr Samuelson is my favorite doctor at the U. I feel very comfortable talking with him. like an old friend

June 14, 2016

As expected the care received at UHC is the best in the Salt Lake Valley.

May 23, 2016

wish I could have him as my primary care physician

April 19, 2016

The entire team is wonderful!

April 03, 2016

Most positive treatment.

March 27, 2016

Dr. S. reviewed everything in my past, health history and asked about current concerns. He was meticulous. He also identified other areas he wanted to check, and scheduled the tests. His bedside manner is wonderful and engaging, and allowed me to lay aside the anxiety I have with Dr's. Dr. S. was also, very friendly and not hurried, at all. I was stunned about how much time he spent with me. His questions were direct, and his evaluations clear. I am guessing that Dr.S. has a long waiting list of patients, who are trying to access his professional help. If they are blessed enough to get him, they will be very happy and satisfied. He will do all he can to care for them. I am absolutely confident in recommending DR. S. to any potential patient.

March 08, 2016

I appreciated that their was expressed concern over the medication ordered and the coverage from my health insurance..

February 09, 2016

Dr Samuelson always does a great job!

January 29, 2016

Care providers were excellent!

January 15, 2016

Even though it was a very busy day at the clinic and I was a late add-on, the doctor still took a lot of time to carefully answer and discuss my questions and concerns.

January 13, 2016

I have been coming in to see Dr. Samuelson for many years. I have complete confidence in the doctor and enjoy the time he spends with me. The Pharmacist, Dave, is very good and explains any questions I have about medications so that I can understand what they are and what they do.

December 17, 2015

Dr. Sameulson and his team are excellent at what they do.

November 09, 2015

I felt very grateful I was able to see Dr. Samuelson. I feel like I have seen one of the best!

November 04, 2015

Thank you for all the brainstorming on how to handle the esophageal spasms:)

October 19, 2015

Dr Samuelson is the best! He and Jena are wonderful I hope they are around for a very long time!

October 18, 2015

I like having the two doctors, it helps with information about condition, and medicine. Dr. Samuelson was very helpful in explaining how to take my medicine. And also combining my pulmonology with the GI clinic.

October 13, 2015

Always the best!

October 12, 2015

Excellent experience with Dr. Samuelson, his team, and the Pulmonary Clinic as usual.

October 05, 2015

Since you do not have an outstanding column I can only check very good responses. I am most appreciative for Dr. Samuelson accepting me as a patient and thorowly enjoyed meeting him and his NP. I came with forebodings as to my situation and left extremely impressed with him and pleased with his diagnosis, concern and care.

October 03, 2015

Space here would not allow all my thoughts on Dr. Samuelson's and Jennalyn's professional efforts on my behalf, but thank you! It is greatly appreciated.

September 27, 2015

I would not feel conforable in recommending anyone. It's just not my thing.

September 07, 2015

I had to come in on a bit of an emergency basis on a really busy day and the doctor and NP were so kind and didn't rush through anything as we discussed my problem and decisions about my treatment. I was feeling really stressed and in pain, and their care was handled perfectly under the circumstances.

September 04, 2015

Dr. Samuelson basically lets the patient decide how much time they need, by not finishing the appointment until pt. is satisfied and has all questions answered. By talking to me about other symptoms, he was able to see a need for me to follow up with my GI doctor. I love talking to him, and learn something new every time I come in, He is easy to talk with.

August 26, 2015

Dr. Samuelson is the Best!

June 10, 2015

I have been with Dr Samuelson for over 7 years and trust is medical judgements.

May 02, 2015

Dr. Samuelson worked me in during a break in his meetings, I was the only one seen in Clinic that day.

April 30, 2015

Dr Samuelson's care and skill have made a life-changing difference in my well-being. He absolutely turned a monthly bout with bronchitis into a rare event by his management of my care.

April 06, 2015

Dr Samuelson was very friendly. he was so upbeat about my health, that when I tried to talk about things that really concerned me, he gave me a quick partial answer and moved on to something else. I kinda felt like I was a student and he was trying to get through a lecture and my questions were irrelevant. he is a very nice man.

March 23, 2015

I would never place myself in the position to recommend any doctor or hospital.

March 16, 2015

In any survey, the bottom line is would I recommend Dr. Samuelson and his clinic to others? A definite yes! He and his staff are the best!

March 15, 2015

did not feel that any follow up instructions or changes were adequately explained or even put through. Saw more of teaching doctor and medical student than care provider.

March 10, 2015

Kind and thoughtful

February 03, 2015

Always a good, helpful experience. I like having several people give me, pharmacist, np, Dr.

December 17, 2014

Dr Samuelson is the best there is! I trust all of his experience, diagnosis and treatment options. I also really appreciate the time he spends with me, his compassion and knowledge.

November 17, 2014

awesome doctor and enjoy seeing him.

October 08, 2014

Dr Sameulson is the best doctor I have ever been too.

October 05, 2014

Teast conducted and medical plan provided changed my life. I have been suffering for 30 years but no more!!!!

September 28, 2014

Overall an excellent experience by everyone involved in my care.

September 06, 2014

Dr. Sameulson is the best doctor I have ever visited

August 20, 2014

Great as always

June 23, 2014

The NP was amazing... very knowledgeable and professional. Pharmacist very good also...

June 08, 2014

The doctor spoke very quickly and had to be reminded to address the allergies I had mentioned a few minutes before.

June 03, 2014

Outstanding staff !

May 29, 2014

Dr sammie never leaves without making sure several times that I am comfortable with what took place during the visit!

April 29, 2014

Dr. Samulsen took more time with me than any physician ever has. He was concerned about my symptoms and came up with a good plan to treat me.

April 28, 2014

The NP spent a good amount of time with me and was very nice. The Doctor only spent 5-7 minutes with me. I do however understand that he is the best and in high demand. Just as a first time patient I wish he would have spoken with the NP so he knew what we had talked about.

April 27, 2014

I love dr sami! Im sorry for him because my stupid body made him feel like he failed me and my family! He did not fail me!

February 02, 2014

I have a already recommended this clinic to several people.

January 26, 2014

Dr Wayne Samuelson is the epitome of what a good dr. should exemplify. His M.A. Carinn Archuleta is very compassionate and kind. David Young Pharmacist has been extremely helpful in teaching me about the use of my respiratory meds.

December 09, 2013

Love Dr. Samuelson & Jennalyn.

October 14, 2013

The visit was productive and informative.

October 07, 2013

I really love Dr. Samuelson but I am also super pleased with the female (whose name I am embarrassed to have forgotten) who has been the PA (?) Intern (?) I've seen the last two times before seeing Dr. Samuelson. I hope she is training to stay on at the clinic with Dr. S.!

August 26, 2013

I like how Dr. Samuelson connects with his patients and seems to genuinely care not only about their illness but how the rest of the patient is affected to. He evens listens to obscure and odd medical facts about asthma :-)

August 13, 2013

Been going to this clinic for over 10 years, this is a great group of people.

August 13, 2013

Dr. Samuelson is an outstanding doctor. He is very skilled and communicated with be pleasantly and effectively. He explained things. He answered my questions thoroughly. I felt "valued" as a patient.

June 18, 2013

Dr. Samuelson is wonderful. I really depend on him.

May 29, 2013

I have already, over the years, recommended this Doctor to several who needed that kind of help. I have never met any other doctor who is willing to spend the time necessary to explain and take care of the entire problem, rather than the quick fix and maybe it will work.

May 27, 2013

Dr. Raman is an excellent doctor.

May 13, 2013

Dr. Samuelson is easy to talk to and he cares about my problems. He changed a Rx, it has made a hugh difference already.

April 22, 2013

I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone! The staff is awesome!

April 16, 2013

Dave Young and Dr Samuelson work as a great team, and I felt my visit was productive and well worth it.

February 11, 2013

Dr. Samuelson is great

January 28, 2013

This is going to get boring because I cannot say enough good things about this clinic. I got phone calls at 6:30 on Friday nights, for heaven's sake! I have never had a provider go out of his/her way in this manner. Jennalyn called me back before i asked for her sometimes.She was at the top of her game. Dr. Samuleson got a prize when he nabbed her for the clinic. they are an awesome team!

November 13, 2012

The entire staff are outstanding & I feel blessed to have them care for me.

October 31, 2012

Dr Samuelson provides me with quality care and attention, and I really appreciate him!

October 16, 2012

Exceptional as always. Bright, articulate, personable, and willing to include in plan of care.

October 09, 2012

Dr. Samuelson is caring and supportive, he has helped me understand my medical problems

October 04, 2012

I can't be any more positive about Dr Samuelson, he is wonderful in every way, so friendly and so concerned about the patient's health

September 26, 2012

Dr. Samuelson is one of the finest physicians by whom I have been treated (which are many).

August 28, 2012

Care providers very up to date on latest treatment options for asthma. I like that!

April 13, 2012

Care provider was interested in me, and conducted a thorough examinatio.

February 22, 2012

I love Dr. Samuelson. He always seems genuinely concerned even though he has a million things on his plate. Appointments move quickly without feeling like I'm being rushed out of the office.

January 20, 2012

Everyone was very good at what they did. I always enjoy coming to this clinic.
