Dr. Samadder is kind, compassionate and competentUofU Patient March 08, 2013
The doctor determined that the procedure I had been sent to him to receive would not be effective. He discussed that the only other thing to do was a CT scan. This was scheduled, but for five weeks out. I've already struggled with this for five months, so perhaps another several weeks doesn't seem out of line, but I was discouraged to leave without answers or relief offered for another extended period of time.UofU Patient February 01, 2013
Explanations were complete and easy to understandUofU Patient August 13, 2012
the doc was a fun guy...very patient with questions and explanations and we even traded a joke or two. He laughed...how novel and pleasant.UofU Patient April 10, 2012
I thought he was very good. Sometimes it is hard to understand because of an accent, but I just had them explain it again.
