I got all answers for my questions, I like service of this provider.This is the best Rheumatologist in my life.

Dr. Samuel's finally gave me answers. my regular doctors for years pushed it off as thyroid. But through my endocrinologist, I was referred to Dr. Samuels. With my new diagnosis, I finally have answers. And with treatment options and follow ups with Dr Samuel's, i feel like this is a new beginning. Thank you, Dr. Samuels.

I left the rheumatologist office that I was at where Erie residents so highly regard (Cleveland Clinic) to see Dr Samuels. I feel like I am in much better care with him than with them.
