      from Diana 5.0 Stars - (2024-02-21)
  • "My visits to see Dr. Samuel at NYCBS are always timely, quick yet thorough. The process for my upcoming iron infusions was explained to me clearly, ensure I fully understood what to expect next. Ive been a patient for 15 years or more and have nothing but good things to say! The complimentary bagels and danish etc offered by the NYCB offices is so appreciated and comforting especially for patients who are sit there for hours getting long IV treatments and Infusions. Around 2009, my care began with Dr. Samuel and his assistant Janet, PA. Both are amazing providers and have gentle bedside manners. I always got great care especially during sick and not so good days. I will remain a patient of NYCBS for infinity as well as their many new and growing sister offices such as New York Health Primary Care office of Dr. Robin DaCosta who has been my doc for 2 years and is very calming and thorough at all my visits. I am completely satisfied and happy with my care and so will you too!"
