What Our Patients Are Saying

"Dr. Samstein- is simply amazing. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. The transplant went according to plan and I am stronger everyday. Dr. Samstein checked in on me everyday I was in Cornell Hospital, answering questions and letting me know how my liver and blood results were. He has a wonderful bed side manner, making you feel very at ease, due to you being so informed about what would happen. I would highly recommend Dr. Samstein to anyone who requires a liver specialist"

"Dr. Abramowitz took her time to get my full history and to understand my health issues. She was very candid with me on her recommendations and explained her reasoning and thought process behind her decisions. I have had very bad luckwith gastroenterologists but she restored my faith in doctors and I truly feel confident under her care. She even came to visit me while I was in the hospital. with gastroenterologists but she restored my faith in doctors and I truly feel confident under her care.
