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 Fahey was very patient and very clearly explained the procedure, a needle biopsy of the thyroid. I was very apprehensive but he calmed me down and I barely felt anything. His staff was very nice and his nurse practitioner, Erin, was very thorough and caring. My wife accompanied me for the visit and procedure and we both agreed that not only would we use him if surgery was necessary, but we would recommend him to anyone who needed a surgeon with his skills."
"Excellent time spent. The associates were terrific in following up with test results as well..,,"
