First off the positive reviews here have obviously written by the doctors staff. They all sound the same in one way or another talking about Dr.
Samadi being knowledgeable. This is the most unprofessional staff that I have ever dealt with. The clerk and office manager called and within 3 days they called back threatening to send payment to collections if we did not pay up front. We too got a phone call requesting payment up front for our surgery or it would be cancelled so our hands were tied and had no choice. The patient wound up in the emergency room the day after surgery not even 24 hrs post procedure due to complications and excessive bleeding. When we called Dr. Samadi all we got was his P.A. where we were told we were "overreacting" and that they needed to take care of this issue at the emergency room because she did not want to be called and bothered over the weekend. We have notified the BBB and also other establishments about the situation. We know many people in the medical field and they have had nothing but negative comments to say about this man and his office. Steer away from this doctor.

This is the first time I have ever felt it necessary to write a comment about a doctor. However, my recent experience, with both Dr. Samadi's office staff, as well as Dr. Samadi himself was extremely bad. I was treated by his office staff in such a rude manner, that I could not believe this was a professional establishment! My son needed surgery for removal of his tonsils and adnoids. I was called the day before the scheduled surgery, and was informed that I had to pay upfront because the surgery was happening in his surgical facility, rather than the hospital. I was told that if I didn't pay up front, the surgery would be cancelled. The staff was so rude, that it was shocking! I was told that the surgery was to be at 1:30 the following day, and my son was not taken in till after 4. The Dr. was cold and insensitive to my concerns for my son. I would absolutely never recommend this Dr to anyone!

the office does not see patient at the appointed time. Almost every visit, I had to wait an hour beyond my appointment to be seen. They do not help patient with insurance claims. I had to pay first and do all the work to claim insurance. The office do not return emails.

Don't confuse what you "think" is arrogance with knowledgeable and confident. Dr Daniel Samadi is a compassionate and understanding doctor who is also very professional. He is TOPS my children are very comfortable with him and he proformed surgery on my daughter with skilled caring hands. He is very thorough in his explaination and will explain numerous times if need be. I would not hesitate recommending Dr Samadi to anyone and would use him again and again if need be. Thank you to a TOP doctor and his staff for treating us like his only patient !

Fantastic, knowledgeable, thorough and careful doctor. I came to Dr. Samadi for a second opinion and was so happy I did. He took his time explaining and discussing options, offered his professional and personal (I asked) opinion, and was supportive of the decisions I made. My son had a tongue tie and I debated on whether to get it snipped right away, or wait. Dr. Samadi was very caring after the procedure and even called us later that evening at home just to check on my son. I would recommend him to anyone. The offices and waiting room were also very clean and kid friendly.

I don't understand the negative comments, yes, he is very serious but he's the most knowledgable doctor you can think of, he does all the testing right there in one appointment and he doesn't choose surgery as the first option, he always likes to try treatment first. We've been going to see him for 7 years now and the new office is spacious, waiting time has improved and he can also help with hearing aids. He answers email and after hours phone calls right away, I don't know what else someone could ask for.

Worst Doctors office visit experience ever. The most rude, arrogant, unhelpful staff and Doctor.

While Dr. Samadi may come off initially like a good physician, his rude and uncooperative office staff, as well as Dr. Samadi's apathy and "oh really?, I don't get involved" attitude when it comes to them, is enough to seek out a different doctor altogether. The office staff makes billing a migraine, making an appointment a chore, and forget about reimbursement, that becomes a months-long ordeal that in this case, led to threats of police involvement due to our following up one too many times to get our money back....in short, there's a scam going on there, the office steals your money to the point where even insurance companies are surprised, and makes any retribution an impossible task. Rumor has it that he's no longer affiliated with Hackensack Medical Center due to the way he conducts business. I would seek out another doctor! If you're on the fence, trust me, it's not worth it. They don't take secondary insurance, demand copay up front, and you'll never get your money back.

What do you want in a doctor - a doctor that is an expert but has no social skills OR a doctor that is mediocre with good skills. Dont go to this doctor if you want a warm/caring doctor, your not going to get it. His office is always late, usually we spend 30+ minutes waiting after scheduled appointment.
