I wish I had followed what most people said and wrote here before we went to Dr Samadi. I know now why my pediatrician NO LONGER recommends him as an ENT specialist to children. His wait times vary each visit, from 10 minutes to an hour. Then he gets annoyed when the kids are not willing to sit nicely when he enters the room. Also his new assistant, not sure if she is seeing her own patients now, but was so aggressive that she made my son cry while she examined his ears. In all my sons visits to varying doctors, this had never happened. I agree with the many other reviews, find another doctor and office personnel to deal with, you will be much happier for it.

Dr. S. DANIEL Samadi's response
We are sorry that you feel this way. Children do often cry during exams with new providers as they have not yet developed a trusting relationship with the healthcare professional. That said, not every patient and provider relationship is a good fit. We wish you and your child the best for the future.

Dr. Samadi is and his staff are Amazing!!! I was told by the schools child study team my 3 year old son would need "special" help beacause he did not talk however also changed my son's pediatrician twice due to multiple ear infections that could never be resolved in 10 months. I was not referred to Dr. Samadi. I was desperate to see a specialist and found him. Dr. Samadi recomended my son get the tubes in his ear and immediately after surgery my son could hear rain drops. amazing! The whole time my son couldnt hear well which was the reason for the speech delay. Its been over a year and a half and my son is in the top of his class and has not had an ear infection since. Since then, I am also a patient of his and has helped relieve my sinus infection and control my allergies... Thank you Dr. Samadi!

To all my NJ friends who have children. I never post anything like this but I'm so angry that I want to get the word out. If your child ever needs an ENT DO NOT use Dr. Samadi in Paramus. The office staff is terrible and they will nickel and dime you for everything. They will also not follow proper protocol post operatively to keep the money your insurance company pays them for the first post op appointment. So when you go to the first post op appointment that THEY schedule, they will charge you and expect a copay bc its out of the post op window. I told them why I'm not paying the $25 and their extremely rude office manager Rachel response was "we will just send you to collections" and they hung up on me! I'm not done with them yet. Calls will be placed to the insurance company for fraudulent activity, BBB, office of professional discipline, and the Hackensack medical board since he has privileges there. And on top of all that Not only that, I had to give them $350 prior to my daughter's surgery and they claimed I never gave it to them! I had to give them credit card statements to prove to them that I gave them the money with the transaction #. Then they were like "ok we found the money" Stay away stay far away. I actually feel guilty as a parent that I took my child to this horrible place and then had to be subjected to abuse by the staff.

please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. there are TONs of good trustworthy ENT all over NJ. unfortunately DR SAMADI is not one of them. his office manager is a manipulator and a liar. I have dealt with her on more than one occasion. she does not speak in a professional manner and dr samadi is an extremely unkosher doctor that really should be jailed!!!

Now this is long, but informative of an experience. Take time to read it, I hope it provides a better light on what to expect! I had been researching for an ENT specialist for a long time and it took me about one year to build the courage to actually go ahead and get surgery. My first visit to Samadi's office was pretty good. I was greeted in good time, waited a bit, and was seen in good time. After understanding that I needed surgery Dr. S., wrote a prescription for a Med. Clearance and blood work, etc., I figured that everything was running smoothly since this is the first time I ever have had surgery. During this visit, Doctor Samadi's explanation of my issue was very superficial, and I already had known what he said due to WebMD... Two days before my surgery I received a phone call. Before I was able to even share a conversation with her, I already knew she was a tough cookie and an unpleasant one too. Nonetheless I proceeded with the phone call, "will you pay or not?" She rudely asked, and I responded if she would be kind enough to identify herself since she is asking for my CC information over the phone. Without excusing herself, she transferred me over to the supervisor in which also, answered in a very nasty and domineering way "yea I'm the supervisor, and my name is Rachel Baum(or something like so). "You said you needed a name and (I think she said) Nicole works under me. You said you needed a name so there you go. Now I'm going to pass you over to "Nicole" again so that you can give your payment." A vivid memory of what the phone call sounded like. These two ladies were pretty terrible and unhelpful. Now I am not saying these people are like, but they definitely carry themselves like so. About two weeks after the surgery, I had to return to the office because I had severe nose-bleeding. I was very close to going to the ER since I had lost a lot of blood, and thought I had to get my nose cauterized to minimize the bleeding... Now once I entered, I hypothesized that the staff are able to write notes in their system since there was an awkward vibe and very present one too. I was already annoyed and frustrated since I was clearly had an uncomfortable and had lost so much blood the night before-in which I should just gone to the ER. Service means everything and paying my ER copayment would've resulted in a better experience. Any-who, When seen, the Physician Assistant entered with an overbearing persona. I already knew I had waisted my time and should had again, JUST gone to the ER. Due to professionalism, respect, and the incorrect setting I decided to not express how rude and useless her conversation was to my boyfriend and I. She clearly said, "If you would have read the paper work, you would've known that your need to spray saline up your nose, almost any chance you can get." Pretty funny that I was reading my clinicals book as she entered the room, right? Now one thing I must say. I clearly was not capable to work or function properly at the time of the surgery and I was with people. Perhaps those people mistakenly, took the paperwork that the office provided. It would've been helpful if this were said to me after waking up from the anesthesia at the procedure site. In which Dr. Samadi's wasn't the person who spoke to my family, but the anesthesiologist. To be honest, Who knows if it was even Dr. Samadi's who operated me since He never spoke to me the day of the procedure. However, back to my update visit with the PA. I shot a direct look at my boyfriend and he knew exactly the self-control it took for me to simmer my response and reaction toward her inadequate and arrogant response. Now, I will say this: If you're not a people-person, DON'T have a people-person job. It's really simple. If you hate your life, get help and get it together. It's sad how miserable the staff is here. I'm truly hoping and praying to God I recover quickly so that I don't have to deal with these people any longer. When one assumes.... Well, you can finish that. I truly hope everyone has a better experience. Now as for I, I will never return to this site.

We took our two month old to Dr. Samadi and had a pretty terrible experience. The front desk staff were all unpleasant and since those are the first people you see we were already not happy. They assured me the wait wouldn't be long. We waited for 20 min in the waiting room and were then brought back to an exam room. We waited 10 minutes for the PA, who was nice enough. She said Samadi would be right in. Thirty minutes later he came in. All that wait for a rude doctor. He was knowledgable enough, but we could not get over how abrupt he was considering he sees primarily children. Also, knowing how kids are you would think he wouldn't schedule appointments every 15 minutes. That would eliminate excessive wait time for patients. Clearly he tries to see as many people as possible to make more money. After we left we got a call from the office saying we missed our appointment. You would think with that many people behind the desk they'd have their act together.

Dr. S. DANIEL Samadi's response
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you had this experience. We try to care for each patient as soon as possible, but sometimes a patient with a prior appointment may require extra time, which can extend the wait. We apologize if you felt the doctor or staff was rude, as most patients report quite the opposite. Again, there may have been an issue with an earlier appointment that contributed to the distraction. Dr. Samadi cares very much for each of his patients, and we hope that you give us a second chance.
