I have been a client of Dr. Samaniego and I have been very happy with his service. When I first went to him after my accident, he looked at all my medical conditions and explained how they were related to my accident. He also explained the types of care that I will need going forward so that I can continue to live a normal life.

Mr Samaniego was my doctor during a car accident. I was in shock but he calmed me down, told me not to worry and assured me that everything would work out fine. He explained what happened to me and addressed any additional concerns I had. The service at this hospital is excellent, I am very happy with their care!

I was in a really bad car accident, and needed to see a doctor. I found Dr. Samaniego on google, and I am so glad I did. He really is a great physician. He always makes sure that you are comfortable and relaxed before any procedure or test is done, and he takes the time to explain things in detail. The office staff is also very helpful; they're very friendly and welcoming, which makes going there pleasant even when you might not feel like it! I would definitely recommend Dr. Samaniego and his team!

I personally recommend Dr Samaniego to anyone who is looking for a great doctor. He has treated me the best throughout my entire surgery and recovery process. He is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make sure that he doesn't leave anything unturned or unanswered. He is very friendly, respectful and has great bedside manner. The staff at his office are also very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and always make sure that you are well taken care of as soon as you walk in the door! I can't say enough good things about him or his staff!
As a personal doctor, he was always there for me when I needed him. He is truly an outstanding professional and cares deeply about his patients. I could not have asked for a better doctor to take care of me. Thank you Hector!

Great people!These professionals take quality time to care for their clients.'' I highly recommend them''.
They have some good doctors here... also appointments are fast. They don't take long. We are always out by an hour..They like to take their time to learn everything about you and they hear your problems or whatever. They are awesome... I have a 7yr old and 11 yr old that come see them... They tell you it's not an overnight thing. It takes time to get your kids adjusted to the meds and the right 1... I love it here. He is so nice and funny he speak English and Spanish..Also restrooms and the rooms are always clean.. but I recommend this place for yourself or your kids. They care about you and try their best to help you..
