There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

My areas of concern were not addressed at all during my visit with Dr. Samonte. He did not give any explanation regarding my concerns or how to handle them. I was in and out of the office within 15 minutes.

Great Doctor! Recommended already to my friends!
Dec 16, 2015
The doctor took the time to listen to my concerns and questions and that meant so much to me.

Doctor Samonte is a replacement for my previous doctor, Francis Kane, who no longer practices medicine. I really miss Doctor Kane and I am very sorry for his medical condition, but I like Doctor Samonte too.

Appointment was at noon. Felt like I was last appointment and he was out the door.
Sep 3, 2015
After listening to my concerns, Dr. Samonte came up with a plan to try to find out what was causing my discomfort. Scheduled the necessary tests to help me.
Sep 1, 2015
I was very pleased with his interest and concern as well as his medical advice.
Aug 20, 2015
Dr Samonte didnt make me feel rushed. He listened to my concerns and took time to address them without making me feel like he was in a hurry to get to the next patient. He took time to look at my medications and address why i was on them as well. For a first visit I found this to be amazing as most doctors i have seen in the past only cared what i was taking not why. I am very pleased to be a patient of Dr Samonte.

Good experience.

no medication was involved
Aug 4, 2015
This is the first "iffy" experience I've ever had with a doctor. Nothing was explained about what he thought my problem was. He seemed rather rushed to get me out of the office.

I HAVE NOT BEEN DR. SAMONTE'S PATIENT FOR MORE THAN 3 OR 4 VISITS, TOO SOON TO RECOMMEND HIM. HE DOES NOT ADD UP TO MY PREVIOUS PHYSICIAN, DR. JUSTOFIN, WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE - MY DOCTOR UNDER GEISINGER HEALTH PLAN PHYSICIAN - FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS. ALTHOUGH, I MAKE ALL MY JUDGEMENT/ACCEPTANCE OF DR. SAMONTE FROM HIS BEING A RECOMMENDED, RECOGNIZED GEISINGER MEMBER AT HAZLETON GEISINGER CLINIC, AND WANT TO GIVE HIM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT - GIVE HIM A CHANCE IN MY CASE.
Jul 30, 2015
He seemed pre occupied and as though my presence was a bother to him.
Jul 27, 2015
Great doctor, understands problems cares for your needs
Jul 23, 2015
I had to ask the DR to review my blood work with me. I thought this would be done automatically. While there were no issues with the blood work, I felt it was a significant part of my physical exam to review the results.
Jul 9, 2015
I had a boil on my leg doctor looked at it for 5 seconds. And detrmined meds and what it was. Not sure how you know what it is in 5 seconds.
Jul 7, 2015

I am made to feel by Dr. S. AND his team that they really care about me not just as a patient but as a person.
June 17, 2015
DR SAMONTE WAS NOT THERE HAD TO SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR WAITED FOR OVER AN HOUR JUST TO BE CALLED BACK, AND LADY AT WINDOW VERY RUDE!!
June 8, 2015
Always good, caring service by all people at Geisinger. I think I have been with Geisinger for over 30 years, always the best.
June 2, 2015
I believe that Geisinger is the best health provider in the region.
May 28, 2015
Dr. Samonte took his time with me, he listened to all that I had to say and asked further questions about what was going on. sometimes other doctors want me to "diagnose" myself and they will just take a wait and see approach. Not Dr. Samonte. I felt he was very concerned about my health issue.
May 26, 2015
I went to my PCP for sutures and an xray due to an injury, only to find out that the clinic did not perform these services. So i did not receive any care that day. I proceeded to the ED at the local hospital
May 23, 2015
never received a phone call to set up a appointment with a sleep doctor
May 18, 2015
I like Dr. Samonte. He is good, concerned and genuine.
May 15, 2015
Dr. Samonte went out of his way to spent time and discussed all my questions wonderful doctor.

#5. N/A meds were not prescribed.
March 24, 2015
They haven't given me information about my {illegible or inappropriate content} that I have or don't have.
March 24, 2015
second time I saw the Dr. but he had an assistant both times, I had to talk to them, not him. he had them explain what was going on, he didn't talk, sat with his back to me. I can't hear, so I didn't hear anything Dr. told me, he wasn't facing me, all I heard was quiet. I'm deaf, if I don't see the persons mouth, I can't know what's being said. I wasted another appointment , that's 3 in a row now, and the problem I had, I still have it. didn't say come back for a follow up, but even if he did, I didn't hear him. they need to understand, when someone is deaf, they need to talk directly to the face, not the computer, so today as I write this, I am clueless to my problem, which I still have. thank you
March 9, 2015
a good choice of doctors
March 5, 2015
Dr. Samonte explained my blood work results - I take cholesterol medication - my LDL level much better this time.
March 2, 2015
Nursing staff was very good, physician was very impersonal. Visit was for follow-up from a visit to ER. Physician asked very few questions about ER visit, appointment was a waste of time.
Feb 24, 2015
PCP very business like and appears unconcerned/disinterested. Not at all engaging. Spent minimal ant of time.
Feb 23, 2015
While I miss Dr. Jacobs, Dr. Samonte is a great replacement!
Feb 23, 2015
