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 30 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.

when the Dr. tells me what he is going to do he does not tell me how this is going to effect me or my body. So now I have to make another appointment to find this out.

I have been a patient of the Geisinger Health Care system since the mid 1970's, when I moved to this area. I have always been exceptionally happy with the care. Since my primary doctor retired 2 years ago I am now very disappointed with the current situation. I do not feel comfortable with the doctor, nurses or policies they seem to be practicing. I understand times change and so do procedures but no matter how hard I try to adjust I am not happy with how things are being handled now. The doctor ordered tests without any basis and without telling me what they were for at the same time. He required me to sign a paper about an unrelated medication renewal stating the test had to be taken and paper signed before I would get my prescription renewal.

A resident doctor first met with me and did a very good job. The Dr onyx came in at the end.

i feel the doctor did not show very interested in my good being. i think he could show more concern for the patient
Feb 25
The doctor was very friendly and understanding. Yes I would recommend him.
Feb 8
Not enough face to face & personal time with doctor. Doctor spends TOO MUCH TIME on COMPUTER SCREEN instead of patient. Not enough compassion or care for patient.
Feb 4
I already recommended him to my mother!
Feb 1
Very good.
Jan 27
Provider seemed rushed. Was professional but curt in demeanor. First impressions did not instill confidence.
Jan 19
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.
Jan 7
Great Doctor! Recommended already to my friends!
Jan 5
Is not very personable. Does not seem to want to talk with patient in depth about problem or listen to the patient.
Jan 5
Dr. is good listener.
Dec 16, 2015
The doctor took the time to listen to my concerns and questions and that meant so much to me.
Dec 7, 2015
I have been a patient with Geisinger for many decades and will continue the Staff and Dr Samonti are top notch, very confident of the care I receive.
Nov 27, 2015
No reason not to recommend.

He is an excellent Dr and always has time for you. He listens to your concerns and is very helpful and intelligent
Nov 13, 2015
I always had good experiences during my visits with Dr. Samonte and I have complete confidence in him.
Nov 12, 2015
Dr. Samonte is good but I have not found a doctor that could replace Dr. Todd! She was wonderful!

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 doctor, good advice, good rapport with teenage patient.
Aug 6, 2015
Good experience.
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.
Jul 31, 2015
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.

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

June 25, 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.
