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.

I was having multiple issues and Dr. Samonte took the time to hear them all and address each problem. I am confident in Dr. Samonte's knowledge in medicine and the care he provides to his patients.
Sep 16
I have recommended the Dr and office to others.
Sep 10
RX to my RX took 2 or more days.

not surenot sure it is dictors fault, but had echocardiogram in august. told all was well. ended up in hospital in September with very leaky valve. was complaining about breathing issues, but they were not investigated.

I am very satisfied with the care Dr. Samonte gives to me. He is very professional, yet congenial.
Aug 2
Dr. Samonte did not seem to care very much about my issues, and as he asked me questions he just rattled them off as he stared @ the computer screen. Not very friendly or personable either. Needs work on bedside manner!

1st time with this doctor. he was very nice. would see him again
May 27
I usually see another Dr here but due to his schedule I could not get in to see him. he is always very attentive and you always feel like he cares and is trying to help. this appointment seemed rushed to me. for example, I am down 25 pounds from my last appointment there and this was not mentioned, so therefore he didn't look to see if there were any changes with you in the last year. Sparich would have picked up on that immediately and his nurse would never miss the foot exam either.

Dr. Samonte is an excellent doctor! He listens & talks to you in a way you can understand & really cares about what you talk about.

I went in with 2 issues. he only addressed one and was ready to leave. I had to remind him there was another issue. I lost a considerable amount of weight since last visit and he did not address it until I mentioned it. he obviously did read my chart before coming to see me. this is not the first time this happened with this provider. last time he saw me I had symptoms of gerd. he wanted to prescribed gerd medication but I was already taking gerd Meds. again he had not reviewed my chart. except for Dr Sparich the Hazleton office is not giving Geisinger a good name. And Dr Sparich is very difficult to see.
Apr 14
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.

very good doctor
Feb 29
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.
