My son and my grand kids see this DR. and have doubts about her knowledge. she asks whats going on,if a follow up is needed to another Dr she is ok but myself had questions about my sons blood work andshe blew it off. I later emailed her thru my Geisinger and she just said follow up with his other Dr. When I have been there with my grandkids she didn't find my granddaughters tortacalaus. we asked her if she had it and she was almost a year old. Today my grandaughters were seen by another Dr. and she seen the things that my daughter was concerned about and Dr Samonte would not address. I am concerned she doesn't have enough knowledge and if it isn't brought to her attention then she doesn't address it.

During THIS particular or visit my 2 month old received 4 vaccinations. Dr. Samonte did not tell us what any of them were or describe any thing about them. I was baffled by this. She also seemed very unsure that herweight and length were recorded properly,but seemed to not care very much. She never listened to her heart,flashed & light in her eyes,or did any thing you would expect from a monthly check-up.

Dr. Samonte always addresses both my need for understanding as a parent and the needs of my two sons. She is amazing and an asset to Geisinger. I wouldn't take my children any where else (unless of course Dr. Samonte leaves) :)
