As a founding partner of HWCA, Dr. Samuels has been an advocate for woman's health for over 25 years. In her clinical practice she strives for a balanced approach, weighing the individual needs and concerns of the patient with the science of evidence based medicine taking into account her vast experience in woman's health. "Health care should never be one size fits all. As a physician, it is my responsibility to find solutions that are acceptable to the individual patient, while maintaining a standard that is expected of my profession."
Dr. Samuels' practice incorporates the continuum of woman's health from a teenager's first pelvic exam, through birth control solutions, and finally to the confusing choices of menopause. "A young woman's first appointment with a gynecologist can form permanent impressions." It is important to me to ensure that they are positive impressions. After 25 years of obstetrics, Dr. Samuels has recently decided to limit her expertise to gynecology. Although she enjoys taking care of a variety of gynecologic issues, she has developed a special interest in menopause. From the confusion regarding the many choices of hormone replacement to the basic decision of "should I or shouldn't I", this can be a very overwhelming time in a woman's life. Dr. Samuels helps guide the patient to a solution that is tailored to their individual needs.
On a personal note, Dr. Samuels is a native Houstonian graduating from Memorial High School. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin graduating Phi Beta Kappa. She completed her post-graduate studies at University of Texas Medical School in Houston and St. Joseph Hospital. She has been in private practice as a board certified OB/GYN since 1990. Dr. Samuels is married to Robert McNamara who is employed in the oil and gas field. Recreationally, she and Robert enjoy hiking and visiting the national parks. They also actively participate in the culture of Houston. Their first date 20 years ago was to the Houston Symphony Pops, which they still support today. Perhaps her favorite past-time is college football. Dr. Samuels is an avid Texas Longhorn. Unfortunately, her husband, Robert, is an equally enthusiastic OU Sooner.
Dr. Samuels sees patients at the Main Office and Sugar Land.
