About Shirlene J. Samuel, DO

  • In her free time, Dr. Samuele njoys jogging on a treadmill, spending time with her family (especially her two nieces), and watching basketball and soccer. She also enjoys reading and listening to music, and hopes to be part of medical missions. Being new to the Central Texas community, Dr. Samuel is looking forward to exploring the area!

I have always enjoyed science and medicine, and have always wanted to work with children. They are so resilient and have taught me so much, so Pediatrics is the perfect career for me! I enjoy educating parents and children about their health. Preventive medicine is so important, and is the center of my approach to practice.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

    I wish the front desk staff would take time to listen. I was trying to share a misunderstanding that happened regarding the registration of my insurance but I kept getting interrupted and the staff didn't listen. Had she listened, she would have seen that I was there to resolve the issue instead of telling me things that I was already aware of. It made the encounter much longer and annoying than it needed to be.

    The front desk went over and beyond to get me a same day appointment and see a pediatrician, as my appointment was for the drive thru.

    Our doctor was great! She engaged with my son directly and really took in what his experience with his medication has been. We will absolutely continue to schedule with her!
