Usama Samaan, MD

"While working in general pediatrics, I felt I was missing the fast pace of residency, so I jumped on the wagon of CHKD's new Urgent Care department and am happy that I made that decision. I am happy to see all kids with different illnesses and injuries and happy to help them heal and thrive."
