More About Dr. Christopher Samaniego

Dr. Christopher Samaniego, DPM, is originally from Freehold, New Jersey. He attended college at Messiah College, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Biology. He earned his podiatric medical degree from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA and completed his surgical residency training at Detroit Medical Center in Detroit, MI.

Dr. Samaniego provides comprehensive foot and ankle care at Advanced Medical Group offices in Jersey City, NJ and West New York, NJ.

Dr. Samaniego is a member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the American Podiatric Medical Association. He keeps up to date on the latest surgical techniques and available technology in foot and ankle care. He has also presented research at the annual meeting of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

Dr. Samaniego resides in Jersey City, NJ and enjoys skiing, cycling, and strength training. He explains, “Healthy doctors inspire healthy patients. I follow the same advice I give my patients, and I read constantly to become a better physician every day. I encourage my patients to ask questions and learn about the cause of their symptoms. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Passion

Dr.Samaniego is originally from Freehold, New Jersey. As an Undergraduate student, his summer study abroad program in Zambia, Africa, in Public health care in the developing world greatly inspired him. It molded his core values on medicine and how he could significantly impact the community.

Presentations

Dr.Samaniego presented a research paper at the annual meeting of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons on using bone marrow aspirates to identify some pathogens through the PCR machine to reduce the rate of identifying organisms in osteomyelitis from over 72 to 96-hour period to less than 48 hour period. He believes in constantly updating himself on the latest developments in his field and is now focussing on minimally invasive surgery in Podiatry.

Patient Relations

Warm and friendly with all his patients, Dr.Samaniego believes in establishing a good relationship with them by giving them ample time. Before discussing treatment options, he understands their history, background, and underlying causes of their problems.

Philosophy

Dr. Samaniego’s philosophy is that “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” This is true, especially in Diabetic foot care. He believes integrating primary health care, Internal medicine, and Podiatry at the Advanced Medical group goes a long way in his patients’ overall health and well-being.

He resides in New Jersey and enjoys cycling, skiing, and strength training in his free time. He also volunteers with the local church community service and youth programs.

Results

Little data exists regarding Clinical Instructors’ (CIs) views about their roles in students’ affiliations. The purpose of this qualitative retrospective study was to examine pediatric school-based CIs’ perspectives and how these views were translated into action. The hypotheses were that, through analysis of interviews, common themes would be identified, that the themes would be influenced by the specific practice setting and that they would parallel APTA documents. Number of Subjects: Eight female CIs in school-based pediatric sites
