Dr. Sams replaced both of my dad's hips and he is finally able to enjoy life and run around and play with his grandkids! Dr. Sams has also treated my mom for some orthopedic issues. Our family is safe in knowing that any orthopedic concerns are in good hands!

Review for Dr. Sams

His job isn’t to counsel me; it is to make sure I am on the most effective medication and treatment for mental/emotional health. That, he does effectively and professionally. I’ve never had to wait longer than 15-20 minutes and do not feel rushed when my husband and I are with him.
