The medical profession needs to clone Dr Sam. He's personable, professional and he's very thorough in explaining tests and procedures. Often going to the computer to pull up the actual films of the tests to explain intricacies found during the testing. I never leave his office with unanswered questions. He takes his time and makes you feel like you are welcome to ask questions. He's never rushed although he's extremely busy. Dr Sam is exceptional.

Dr. Sam explains the issue in a concise, clear manner. His skills level is very high. He performed a difficult bronchoscopy and was able to get all of the tumor. He ensured I was sedated and pain managed. I wish the hospital staff would have followed up after the procedure as I did not know why I was reacting like I did. Otherwise I was very impressed with Dr. Sam as a professional.
