Learn about Dr. Sampson
I pride myself on giving each patient the individual attention that they need in a sometimes stressful setting. Options for treatment and anesthesia are discussed and I take the time to answer questions. I work hard with my staff to make sure that patients are seen as soon as possible and that treatment goes smoothly.
I feel it is important that each patient is fully informed about their condition, treatment options and how their overall health factors into treatment decisions and care. The term doctor means to teach and I view teaching patients as being as important as the actual surgical procedure itself.
