I would never recommend Dr. Sams to anyone. My father who is 91 is now in the hospital - ALONE. My mom can't be with him because of the COVID-19. Mom had been asking Dr. Sams for a couple weeks about my dad's feet, leg and abdomen swelling. He was concerned. He told my mom she was feeding him to well that's why his belly is big. This 91 year old man is skinny and frail. He is now in the hospital being treated - finally. Dr. Sams should have been a better doctor and could tell something was wrong. Dr. Sams you need to change your career. You give the medical profession a bad name.

Good. Dr Sams is succinct & doesn’t take too much time in beating around the bush. He is certainly interesting & bright & I personally enjoyed interaction with him. That’s coming from someone who doesn’t put much stock in doctors! So take that as high accolade.

If you want a doctor to look you in the eye and lie to you. And a staff that promises to return your call within twenty four hours and never calls you back. Then this is a doctor for you.
