Dr. Sampson has to be one of the most professional yet personable doctors. Having interacted with many doctors in my life, she is stands out for her professionalism, clear, concise explanations, and direct patient dialogue. Took the time needed to answer questions. Needed procedure was schedule in a very reasonable timetable, and she was on-time for procedure. All around one of the best.
