Absolutely amazing physician. She takes her time with every single visit and makes sure you never leave her office with questions and she always encourages me to call or message her medical assistant if I think of anything. Clinical staff at this office is very friendly and caring. I was with this office throughout my pregnancy after leaving another practice and I could not be happier with the switch. Only possible downfall is the wait time is a little long because she takes her time with every1

I never felt comfortable with an OBGYN until I met Dr Sample. She is incredibly kind and patient. You will laugh through your entire visit. My entire family sees her now and we all love her.

She is friendly but always late and has made a mistake on my birth control Rx twice. I ended up having to pay for the mistake because neither the insurance company OR the office is willing to take responsibility. They also billed me in full for a visit over one year ago. They had never sent me a bill for an entire year until my next annual visit. Terrible and extremely frustrating since the insurance wont pay. If she's a good doctor I wouldn't know it cuz her office staff/assistants are awful.
