Portsmouth, VA |
Dr. Sample assisted my Dr. McFarlane on my surgery. She had excellent bedside manner and knowledge and my surgery went well. Thank you.
in Norfolk, Virginia |
Shes so nice and reassuring. Made me feel so comfortable.

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.
This is an amazing Doctor!!! I was thoroughly pleased with her knowledge, ease to talk to you and the ability to be firm but kind when necessary! I would highly recommend her services she's my doctor until she decides to retire!
