I am a medical student and had the pleasure of working with Dr. Sam for a month at AFD. Dr. Sam and his colleagues and staff are absolutely amazing and truly have a passion for what they do. Dr. Sam makes sure that every patient gets the best care possible and aims to treat the whole patient, not just the symptoms. It is clearly evident that Dr. Sam loves what he does and takes pride in doing it right. He takes personal time to stay current with all things medicine as well. Dr. Sam was a pleasure to work with and highly recommended!read more

Dr. Sam is one of the rare PCPs that I respect and trust. I have seen him as my primary care physician for several years. He truly practices what he preaches including living an active lifestyle and incorporating regular fasting into his everyday life. His staff is always professional and courteous including the NPs and other doctors in the AFD clinic. Dr. Sam stays current in his practice and is receptive to new information. I recently stumbled across a couple of books, The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting. Upon a recent visit, I brought the book in and introduced it to Dr. Sam. To my surprise, he went and purchased the book and read it and when we next spoke he fully endorsed the practice of fasting for better health. I was pleased by this because I have always been ashamed of my fasting due to the brow beating you receive when discussing fasting, even from health professionals that should know better. Now I can proudly practice fasting with my Dr’s endorsement. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Sam and the AFD clinics. If you are looking for a new PCP, Dr. Sam and the AFD clinics should definitely be on your short list.read more
