    I would give more than 5 stars if I could. I have been without a provider for many years and wanted to make sure I found the right one. Needless to say, Dr. Sam is the one! Dr. Sam is professional, passionate, and knowledgeable which are must have qualities for a provider. He made it a priority to ease my nerves while making me feel like I had always been one of his patients. Best regards.

    Dr. Sam is an amazing physician. He accepted me as an intern and I have learned so much form him during my rotation. He is very dedicated and extremely caring towards his patients. He spends extra time with each patient and is a really good listener. It was wonderful experience working with him and seeing him being so passionate about his work. Each patient is his top priority and he never misses a single detail, making them feel like a part of AFD family.

    Dr Sam takes the time to know his patients. He is through and supports prevention in his practice by scheduling annual visits and follow up when needed.

    Dr. Sam is truly amazing. He is caring, takes his time with patients during visits, and will do anything he can to get people well. He is always available through the online portal and usually answers questions/requests on the same day. My health has improved dramatically since I started seeing him about 3 years ago. If you are looking for a PCP it would be hard to do better than Dr. Sam.

    If you are looking for a new primary care physician for you and your family, look no further! Dr. Sam is the family physician I aspire to be like. I’ve interned with Dr. Sam at all 3 locations and have seen how he genuinely cares for his patients. He spends time with each patient to truly get to know them. As an advocate of physical, mental, and emotional wellness, he promotes healthy living including intermittent fasting. Dr. Sam is very passionate about the field of family medicine and his practice, consistently working long hours to provide the best possible care for his patients. The perks about AFD clinics is the fact that they are open 7 days a week, which makes it very convenient for patients. They also have their own in-house pharmacy and phlebotomists. Patients can also communicate and schedule appointments online through the patient portal. His optimism and friendly staff provide a warm, and welcoming environment for his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Sam and his clinics for all your healthcare needs!

    Dr. Sam is an a wonderful physician. He is always so friendly and outgoing toward his patients, while still showing genuine concern for their health and wellbeing. I appreciate how he incorporates wellness teaching into the office visits. I enjoy using Healow and how easy the app is to use, providing a means of direct communication between patient and physician. Dr. Sam and the staff are quick in responding to questions and concerns, and the convenience of viewing your own labs makes it so nice. The staff and nurses are also so welcoming and friendly, and you can tell they care for their patients! I highly recommend seeing Dr. Sam or any of the AFD staff for all of your healthcare needs!

    Dr. Sam is a caring and wonderful doctor! I was struggling with pretty bad allergies with congestion around my nose and hives that spread all over my arms. Anything that I took from over the counter just made me sleepy and didn’t help in improving my symptoms. My family members, who were also patients of Dr. Sam, recommended that I go see him. So I made an appointment and went to go see him. The staff were extremely helpful and assisted me with all the details. They answered all my questions with a lot of patience. One of the main reasons that I appreciate AFD clinics and Dr.Sam is their ability to make patients feel warm, welcoming and comfortable. When I explained all the health issues I was struggling with, Dr.Sam immediately suggested that I get a shot to help me feel better and then ordered for labs. He also got a environmental and food allergy panel done so I would know any allergies I am struggling with. I started feeling better few minutes after the shot. Dr. Sam is also very keen on patient education and wellness; he talked about the foods and plant based products that could help me. He also mentioned about certain dietary and lifestyle changes to help me cope up with the symptoms. I went to other doctors as well but no one would provide such information on wellness and good dietary habits that could help me with everyday life. His insight to patient education and their well being is key to establishing continuity of care. I feel much better than I was previously and really looking forward to my follow appointment. I appreciate all the care that was provided to me by Dr.Sam and his staff! It was a great experience.

    I am a second year Undergrad student at Emory University and I interned under Dr. Samudrala this summer. Dr. Sam is a very forward thinker, intelligent, and very caring. I learned a lot from Dr. Sam and AFD clinics in general. As an intern, I can see how he truly cares for not only the patients that are currently in the clinic but also for patients that are under his care outside the clinic. He works long hours and does a lot of research to provide the best care possible for all his patients. It was a great experience to see how he truly leads AFD clinics by example.

    I am finishing my clinical rotation as a FNP student here at AFD for the summer. I have had the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Sam and the staff at the Brentwood, TN location. This summer, I have been exposed to a variety of medical, psychological, and some surgical needs of patients while being here. Overall, I have witnessed how Dr. Sam cares about meeting the needs of everyone who walks through the doors at AFD. He has an invested interest in ensuring they leave the clinic with a wealth of knowledge to better care for themselves and thus; lower one's risk for disease. Patients have been able to reduce their cholesterol levels and significantly lower their A1C by following diet regimens suggested by Dr. Sam. That is so encouraging to see! In addition, AFD is open seven days a week and takes most insurances! So patients are able to come in whenever it is most convenient regardless of who their insurance provider may be. Not many clinics have that kind of availability! Dr. Sam deserves five stars because of his love for all people, kind spirit, listening ear, helpful analogies, desire to make a positive change in the world, and for the variety of AFD locations and open hours!

    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!

    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.

    I have had the privilege of getting to know Dr. Sam through our business dealings. I have found him to be a man of high integrity, with an eagerness to help others. I own a local small business in Nashville and Dr. Sam has generously offered me his time and advice in a selfless attempt to help me grow professionally and personally. In my experience, the best doctors have the heart of a teacher and a genuine desire to help others. Dr. Sam fits the bill and I highly recommend him as a family practice doctor, business mentor & friend.
