I was nervous at first but after taking to the staff before seeing the doctor I had gotten a little comfortable. When I met with the doctor and she showed me my baby on the monitor I was excited, she explained everything to me and my mom as if she knew us. That's how comfortable they made us feel I would recommend Dr Lanalee to my family and friends.

I went multiple times for about a year and I've never been so unsatisfied. I literally would call my mom after every appointment in tears because I felt like the "doctors" had no clue what was going on and gave little to zero information about anything. They rush in, rush out and thats it. If you have pain for over a year and multiple doctors tell you "everything looks great you're okay," RUN. I am now running to get the results I deserve as a 24-year-old woman.

I am a returning patient who was not informed that my insurance was not accepted at the office, even after I got a phone call to confirm my appointment and no one asked me for my insurance information. I arrived at my appointment and the front desk clerk told me that they do not take my insurance and I can still see the doctor but I would have to cover expense on my own. I was very offended and angry because I waited almost a week to see the doctor for an emergency. I will not be returning to this office again.

After reading pretty good reviews, I thought I would try Dr. Sam. I was horribly disappointed. I took the first appointment slot in the morning, which they had apparently triple booked. I waited for about an hour an a half in the waiting room. When I was taken back, the MA who took my blood pressure and weight was FANTASTIC! If she was the doctor, I would go back. When the doctor came in, she took no time to see if I had any questions, or was having an issues. As she was about to walk out, I stopped her and told her that I had some questions. She made me feel so stupid and over paranoid for even asking. Overall, I was quite disappointed with Dr. Sam and the office operations (except for the cheerful and efficient MA!)

Definitely recommend Dr Sam! I had a little bit of a wait for this appointment BUT I was able to get in for it at 9:30am by making booking it online at 8am. So a little wait while patients with longstanding appointments were seen was worth it.

Great office, very friendly, very informative. The only issue I've had is working with other offices that they've referred me to. It's almost impossible to find a place that can perform the follow-up that I need within my insurance network. I wish I'd known that I was going to be an issue before undergoing the procedure!

The waiting and exam rooms are clean, well-kept and smell incredible. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Sam was also pleasant, but I felt like a number. She was never rude, but almost dismissive to concerns I had... like she didn't have time. Luckily, I didn't trust the information she gave me. I went to another doctor, who not only listened, but was able to diagnose my problem & treat it.
