He was very professional and let me know all of my options and together we came up with a plan of action. Although he is a surgeon he was not recommending surgery, which in my book is the sign of a good Doctor!

Dr. Samson is a true professional in his field of specialty. After hours of research on specialists dealing with sports injuries, I chose Dr. Samson on his reputation. I trust this doctor with my daughter's knee injury and I must sayhe did a detailed examination before jumping to any conclusions or immediately opting for surgery like other doctors. Dr. Samson is honest, professional and truly relates to his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone.
