Sam supports her skills as an acupuncturist and herbalist with a strong understanding of Western medicine. I saw her work well with numerous patients during our clinical residency. She is results oriented and cares deeply for each individual she treats. I have her special connection with those who have served in the military and with those from all other walks of life.

Bill Walter, AP I highly recommend Samantha both as an exceptional Acupuncture Intern and as a great friend. I have known her for years, and greatly appreciate the calm cool and collected personality, great attitude, and her sincere down to earth manner. I couldn't say enough about Samantha!

Patient Reference Letter from WWII Veteran Captain Bill Scruggs Jr., U.S. Army Air Corps, RET. "Sam, Many many thanks for all you did to help me with my [pain] problem. If you ever need a reference, I'm ready to give a good one!!! I have not called back for an appointment & don't think I will need to. My pain level is & has been none to very low. I can live & function with that... Great 4th of July celebration shows from Washington & Boston. When in "Grad School" in Boston, I was part of the celebration & have been back for another. Wishing you the best!!!
Patient Marlow Kroegel, US Navy (Ret.) "Sam is undoubtedly the most caring person when it comes to listening to a person's medical situation and discomfort level. I have had pain, numbness, tingling, burning sensation in my right leg starting just below my buttock and going down into the heel and ball of my foot for over ten years. This sensation increased after 2010 making it almost impossible for me to sit for longer than 15 minutes. I had visited several medical doctors, neurologists, pain management, chiropractors, and massage therapists without finding relief. With Sam's acupuncture procedures, my [discomfort] situation has decreased significantly. I look forward to being completely without the pain, numb, tingling and burning sensation."
Patient Marc Walker "Only with four customized treatments and my bothersome allergies have disappeared. One year later, the allergies have not returned."
Patient Aaron Workman & his wife Karina "Karina still has not had inflammation outbreaks after 8 months because she takes the Juvamed from the Protandim (www.Lifevantage.com) website and the organic vitamins [Standard Process Vitamins] recommended from the hair test [Analytical Research Labs, Hair Tissue Analysis], with the Protandim supplement. Also, I'm feeling good with a better attitude because of the Protandim and Standard Process recommended supplements as a result of the hair test. Also, we take the [SP] Daily Packs, and those are a must for sure. Sam, everyone should have the hair test to start, period!!! I believe it's the key element here. We are grateful we started this program with you! Thank you so much!"
Patients Anneli & Pelle " Sam`s acupuncture became a lifestyle to us...She has done something miracle to our bodies and mind also! No need for any other doctors ever! :) Anneli & Pelle"
