Sam Waddell is an amazing doctor, very genuine for his patients. I couldn't ask for a better doctor for my kids. I wish there was more doctor like him.

He was a nice and caring man who listened to what I had to say. I’m new with him so that’s about all I can say. He kept things the same way my prior Dr of 30yrs had it.
