Dr Sammond is so great at explaining and listening. I appreciate her and glad to have her as my primary care doctor

I like Dr Sammond. She is helpful and explains things well. One think I would recommend- I am a plus sized person and every time I am given a gown it is a medium sized gown. I have to ask for a larger one so I'm not hanging out of the gown. It is not pleasant and not something I look forward to.

Yesterday the clinic is in lock down position, the nurse is kind enough to offer me a granola bar and a bag of popcorn during lunch hour, it is so nice of her. I am low blood pressure, to be able to have food at regular hours is important, I appreciate their kind thoughts.

  Jul 20, 2023
Doctor had a new assistant, and she was very friendly and treated me like an adult. Previously assistant was very unfriendly and snotty and treated me like I was a bother for her. Keep the new assistant.

I have recommend Dr Sammond to a number of friends

  Jul 12, 2023
I am so pleased with the care I have received over many years. I don't very often recommend her to anyone because these friends or family don't follow what any doctor does for them and they do whatever they want and find another doctor. I don't want to waste Dr. Sammond time when they are going to do whatever they want and not what she suggests. I am appalled at how many people who do this. They waste the doctors time, the insurance money, and use the time someone else could be receiving help they need.

  Jul 6, 2023
Dr Sammond and her medical assistant were very friendly, professional and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr Sammond to my family and friends.

  Jun 29, 2023
Dr Sammond has always listened and discussed my needs and concerns. I have private medical insurance and always renew with a carrier that she's with. It's a blessing to have a Dr I completely trust. She spent time to help look at my choice of prescriptions for a better price which saner me over $300 this last visit.

  Jun 27, 2023
I have been to this clinic for many years now and Dr. Sammond has always been my doctor, and it's always a positive experience.

  Apr 17, 2023
Easy, thorough visit.

  Apr 17, 2023
Nurse or PA has zero personality, and the patient seems to be a pain in the butt to her. Her attitude stinks. If she would have casual conversation even it would be better than her dry, stanch not non-sense, holier than though attitude she portrays to the patient. She makes the patient feel uncomfortable.

  Apr 17, 2023
It's comforting to be able to see Dr. Sammond, who has known me for many years, first as my mom's provider, and then as mine.

Dr. Sammond was interested in my misfortune of 2 mini strokes, went over my results of the blood test and recommended that I buy a Diabetic cooking book to eat healthier to prevent Diabetes. I am pre-diabetic. She supported the emergency room Dr. Who told me not to drive for 3 weeks! I feel 100% fine in balance, sight, judgment, and physical abilities and felt that that advice was harsh. I'm taking his advice and letting others drive me.

  Feb 22, 2023

  Jan 26, 2023
Dr. Sammond is attentive and puts a great deal of thought into the care she gives at the time she is working with you. However, all follow up care is entirely up to her patients. I don't think that's entirely on her. It seems the face of modern medicine to no longer seamlessly care for patients.

  Jan 26, 2023
Dr. Sammond is patient and always asks if I have any questions before she end her appointment with me. Very good doctor indeed.

Great annual check-up! Dr Sammond recommended that I try Red Rice Yeast to lower cholesterol at my annual check-up last year. I added Red Rice Yeast to my diet for a full year and today I learned that my cholesterol improved greatly. Dr Sammond reported the findings from the blood test I had yesterday and said to keep up with diet and exercise. This was a terrific non drug therapy that really helped! I am very pleased.

  Dec 1, 2022
Dr. Sammond listened to me and tried to answer as best she could. I fell a lot better after coming in to see her.
