"Working with Sam has been the answer I have been looking for." 

For years I have worked with countless health practitioners because I knew something was simply off in my body. I've gone through countless tests for thyroid, cortisol, heavy metals, even DNA testing only to come up empty handed with no answers. 
I started off taking the DNA Tests which I love the idea of getting to the root of what my body needs. Dr. Sam was meticulous with his follow up session and the knowledge of what was going on in my body. He was the first doctor to help me realize that extra weight is not always about calories and calories out. After years of exercising and eating meticulously I never lost weight but instead felt puffy and even inflamed.
After a short consult with Dr. Sam, he suggested a function test for digestion. The results were exactly as I suspected. He compiled a custom supplement protocol and my body immediately responded positively.  Within days I noticed a shift in bloating, puffiness and less inflammation. I am so grateful that once I finish up the digestion issue I can immediately jump back into my DNA results protocol and feel confident I will be in great health. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Sam and his caring approach to functional medicine.
