Client Testimonials

“Dr. Sams and his staff are very professional. They made it easy to schedule both the initial and follow-up visits. His price quote was all inclusive and covered the x-rays (before and after), visits, TPLO surgery and medication. The unique compression bandage he applied allowed our dog to go up and down stairs on day one. It was easy to assist her because of the fashionable red vest that she wore 24/7 (also part of the price). The vest had a handle in the middle of her back that made it easy for us to guide her without risk of injury to us or her. 14 months later or dog is as good as new. She runs like the wind, jumps like she used to and enjoys life. I am grateful that we found doctor Sams and recommend him unconditionally.”

“There is not much I can say that hasn’t already been said. The Sams Clinic is top notch – 5 star all the way – in customer service, patient care and facilities. The highlights to me are: *thorough explanation of procedures, possible complications, outcomes *timely follow-up, before, during and post-op *rehab consultation post-op *honest/up-front estimations of costs Each staff member has been kind & caring with me throughout the process and has been gentle, patient and concerned for Techno, my dog as well.”

“We took our 13 year old Golden Retriever to the Sams Clinic after our vet said they thought she tore her ACL. Since she’s too old for surgery we were interested in pain management options for her, and wanted a specialist’s opinion. After a thorough 1 hour exam we came away with a more detailed diagnosis (her ACL wasn’t the issue), a pain management plan (with progressive options to deploy as needed), and a free loaner harness to help lift her until their new shipment of harnesses came in. Doctor Hawley patiently answered all the questions we had, and he had a great bedside manner with our pup as well. I’d highly recommend this clinic.”

A TPLO to be exact.His first knee was done in October and we knew that the other one would need to be done but he told of to wait.Well it has been 2 weeks since his surgery and he is going GREAT!I can’t stress enough about how wonderful Dr. Sams and all of his staff is here. Thanks for helping Dr. Sams! They are always there to answer your questions.”

“Dr. Sams and his staff are absolutely amazing. My cat fell out a fourth floor window, and broke a rib and his soft palette, and shattered his wrist. Dr. Ina at Arguello Pet Hospital helped triage and get kitty on the mend, but our cat’s wrist was beyond their expertise. I’m so thankful that Dr. Ina recommended Dr. Sams. He’s super knowledgeable, his staff are caring and supportive (and they sure love cats! and dogs! oh my!), and I really couldn’t have asked for anything more. Two surgeries and a year after the incident, my cat is running and playing just like he did pre-surgery. Thanks, Sams Clinic!”
