Although he enjoyed the opportunity to care for professional, collegiate, and recreational athletes in Southern California, he, his brother (Dr. Mike) and father ("Papa") had a vision to establish a unique, service oriented medical clinic whose success was defined by quality and not by the volume of patients.

In his spare time, Dr. Sam's interests including listening to live music, living "the slow life" with his 4 daughters, and enjoying red wine with his wife.
