Sam Phillips MD

“My practice philosopy is to treat my patients with the most up-to-date, evidence based treatments that are proven reliable. I stress a conservative approach, pursuing non-surgical options before proceeding to surgery. I spend a great deal of time with my patients, making sure they have all their questions answered and that they are well informed of their options and treatment plans.”
