Meet Dr. Sam

Integrative Physician

Dr. Sam was born in Sheffield England in 1961. His father was one of England’s first industrial physicians, and his mother was a human physical therapist who introduced sports physical therapy into the world of equine sports and dog racing. His formative years were spent on a small holding and eventually small farm where he learnt not only how to enjoy his own company but also the skills of farming. As so many “middle class” English he was sent away to boarding school, for him, as for others, a traumatic experience that shaped his entire life.
