Sam's personal statement:
"Although I have been lauded for my management and training skills, my primary focus has and always will be on providing the highest level care possible to my patients. It is particularly gratifying for me to hear patients describing my consultations as being clear, compassionate and caring and I have immense satisfaction in seeing my patients recover so well after surgery."
