First time to meet Dr. Sample as he takes over for retiring Dr. Chandler at CVA. I was very impressed with Dr. Sample's demeanor and "down-home" communication skills. I am very pleased with him as my provider.

In the last year Dr. Sample did the Watchman procedure, placed a stent and clips on my mitral and tricuspid valves. During every procedure he made sure I understood what was happening. He looks you straight in the eyes as he talks to you and makes you feel very secure in his abilities and that he is doing the best for your health
