I was referred to Dr. Samples for a 2nd opinion and never returned to my original doctor. Dr. Samples went out of his way to treat me on a Sunday due to an ulcer in my eye that needed prompt attention. He is truly a very caring person and seems to be a real expert in his field. Also, a big lover of black labradors! P.S. I see him in the Denver area.
