Dr. Susan Sam has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Late, Rude, Dismissive

She started the appointment over an hour late and did not even bother to apologize. I had taken off work to come there and ended up having to take more time off to wait for her. She dismissed my concerns about a medication she had put me on and kept making excuses about why I might be having a problem. Then, she also told me that I didn't have an endocrine problem, that she couldn't treat me, and that I should go to another type of doctor. Now I understand why it was so easy to get an appointment with her.
