Q&A with Dr. Samsami

What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?

Professionally, I am passionate about educating patients about their health and helping them achieve optimal wellness through natural strategies. Personally, all of the above as well as protecting our Earth and saving animals from endangerment and extinction.

What three traits define you?

Caring, motivated, and easy going.

What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?

I love learning new things. I would continue to read, study, and research about Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition even if I wasn’t paid to do it.

What are you surprisingly good at?

Art – I love contemporary expression.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

Music. Music is so therapeutic, you can find something for every mood and occasion, and I love discovering music from different cultures.  

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

The gym! The best feeling is achieving new goals & personal records.

What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?

When a patient walks out of the appointment more educated about their health than when they walked in, or when they say “wow I haven’t felt this well in a long time”.

What’s your biggest accomplishment?

Graduating with my Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine.

Share something unique that most people don’t know about you.

I grew up in New Zealand for 10 years. I’m a Kiwi!
