About Dr. Sam

Hi there.  I’m Dr. Sam and this is my blog.

I’m a U.S. physician, but have been working overseas in one capacity or other for the majority of my medical career.

Currently I’m in Indonesia, where I’ve been since 2014. Previously, I’ve practiced in the U.S. (Mississippi and Washington State), Germany, Tonga, Samoa, and China.
In a previous life (before medical school), I practiced for 4 years as a veterinarian in Mississippi and Alabama.

If you are wondering why the bouncing around the globe, I will refer you to my wife’s blog Tonga Time, which is an exceedingly wonderful website that I highly recommend.
