Recognized as one of New York City’s leading gastroenterologists, Dr. Sam is the Founder of The Institute of Gastrointestinal Motility Disorders and Integrative Health in New York City, New York. She has a special interest in achalasia, gastroesophageal reflux, functional disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroparesis, anorectal disorders including pelvic floor dyssynergia and fecal incontinence,  colon cancer screening with colonoscopy, and women’s health issues.

Treating patients like family has been her philosophy throughout her career, and the reason she decided to start her own practice. She takes the time to listen to her patients, many of whom have seen multiple gastroenterologists before coming to her.

Before she opened her own practice, Dr. Sam built the Stony Brook University Gastrointestinal Motility Center and acted as the Director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Center at Mount Sinai Hospital, providing a multidisciplinary approach to gastrointestinal motility disorders. She also spent 4 and 1/2 years as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, specializing in motility disorders and general gastroenterology.

Born in Trinidad and raised in the United States, Dr. Sam graduated with her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and with her Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in Community Health from the same educational venue. She then did her internship and residency at Lenox Hill Hospital, and her fellowship in gastroenterology at New York University Medical Center.

Trained to address complex medical conditions, she is board-certified in gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

In good standing with a number of professional organizations, Dr. Sam is an active member of the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Medical Association, the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society, the American Gastroenterological Association, and the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
