Ratings for Dr. Shannon Samler
Met Dr. Samler for the first time and she was punctual and thorough and answered all my questions. She thoroughly looked at my shoulder which I broke a while back and she gave me great advice and also explained how she was gonna proceed with my care. Highly recommend her.
My brother flew home from japan for a visit may 6 for the first time in9 yrs. May 8 he broke his ankle at a friends house and went to L.G.H. Had x rays to make sure it was a break..had surgery may 10 with metal plate and 8 screws attached to his bones with some overlapping each other. He had his leg in a splint and wrapped and left hospital May 11..on May 13 returned to L.G.H for a boot fitting Dr. Samler requested. I changed my brothers bandages & gauze pads and his cut on the side of his ankle was something from a horror movie with 22 staples and the inside of his ankle had 8 staples. His foot was not straight and he said it looked deformed. my brother flew home May 23 and went to hospital in japan to get staples removed. Dr. 's were horrified at the condition of his ankle and said it was done wrong and to sue. He was admitted right away and 30 minutes later he was in surgery again getting scrap metal taken out and a 6 sided Allen key head removed which is the dark spot we see on the after surgery x rays. My sister in law said his leg is really bad. he is in the hospital for 2 months and will need 1 more surgery to cover the Frankenstien gash on his leg ..skin graft. L.G.H got their $30,000 for their surgery and my brother got another surgery done properly and 2 months in a hospital bed. NICE WORK !!!
In this time of slow medical services above your GP, it is refreshing to find a Specialist who really takes the time to listen. Dr. Samler has done both my shoulders that were a mess from a MVI incident and I am forever grateful for the excellent service that she has provided, not only taking all medical information into account and not treating me as just another patient, but took my personality into account as well. As well she referred me to another Specialist who does replacements and I have already been contacted by their office staff. Thank you will never be enough.

Dr. Sammler provided prompt and thorough care of a very high standard. She listened well to all my questions and took the time to ensure that I was clear on all aspects of my shoulder surgery both before and after the operation. Her surgical work was top notch and now, 8 weeks after the operation I am very happy with the way my shoulder is regaining mobility and strength. I would recommend her service without reservation.
Dr Samler repaired my meniscus in April. I was walking without crutches in a week, walking medium distances in 4 weeks, running 5 k at 3 months. Today I got back on my skis for opening day at Whistler. Pain free and back on skis. Thanks Dr. Samler. I'd recommend Dr. Samler to anyone seeking orthopaedic surgery.
She is a wonderful surgeon, fantastic bedside manors, considerate and thorough. Great follow up post surgery. One week after the surgery in Richmond Iam at my doctors office in Kelowna my doctor is removing the steri sutures and is raving about how perfect the incisions are and how amazing her work is. All he kept saying was amazing her work is so perfect everything is excellent . Made me feel really really good about my recovery no worries. Dr. Samler has my recommendation hands down. This operation was very stressful for me, she made me feel I was her only patient. Kelowna is crying for good surgeons she would be fantastic just like her work.
