What does it mean to be “board-certified”?
Dr. Saam is a board-certified physician in family medicine and geriatrics. This is an important acknowledgement that she possesses the knowledge and expertise to provide quality care. Board-certified indicates that a doctor is more than just licensed by the state to practice medicine—they have completed the requirements to be specifically acknowledged. Some of these extra requirements include board examination and continued education.

How often should I make an appointment?
The frequency of your appointment depends on your current health. Some patients need to be seen every few months, such as those with diabetes. For otherwise healthy patients, a physical once a year is sufficient. Dr. Saam will tell you how often you need to be seen to manage your health.
