Sam Fuller, Medical Scribe

Hi, I’m Samantha! But you can call me Sam. I was born and raised in Northeast Pennsylvania, and I am the medical scribe at First Choice Family Care. I relocated to Camden in 2018. I attended college in Pennsylvania where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and minored in Art. I know you’re probably thinking, she’s a medical scribe with a design degree? Well with my background in design, I am pretty tech-savvy. My job is to make sure that your visit gets translated over to the computer so we can best take care of you and your health. In the beginning it was a bit of a learning curve, but I am always up to taking on a new challenge and expanding my knowledge. I have always had a drive to help others in any way possible. Taking on this job has made me feel like I am contributing to our community in a positive way. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son, and our fur babies. When I am not chasing a toddler around, I enjoy reading, traveling, crafting, and playing video games.

Let us be your First Choice!

Whether it’s for you, your child, or your grandparent, let us take care of you!

Dr. Jera Smith is so attentive, thorough, and compassionate. She makes you feel heard and has a way of brightening the room with her personality and bed-side manner. Her nurses are amazing and I couldn’t be happier with my experience and being one of the first patients at her gorgeous practice!
