About Samantha R. Upton

Philosophy of care

I am passionate about promoting health in part by enabling you to take control of yours. Using an educational and holistic approach to your care, I help you create a plan that fits your lifestyle and meets your goals.

Why I entered medicine

I became interested in health care in high school as a hospital volunteer. My career started in nursing because I was interested in the human body and its disease processes, and desired a high level of patient interaction. After working with various inpatient populations, I decided to advance my education and move to the outpatient field as a nurse practitioner.

Community involvement

I have been involved in nursing education, teaching clinical experiences at several local colleges. I have also participated in a medical mission trip to South Africa. I hope to become further involved in our community to serve the people of the Lehigh Valley.

Personal interests

In my free time I enjoy being with family and friends. I like cooking, baking and exercising – particularly walking and jogging with my dog, Sophie. I enjoy traveling and love to see and learn about new places.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
