Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Sampson and his wife, Alison Sampson, D.O., are both practicing obstetrics and gynecology at Marshfield Clinic Marshfield Center. They met in medical school and agreed on Marshfield Clinic because both sought the combination of living in a small community but practicing in a tertiary care center. He is from a small community in Nebraska and she is from rural northwest Wisconsin.

He loves his medical specialty. “Whether it is helping women during their pregnancies or women who are in a different stage of life and need assistance in dealing with bleeding problems, prolapse or incontinence, I have the best job in the world,” he said.

Dr. Sampson earned his medical degree from Des Moines Osteopathic Medical School in Des Moines, Iowa. He completed his residency at University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

He enjoys bicycling, painting, snowboarding, and playing with his kids. He and his wife have a son, Ethan and two daughters, Lily and Noelle.
