When Dr. Somkiat Viratyosin (known as Dr. Sam) was a young man living in Thailand, practicing medicine in a rural area is exactly what he expected to do. He received most of his medical training in the United States, receiving his Bachelor of Science and medical degree from Brown University in Providence, R.I. Dr. Sam returned to Thailand to practice medicine and finish his training in Orthopedic Surgery. He returned to the U.S. for general surgery residency at University of Massachusetts Medical School and fellowship in Orthopedics at Birkshire Medical Center.
Dr. Sam has a broad array of focuses including colonoscopy for screening, diagnosis and treatment, and upper GI endoscopies. As a member of the American Board of Surgery, he also performs a variety of surgical procedures including hernia repair, bowel surgery, appendectomy, tubal ligation, and cesarean sections.
