Sam Shores, FNP-BC

Care team with Dr. Peter Copsis and Dr. Caroline Lee Wilds.

Sam Says:

“As a nurse, I have had the privilege of serving the public in a variety of healthcare settings in several different roles. Over the years, I have found that when I combine the principles of holistic nursing – involving the mind, body, and spirit – with the principles of evidence-based practice, the relationship between provider and patient is extraordinarily enriched. The joy that I feel when patients are appreciative of my care assures me that I chose the right profession.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy fitness activities and fundraisers, walks with my Pit-Husky, live music scenes and supporting local businesses of the greater Charlotte area.”
