K.R., Customer

Patty Gogerty is just THE BEST!!!! We were so confused when we began going to her for advice on supplemental insurances for both my husband and myself. She guided us through the hoops and saved us hours and hours of stressful time... She did not push any one insurance at us, rather gave us our options with clear cut data and then waited for us to make our choices... I can't imagine navigating through this nightmare of benefits without a the person she is. She is able to navigate quickly through many computer screens and enter our information with immediate results.. Please, please do not eliminate this service.... Many, many folks would be lost and paying much more than they needed to. Plus, you have to understand there are millions of retired folks that don't even own a computer or iPhone... Thanks, Patty, for the GREAT service you provide and your love and compassion!

Because you have an older representative, I feel much more trusting. This person has not only seen and learned about all customers, but she has experienced her own life and understands closer to home the needs of those getting older.

You saved me money , and you know what you're talking about. I appreciate it and thank you.

Customer since 2015

I like the fact that I visit regularly with Patricia and go over any questions and she is able to get me the best insurance plans available.

Karen R., customer since 2015

The coverage and options process was explained thoroughly and simply. Too many insurance agents speak "insurance hoo-hah", and that's why they don't get my business! In business, as in life, it's always best to keep it simple.

Skip H., customer since 2015

You've always been able to answer all of our questions in a very professional way... and it speeds up the whole process of figuring out what insurance is the best

Linda B., customer since 2015

Patty has taken care of being sure I have had the best coverage for the money for over 15 years. She always alerts me to any better coverage on her own. She takes the time to explain all the options to you and gives a clear picture. She is a dedicated and resourceful agent.

Linda H., customer since 1996

Very prompt in getting back to me. Explained everything explicitly. Very happy with Patty!

Karen B., customer since 2015

You showed up at my door before I was ready to get supplemental insurance. But I remembered you because of it. Then, before I signed with you I had tried to see if I qualified for any help with costs thru Human Services. I didn't, but I was told by a caseworker to check online for what was offered. When I mentioned your company, she said you were very competitive and up to date. She had a good report about you.

You have been very attentive, friendly and helpful at all times.

Customer since 2015

We like the fact that Patty Gogerty has always quickly returned our calls and kept us informed about our insurance needs.


I have always been greeted at the front desk with a smile, and It is the personal touch that Janet offers to her clients. It's like coming to visit a friend...and oh, also, discussing my insurance needs. lol Janet is so friendly, I never feel rushed out, how could anyone go anywhere else? My insurance needs are well handled. I never have to worry about my rates, coverage or claim forms. When I have concerns I can call Janet and she will fix it. It's great peace of mind. As for the first question, I have recommended Sams-Hockaday many times and will continue to do so. Thank you for a great service.

Customer since 2013

Speaking with Patty Gogarty helped us make some financial decisions which really helped us out

Patricia G., customer since 2013

Just keep us informed of changes and improvements to insurance.


Very helpful in comparing the various products available on the market.

Customer since 2015

Patty, you and anyone that I have ever talked to in your company, have always been very pleasant and very helpful! My experience with you is that you work

Millicent S., customer since 2012

It has been a long time since I had to look for insurance coverage as I was covered by my employer. Now that I am going on Medicare and will no longer have insurance coverage by my employer, I needed someone with knowledge in the field to help me. Pat was not only very knowledgeable, she took the time to research the different companies and found me the best coverage for the cost.

William C., customer since 2015

At Sams/Hockaday Insurance you get the best from the best. It's nice to know that there are agents out there that take pride in their work and care for the wellbeing of their clients. Everything is explained in detail and you are fitted with the best group for your needs. Plus if the rates are raising the agents will find a new company with a lower premium but carries the same great coverage. What more can a client ask for!

Marilynn W., customer since 2015

The thing that was most helpful to us was the knowledge you have about all the Medicare supplemental insurance programs and Medicare part D pharmacy programs that are out there which helped us make our decisions much easier, without the hassle of contacting them ourselves. The quick, friendly service was also appreciated.

Susan R., customer since 2015

I've always been able to get very helpful information from my agent Patty Gogerty, and she got me all set up with all my Medicare plans three years ago and continues to steer me through my renewals (or changes) each year! Also, when I moved from Decatur, IL, to Lexington, SC, I was able to stay with my agent without any problems. I've had excellent service from this agency.

Deborah F., customer since 2012

I liked the way Patricia helped me with my Medicare and supplemental insurance needs. She made it very easy and less confusing.

Customer since 2015

Trusting this company, Patty Gogerty specifically, to provide the appropriate supplement and prescription insurance to fit my needs takes a huge weight off my shoulders.

Customer since 2013

Maximum involvement by Patty Gogerty in finding the best products that suit my needs, and a minimal involvement required on my part!
