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
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.

I would definitely recommend you to all my friends or to anyone who is applying for Medicare benefits. Jackie Hagan

Sam Hockaday has been a blessing! With all the insurance confusion out there since Obamacare it was hard to find the right insurance for my specific needs but Patty G made it easy for us. She did all the work and continues to work for us. I am so pleased with Sam Hockaday ins that I send everyone that's needing help to them. Thank you Sam and Patty G for taking the stress out of our retirement changes for our insurance needs!! Richard and Frances
F.B., Customer
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!

My agent, Patty Gogerty, is always available to answer questions and prompt in response. She is always looking for the best option for me on my coverage.
L.H., Customer
Personable service, quick response to questions, looking for best options I moved to Florida so I am not able to just go to their office. I rely on quick responses/solutions via phone calls or emails..
M.M., Customer
Patty listened to me regarding my insurance needs and budget. She was personable and caring.
C.A., 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!
L.B., Customer
you were very patient with us and answering our questions. you cover our insurance plans . glad us our insurance papers in a nice folder so we can keep everything together. than you Diana Ruthrauff
D.R., Customer
I was in search of a new Medicare supplement plan when I got a call from Patricia's office. I met with her a few days later, and she helped me through the entire process of picking a new plan. I had been contemplating other changes for a month, but the choices started to confuse me. So, Patricia took the time to explain the differences to me and in no time a all, I had a new plan. I wish I had called her a month ago. Many thanks to you Patricia, and Sams/Hockaday.
R.M., Customer

The most specific thing that I liked about dealing with Patricia Gogerty is her command of the facts about the insurance industry. In my case I needed health insurance to go with my Medicare and Patricia had all of the answers. She is also very price conscious. My wife and I have appreciated her guidance in dealing with supplemental insurances.
