Your quick and efficient response to a client is what Sams Hockday is know for in this area and the fact that you always keep on top of client needs. I always appreciate that you call me at renewal if you see changes that I need to be aware of, and do what ever it takes to keep my premium at the lowest point. Your employees are always great to deal with . You are always at the top of my referral list ! Keep up the great work.

I treasure your reliability. I know when I contact you you will respond and try to find the best coverage for us at am amount we can afford. You're always a pleasure to deal with and I'm so glad a friend referred me to you. I've shared with a lot of friends how happy we are with your service, professionalism and reliability.

Good comparison of different insurance available saving us as much as possible and still providing good coverage.
J.M., 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
Did a wonderful job of explaining how the plans work. Made everything so easy for me.
Customer since 2015
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
You have been honest and saved me some money.
S.B., Customer
Made my choices so effortless for me and Patty's kindness thru the whole process. Made John and I Very comfortable.
L.D., Customer
Honesty. It is important to me that people give good solid information so I can make the best choice for myself, and that is what I get at Sams/Hockaday. I never fell like I'm just trying to be sold something just to get a sale, I really do feel like I matter. I get honest answers to any question I may ask.
K.I., Customer
Thank you for your continued help. No matter what my problem is you always make time to answer my questions and get me insurance choices for my needs. You also help those I bring in or send youe way. I tell everyone to call your office if they have questions or need help choosing insurance for their needs too. Thanks again Patty G.!!!!
F.B., Customer
Joyce and Patty g are very helpful.
Customer since 2003
Patricia is so knowledgeable and helpful. I felt confident I was making the right supplemental insurance decision.
L.W., Customer
Patty Gogerty is the ABSOLUTE BEST person around to discuss healthcare for seniors! My husband and I are both nurses and are inundated with insurance "plans" and things wanting our money... She is smart, knowledgable, and available to her clients... We have told many people about her and what she can do for them, but many are skeptical, to say the least, with all we have coming at us daily..... We will never change! Give 'em heck Patty!

L.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!
Marilynn W., customer since 2015
I appreciate your continuous monitoring of insurance companies to obtain the best coverage at the best price.
W.C., Customer
I like the personal one on one relationship Sams/Hockaday and all the agents have with all their clients.
S. B., Customer
Always ready to answer questions and help wherever needed.
K.D., 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
Helped get lower fees for my wife's part d without even asking you to do it, we appreciate the excellent way you make us feel that we are important. I have referred business to you several times and I think those referrals also referred contacts to you.
P. C., Customer
Straight forward and down to earth is what I like and you answer all questions or get answers. Thanks for being a friend.
J.T., Customer

Patricia is very helpful with details of what we need for coverage of services
M.M., Customer
Patrician Gogerty was very patient and explained the options that I had. I trusted her advice.
D.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
We felt that we could trust your company and you to make the right recommendations to us. And we were well pleased with your recommendations. When it comes to insurance it's very important to us to be able to trust and feel comfortable with our agent.
P.D., Customer
You do all the research on the plans that fit my needs. It would take me forever to get all the information and go through it.
T.G., Customer
Patti, You actually LISTENED to me and helped me. Medicare was so new to me -- I knew nothing. You took your time and explained things to me and listened to me when I asked questions. You took your time with me. I wasn't rushed. I actually felt important and that you were very concerned with helping me!! I would definitely recommend you to all my friends or to anyone who is applying for Medicare benefits. Jackie Hagan
J.H., Customer
It was like one stop shopping. I went to Sams/Hockaday & Assoc. and sat down with an agent and by checking several companies I was able to find the best insurance that fit my needs and I didn't have to call any of the companies myself. I saved time and money and I got just what I wanted. Meducare supplement insurance, Medicare part D, and life insurance all in one stop. I feel good when I recommend this service to others.
K.I., Customer
I have been nothing but very satisfied with the service i have been given. First, special shoutout to Patty, who has treated me like family - answered all my questions as soon as possible and just been a good friend looking out for a "senior". Also, when I call the office whoever answers the phone have always been very polite and helpful. Actually have recommended you more than once.
M.D., Customer
You explained my options and helped me make decisions based on what I needed. I really appreciate that and your knowledge. Thank you!
L.B., Customer
Even though I live out of state now, I still receive your personal, yet professional, expertise. It's great to have a trusted agent who is just an email or a phone call away. I always feel a little more confident once I talk to Patty.
D.F., Customer
Customer service and follow through - not just lip service.
C.L., Customer
