Matthew D. Callaway, MD
My Dad was an orthopedic surgeon here in El Dorado and instilled in me not only the finer points of medicine, but a ‘knack’ for treating work-related injuries and office-based surgeries. A large part of my practice remains treatment of muscle and skeletal related problems.

The best thing about working at SAMA is that I have access to an unlimited supply of Butterfinger candy bars!

Lauren Roberts, APRN
Advanced Practice Registered Nurse
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, Arkansas, and my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
My husband Matt and I have been married since 2019, and we just had our first child, Rhett, in February of 2022.
When I’m not working, I love watching sports, mostly football and baseball – mainly the Arkansas Razorbacks!
The thing I love most about SAMA is that it feels like more than a team; it feels like a family.
