Samuel David Butensky, MD


Originally from Livingston, NJ, I studied biomedical engineering at Duke University and graduated in 2015. Afterwards, I was a research assistant in a neuro-engineering lab before attending Hofstra University for medical school. I graduated in 2021, and I'm currently a General Surgery intern at Yale. I'm a movie fanatic: my top three are The Matrix, Shawshank Redemption, and A Few Good Men. I also love music, having played jazz trumpet for 15 years. I'm a Cameron Crazy, and I root for the Yankees/Knicks/Giants.
