Cailin Frank, DO

Dr. Frank's Bio

I am originally from Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Yes, Scranton is just north of us and yes, I have seen The Office.  I went to University of Pittsburgh for undergrad and in my final year I acquired a puppy dog named Franklin although that is the one name I barely ever call him.  He traveled with me to West Virginia where I attended WVSOM and - honest to God - learned how to play the spoons on my knee.  I have been in Memphis since 2013 for Pediatric residency and now PEM fellowship.  During my first year in Memphis I acquired another four-legged roommate named Delta.  I love to travel and see live music among many other things.  

I love Le Bonheur and look forward to working everyday for our patients and community - how many people can say that?  Our program has awesome leadership, busy departments, high-acuity patients, ample opportunity for procedures, and an avenue to explore whatever niche you desire - I could go on but there are too many things to list.  To be honest I did not plan to fall in love with Memphis when I moved here but it happened.   Not only is it affordable it has a variety of rural and inner city living options with barely any traffic, no trouble parking, and no need for reservations wherever you go.  It's a small town in a big city - the local, homegrown feel is here.

Megan Sampson, MD

Dr. Sampson's Bio

I am originally from Omaha NE. I am married (Luis), have two daughters (Scarlett 9 and Loretta 6), and a giant fur baby (Storm). I attended medical school at AT Still SOMA completing the final 3 years at the Beaufort SC campus. I completed a pediatrics residency at USD school of medicine in Sioux Falls, SD. I have since been at Le Bonheur for fellowship and loving it. 

When I am not working or entertaining my tiny humans I enjoy crafting (yarn crafts, sewing, laminating…), playing guitar (mostly hip hop acoustic covers), Rollerblading, and any form of outdoor activity or exercise. I am currently training for Memphis’s first Ironman 70.3 (October 2020). 

Things I love about being and ED fellow at Le Bonheur- the insane amount of high acuity patients (trauma, trauma, trauma), procedures galore, my co fellows (they are amazing), the PEMS (variety of styles and easy to work with) and the southern accents/ sayings. Memphis has a lot of offer for adults and tiny humans alike and we very much enjoy calling it home.

Benjamin Silva, MD

Dr. Silva's Bio

Growing up in the heat of Texas, Ben always figured his lifeguard training as a teenager would evolve into something greater. This journey has taken him through Aggieland, back home to San Antone, and finally to that weird place called Austin. Now sure enough, from the pool to the bedside, he enjoys the honor of listening, investigating, and reassuring patients and families from all walks of life! There’s rarely a dull moment in the ED, but when it happens, the company one is with makes the difference. This is especially true at LeBonheur Children’s. The same applies outside the ED doors – Ben’s wife brings balance and general loveliness to their days either trying to find more adrenaline (e.g. cycling, playing outdoors) or enjoying the simple, relaxing things in life (e.g. walks, sunsets, tacos, and ice cream).
