I don’t think have thanked you enough for the wonderful job you did on my surgery. I love the results. I really thank you and your staff for taking such good care of me. So I thank you very, very much for your kindness, skills, professionalism and expertise. You’ve made a wonderful difference on my life. You are the Doctor that every patient should be so lucky to have. My life is better because of you.

Dear Dr. Samra,

I really appreciate all of your efforts in making sure I was taken care of as a patient when visiting your office. Your kindness eased my anxiety about the entire situation. Thank you for all that you’ve done and for treating me like family from the minute we called you. I am feeling better now and am at a loss for words to describe my gratitude.

Dr.Samra is hands down the best multi-talented doctor in the area. Plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and also dermatology. If it weren’t for doctor Samra noticing a melanoma “that was over looked several times by other doctors” I might not be here today. I have had both cosmetic and medically necessary surgery with Dr. Samra for over 10 years now and I would not even dream of going to anyone else. Always pleasant, professional and knows his stuff like no other! I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about his practice.

Dr. Samra was wonderful. He answered all of my questions and spent over 30 minutes consulting with me about a simple procedure. The office is beautiful and I barely had a wait time. The office manager was informative and able to answer all questions about scheduling, payment, and preop testing. Excellent visit start to finish. I would highly recommend to others.


I went in and was nervous about getting a Lipoma from my head. Dr. Samra put me at ease and has a great bedside manner as well. You can’t even tell where I had the surgery.
