I LOVED Dr. Said Samra!!! He stitched my nose back up after a Mohs procedure and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Not only do you BARELY see my scar, but he was so incredibly kind, gentle, and sensitive to my feelings of anxiousness during the procedure that he made my experience such a positive one. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Samra to anyone who needs plastic surgery or cosmetic services of any kind.
Thank you so very much!!!!

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.

After having 4 kids and losing some weight recently, I decided to visit Dr. Samra to get his opinion on ways to improve my loose stomach skin and breasts that lost a lot of volume. From the moment I walked in I was greeted by friendly front office staff. Dr. Samra went over all options and gave his recommendations for what would give me optimal results. I am a week and a half post op from a breast lift with augmentation, a mini tummy tuck and liposuction of my stubborn love handles. To say I am thrilled with my results is an understatement!! Dr. Samra is so sweet and kind and puts you at ease and is truly skilled at what he does. His medical assistants Sam T. and Sam G. are very knowledgeable and take amazing care of their patients. Danielle, the surgical coordinator, handled everything for me and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Dr. Samra.

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 had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Said Samra and his office staff this past week at my appointment. Not only is he an extremely professional surgeon and doctor but he is very knowledgeable and sincerely compassionate. Office staff was friendly, inviting, and accommodating. I recommend this office to anyone looking for beautiful work and thorough care.
