Dr. Said Samra did for me, what I never thought could be done. I had numerous lumpectomies in the years before and had a very noticeable size difference in my breasts, along with a terrible scar that was deformed. He made me feel normal again. I was always so self-conscious about my breasts and he did an amazing job. I actually really love my breasts right now. He is the kindest, most gentle, professional doctor I have ever been to. I would recommend him any day. I am truly grateful that I found him. He is an angel.

I had a minor procedure done by D. Samara which had been attempted before by another physician. Dr. Samara’s results were far superior. In addition to his medical expertise, he communicates very well. I would highly recommend him.
