“In November 2014 I was shocked to learn that I had prostate cancer. At age 51, I thought that either happened to other people or much later in life. I quickly transitioned from disbelief to exploring my options. As others know who have been down this path, exhaustive research often leads to even more questions. I contacted several major Cancer centers across the US in search of options. This research and further testing/diagnosis pointed toward robotic prostatectomy as my best option. I knew that for this surgery, I wanted the best surgeon I could find. Research indicated that Dr. Samadi was the best surgeon with a great number of surgeries performed. I contacted the office and Dr. Samadi called me on a Saturday afternoon to discuss my diagnosis and the procedure. Once I talked with him, I felt confident that I was in the right hands. My surgery was in 01/15. Dr. Samadi and his team did an excellent job preparing me for the surgery. All indications are that the surgery was a success. My wife and I are very grateful to Dr. Samadi for all he has done for us.”

Dr. Samadi, you are obviously a masterful surgeon. In addition to your individual talents, you are also a tremendous CEO. I worked in the financial services industry for 37 years, and what separates the good from the great is the ability to put together a great team. Everyone from your office staff to your surgical staff has been outstanding. They are all knowledgeable, courteous and patient, and they all seem to enjoy their work. Dr. Samadi, I feel like you saved my life and that Arta saved my sanity. She is wonderful!

About 14 months ago, my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A cancer diagnosis is always upsetting and decisions about whether to choose surgery or radiation can be both scary and perplexing. As we researched the best treatment for my husband’s prostate cancer, we were so very fortunate to be referred by our family physician to Dr. David Samadi, who performed a prostatectomy on my husband a year ago. With his credentials and reputation, we never doubted Dr. Samadi’s excellence, but assumed we would have limited contact with such a busy, high-profile doctor, which we soon discovered to be the opposite. From our first visit, Dr. Samadi reassured us that our decision for surgery was the absolute right one, and that “many years from now, we will be glad we made the decision to have surgery.”
We are both so grateful for your continued excellent care and treatment! If there is any other way I can support your mission, please let me know – I am a strong proponent of paying it forward!
Pat G.We are both so grateful for your continued excellent care and treatment!
Im not sure if this is the right forum but I hope this email makes its way to you. As I sit at home recuperating from surgery you performed this past Wednesday 4/29 I just felt a need to reach out to you to thank you for saving my life. I am positive you have heard this thousands of times but you can add me to the list. You are an unbelievable professional! Your skill, bedside manner..you and ALL of your staff are simply the BEST. Simply put, Dr. Samadi “gets it”..I have heard you say that your patients are like your family and i truly felt like part of your family this week. Your facility and the people who run it are outstanding. Not only the patient, but the family of the patient is treated in a special way that is not seen anywhere else…

I am pleased and proud to add my comments to the patients list of success stories. I had been affected by BPH (growing prostate) for 10 years.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in January of 2014. After researching for a surgeon the name Dr. David Samadi kept coming up for his expertise and great results. I got an appointment and went in to see Dr. Samadi and was already convinced (from what I read) that I wanted my prostate removed.
