I really just admire how humble, kind, and easy-going he is. He operated on me for my scoliosis surgery which required inserting rods and screws. It was very stressful for my parents, but Dr. Samdani was able to comfort them. In a nutshell, he really cares.

Wonderful Doctor!

Dr. Samdani is the uncanny combination of extremely skilled surgeon and kind and compassionate doctor. He performed a long spinal fusion on my daughter. The results are amazing. He was so kind to us and her. We drove 800 miles to have her surgery because of our level of trust in Dr. Samdani. He is the BEST!
