Dr. Samadi’s unique approach is a personalized one. His is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. He tailors each program for the individual and personally takes care of them from day one. Every step of the way, he educates and supports his patients. He consistently follows up with each and every one of them to check on their progress. His philosophy is not letting the patient decide on treatment alone; he guides them every step of the way.
