I had a serious injury to the mid humorous. Dr. Dart explained the surgical and non-surgical options. He recommended surgery for best treatment and I am so glad he did. The healing time was much faster once surgery was completed. Great group of people to work with.

Review for Dr. abu-Samra

Might be knowledgeable, but cares more about money than the well-being of her patients. She is also quite insensitive, has rude staff (and even ruder PAs), and there is no patient privacy in her office.
