What People Say About Dr. Kian Samimi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I, like another reviewer went to Dr. Samimi after needing a 4th revision to my double mastectomy.  My other surgeries were done by a Plastic Surgeon in Orange County who no longer took my insurance. Since I now live in San Diego I took my time researching every Plastic Surgeon in this area.  When I read Dr. Samimi's Curriculum Vitae and his reviews, I knew I had found the right surgeon for me.  I was not wrong.  My surgery went well and I am recovering nicely.  Dr. Samimi offered me an honest opinion and answered all my questions.  He was patient, kind and encouraging.   His staff was equally competent taking care of insurance or addressing any concerns or questions I had.  I am thankful to Dr. Samimi for choosing this field of surgery to go into.  I am a grateful recipient of his eye for aesthetics and his skill to help make imperfections better.

Being new to San Diego and needing a fourth breast surgery to fix some issues with my original double mastectomy implant reconstruction - I was very nervous as I had the same surgeon for the first three surgeries. Dr. Samimi put those fears at rest. He is very skilled, caring, and easy to talk with. My surgery was not cosmetic, post mastectomy surgeries are just to get you to a "best place" - you still lost your breasts and it is not a surgery I would wish on anyone. But if you need post mastectomy implant work - he's your guy. Heaven forbid I need a fifth surgery, but if I do - it will definitely be Dr. Samimi. He worked within the confines of my insurance, helped fix some previous post surgery healing issues, and helped me feel better about my chest. Be sure to meet with him, you won't be sorry you did.

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Dr. Samimi and his staff are. I was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2016. I decided to have a double mastectomy and wanted a same-day reconstruction surgery. After being referred to other plastic surgeons in the area and leaving each one in tears because they refused to do a same day surgery, I started doing my own research. In addition to the results I found by doing research on-line, I was also given the recommendation b

I would never go here again, especially for a consultation. Careful they will charge you and you won't even know until month's later. Don't walk, run from this place
