Dr. Samra is amazing. He is thorough and does not take unnecessary risks. My friend was in the hospital for a collapsed lung. Instead of kicking him out the door, he took a cautious approach and the necessary steps to assure his lung did not collapse again. He spoke to us with the utmost respect and explained everything, every step of the way. Thank you so much Dr Samra. You are truly a life saver and a pleasure....Cheryl

Dr. Samra is the best vascular surgeon around!!! I have had 2 ablasions done on both my legs with severe vericose veins and poor blood circulation. I have a problem scheduling to see him when he wants to see me and have ultrasound done in the 2 week spand from 7/10/17 appointment. They put me in their computer with a Dr I have never seen before in August 5 weeks after I saw Dr. Samra. I love my Dr but do not appreciate how I am getting treated by the hospital scheduling department. Unbelievable

Dr. Samra first assisted with my emergency heart by pass surgery , 2am. at Deborah Hospital, he came in my room and made me very comfortable prior to surgery. three years later he is again helping me with a vascular issue, most talented and very professional, the best !!!!

I was diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysm by accident. My GP sent me to Dr. Samra and he was perfect. Great bedside manner and totally knowledgeable. Walked me through the procedure then scheduled it. It went exactly how he said it would, before, during and after surgery. First thing he said when I awoke was "Could not have gone any better" On a scale of 1 to 10 he`s an 11. He and my GP saved my life. Had this procedure 3 days ago and almost back to 100%

I would recommend Dr. Samra in a heartbeat . Not only did he find my problem and correct it, he put me at ease throughout the entire process. Not only is he an excellent surgeon he also most definitely wins in the bedside manner section of any doctor I have ever seen. Thank you Dr. Samra !
