      Dr. Abou-Samra is a first-rate person and doctor. He treated me with respect and kindness at all times. I had anterior cervical discectomy and fusion on 3/4 and 4/5 ten days ago and feel so much better. I wish I had let him perform the surgery a year earlier. Ventura is lucky to have such a fine doctor. P.S. he is punctual, very punctual. I like that. Answered my questions and has a gift for understanding the bigger picture, even when it was difficult for me to find the right words.
