"I went to Dr Saman for surgical removal of my thyroid. While no one wants to go through surgery for cancer, Dr Saman and his staff made the experience as easy as possible and did a great job minimizing worries. There is always a ton of testing, coordination and review and his team did an amazing job. Highly recommended him for his surgical skill and his office for their prompt, efficient, quick assistance. After I heal from this surgery, I will gladly use him for his surgical skill in plastic surgery."- M.P. / Yelp / Jan 12, 2020
"I never write reviews, but I could not pass on an opportunity to express how amazing Dr. Saman and his team is. I've hated the shape of my nose since I was about 12 or 13. After doing lots of research on rhinoplasty, I felt that Dr. Saman was the perfect man for the job. I went to the consultation, and him and his team were so sweet and supportive. You can tell that they really care about your concerns and I immediately knew I was in good hands. The surgery is over now, and I am 100% satisfied with the results. I think Dr. Saman and his team were just as excited as me during the reveal. These people live to see their clients smile! I can't say enough good things. Amazing experience."- K.A. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020
