"This review is long overdue. I had a revision rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Saman in February and cannot express enough just how happy I am with him and with my results. Dr. Saman always patiently and actively listened to my concerns and questions, always taking his time to explain his thoughts and recommendations in return. Within the first moments of him walking into the room, it was apparent that Dr. Saman is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his patients and his work. Not only is Dr. Saman an amazing and meticulous surgeon, but he turns his craft into a true art form, understanding that mere millimeters make all the difference for the best results. Most of all, it has always been blatantly obvious that Dr. Saman deeply cares for his patients' happiness and well-being, wishing them newfound comfort and confidence after their procedures.
