I wish I could give 7 Stars! Even the moment Dr. Samadi informed me I had prostate cancer in me, I already knew I was going to get excellent care. He is extremely careful, articulate in his explanations, professional and understanding about others' concerns, and most importantly, in his goal which is to cure early stage of cancer. I just had my robotic prostatectomy, and he was not only accurate in what to predict post surgery regarding side effects, his support staff (almost good enough to be doctors too) have continued to be there to answer questions and help in some of those side areas. Dr. Samadi has arranged a special ward at Lenox Hill Hospital, and that area does not even look like a hospital - the nurse to patient ratio felt like 1 to 2. The hospital nurses are very patient and they are very attentive to your needs, notably to comfort and alleviating pain. Most importantly, Dr S and the nurses do not lie or exaggerate about what you will feel or have. I received the pathology report in the manner that Dr S and his staff predicted, based on my age and stats - I still am in the waiting game as to whether the PSA is down to 0 (or at least below 0.1) - blood test in another month - so you can imagine that feeling in unnerving, but his staff continues to be optimistic on mine. When I received a 2nd opinion about having this surgery, it came from someone who is a non-surgeon but who is highly respected and qualified to make the determination. Believe me when I tell you that I am easily nervous about prognosis, I feel and felt very comfortable in all of Dr Samadi's care. Even though he is very busy because of his practice, surgery, and media attention, you feel you have his 100% attention when he is attending to your appointment. He also is very personable. His staff and supporting staff (and other Drs) highly respect his work.

My surgery was completed by Dr. Samadi on Dec. 10,2014. I had completed a bizarre series of consultations with various physicians prior to the surgery and was totally confused. But one thing I had read online was always nagging at me. That advice was that you will know what you will do when you meet the Dr. that you most trust. There was no doubt in my mind that, after meeting Dr. Samadi , he was the dr. that I was going to be treated by. I was all set to do radiation, but I wanted just one more opinion. I went to see Dr. Samadi and told him I was set to do the radiation in one week unless he could convince me otherwise. After speaking with him, I went from "I'll think about it", to "when can we do this". The surgery was done two weeks later and I haven't looked back. I had no problems after the surgery, no pads from day one, and feel great. I think the thing I feel best about is that I went for that last opinion. I was so impressed by his passion for his work, and his incredible confidence in himself that he can almost guarantee that you are in the hands of the best surgeon possible. Having confidence in your dr. and the procedure is so important to your health success.
I recommend him with no hesitation whatsoever. Believe me, you can't go wrong. It's worth the trip from wherever you are. Put your health in the hands of this fine man. You'll never look back and you'll consider yourself incredibly blessed.
Dr. S.F.

I was apprehensive about having prostate surgery, but there was no need to be. The procedure was painless and the outcome completely corrected my problem. Dr. Samadi and his office staff treat patients with enormous courtesy and respect. The hospital arrangements at Lenox Hill were excellent in every way--the attentiveness and responsiveness of the nursing staff, the dedicated wing with private rooms for Dr. Samadi's patients, the well prepared food, the opportunity to interact with other patients, the comfort provided to my wife and family members who visited -- all these things definitely contributed to my easy recovery. Before having this procedure, I consulted other well-known surgeons, but none could match Dr. Samadi. He is the best choice for anyone who wants the highest level of care.

Thank You all Very Much!! I highly recommend anyone with a Urological medical concern to please visit Dr. Samdi and his fabulous team.

Would have given him 10 stars if that was possible. From beginning to end, Dr. Samadi and team were compassionate, caring and focused on achieving the best outcome possible. I came in from out of the area and Dr. Samadi even did a weekend consultation with me over the phone (and he had offered to Skype). It is now 10 weeks since my surgery and I am fully recovered with undetectable PSA. My cancer was near the nerves but Dr. Samadi through his SMART technique managed to somehow remove the cancer without causing any of the side effects which are associated with nerve damage. We did significant research before selecting Dr. Samadi and at the end selected him because other prostate cancer surgeons recommended him the most and because he does the entire procedure from end to end. His attention to every detail is incredible, and the recovery experience in a private wing of Lennox Hill hospital is the best place I can imagine post-surgery. I could not recommend Dr. Samadi and his team more highly.

Dr Samadi and his staff, both in his office and at Lenox Hill, exceeded my expectations in every way. The professionalism and care that I have received from them has given me great comfort in knowing that I made the absolute best choice for my prostate surgery. Having a dedicated floor at Lenox Hill allows his patients to interact during the short time in the hospital, which also reduced the stress and worry about the surgery. If we were located within a general area of the hospital we would not have had the camaraderie during our many walks down the hall. Now, four months later, I feel great physically, and also mentally, knowing that I am cancer free.
Thank you Dr. Samadi.

Dr. Samadi has given me a second chance at life. On March 31st at age 55 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and my life immediately changed. To say the least just hearing the cancer word makes you believe your going to die. Especially after losing both parents to cancer. I was scared for myself and my family and felt completely overwhelmed with the recent diagnosis and how it should be addressed. Through some research I located Dr. David Samadi. My wife and I travelled to New York to meet with him and from that day forward we undoubtedly trusted him and his expertise and were certain he would save my life. Dr. Samadi performed surgery to remove my prostate. His personal attention and bedside manner was far beyond my expection. Not only was the surgery a success but now after receiving two pathology reports I am cancer free! Dr. Samadi and his physician assistant Arta Seferi were sent to me from heaven. They are amazing! I can never say enough thank you's. God bless them forever.

Dr. Samadi and his staff were tremendous. I cannot say enough about their attention, concern and PROFFESIONALISM. He is an absolute professional. There was never a feeling that he was rushing to get to his next patient. The doctor and his staff all took their time to listen to my complaints and concerns. They explained what was going on, what they wanted to do and what I could expect. Most important, he delivered what he said he would. The doctor’s assistant, Arda, was also amazing. She even made sure to give me her e-mail address so that I could contact her with any questions or concerns. She even called me on several occasions before and after my surgery just to see how I was doing. Dr. Samadi has a floor designated solely for his own patients at Lenox Hill. He is very proud of his floor and the treatment his patients receive. There were usually two (2) or three (3) nurses on duty. There was no waiting for them to respond when I “pushed the button”.
