I have been in pain for over 2 years with 2 bulging discs. I’ve done numerous things to try and help but nothing has worked. I was referred to a surgeon which I was extremely nervous about because I have never had surgery before and having 3 kids, 1 being special needs I had to do something because it wasn’t fair to my kids. I wasn’t able to be the mom I needed to be. I went in for a consultation with Dr. Samad. He came in friendly and took his time to answer any questions I had. Based on everything he went over with my MRI he recommended I have surgery. He told me to go home and talk it over with my husband and write down any questions and to make a follow up appointment. I came back with all of my questions and he answered all of them. I ended up scheduling surgery. It was the best thing for me and I am so glad I did it. Recovery wasn’t bad at all. I was up walking the next day. Dr. Samad was amazing. He even called my husband to check up on me the day after we left the hospital. He gave me my life back. I am not in anymore pain. I would recommend him to anyone who asks about an orthopaedic surgeon. He’s the best!
