So thankful to have found Dr. Samad. He is the kindest doctor I have ever met. He is also the best spine surgeon you could find. After putting off surgery for way too long, I have my life back, can go for long walks again and stand in the kitchen long enough to make a decent meal. For the first time in years I am pain free. I never dreamed that surgery would be the answer. I cannot say enough good things about Florida Orthopaedic Institute and Dr. Samad!
