Mark S,

Monday, August 13th
My name is Mark, I am 63 years old, I was told this past Thursday that I have Gleason 7 prostate cancer.   I decided to make an appointment to see Dr. Samadi... that's how it started.

Friday, August 17th
My wife Sally and I got to your office at 1pm for our 1:30 appointment.  We were warmly greeted and escorted into your office.   and were told you would be in shortly.  As we were waiting , you were walking down the hall, talking on your cell phone.  When you saw us waiting , you asked the person you were talking with to hold on, you walked in, introduced yourself to us, said you would be with us shortly, then looked me right in the eyes and said “and don't you worry about a thing... I've got you.”  That simple act of humanity is something     I will never forget.  It also told me that you were the man I wanted to treat me.

We met with Ann. What can I say.... She was knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and passionate about what she does.  What a joy to know she is part of your team.  I would later learn that she is indicative of everybody on your team.

Then, you came in and we talked.  The more I listened, the more I realized that you were the man I wanted to treat me.  “Mark, I don't care what your Gleason score is... you have a bomb in your body, and were going to get it out.”  My decision was easy.  You suggested we get a private room at Eleven West so Sally could stay with me … we did.  What a good decision that was.  

Friday, September 21st
You performed a robotic protectorate on me, and a week later you called to tell me the pathology showed you had gotten all the cancer and said, “Mark, there is no more cancer in your body.”  Nurse Helen called to check up on me several days later.

I am now 2 ½ weeks post op.  Every single thing that you and your staff said would happen not only happened, but happened when you said it would.

I guess that prostate cancer is a fact of life today.  It truly is a comfort to know that people like you and your team are available to provide superior treatment and offer the best shot at a favorable outcome.  You and your team are exemplary models of how medicine should be practiced and how patients should be treated.

So to Dr. Samadi and to your team, thank you for being so professional, thank you for being so compassionate and thank you most of all for being so HUMAN.  

Thank you so much.

Mark S

My story is surely the same as hundreds of patients that have gone before me, and hundreds more than will come after me. I feel, however, an uncontrollable desire to tell this story, hoping it helps someone who is in the same situation that I was and that they find it inspirational enough to make a decision that will help them feel reborn...

Na de schok van de kanker diagnose, was de volgende stap om de beste doctor te vinden om de prostaat te verwijderen. Ik kwam bij Dr Samadi terecht en die ving me goed op met ondersteuning van uiterst bekwame en zorgzame leden van zijn ploeg. De operatie zelf is kennelijk geheel volgens plan verlopen en de uitkomst is...

לפני זמן קצר, כחודשיים אחרי שעברתי כריתה רדיקלית של בלוטת הערמונית בשיטה הרובוטית, בביצוע ד" דיויד סמאדי, מביה"ח "מאונט סיני" בניו יורק, שאל אותי אחד מחברי הטובים: "היום, בראייה לאחור, האם היית מחליט לעשות אותו דבר? אותה פרוצדורה? אצל אותו רופא?" "בדיוק אותו דבר!" עניתי מיד וללא כל היסוס. לא הייתי צריך לחשוב אפילו שנייה.
