Before my surgery with Dr. Sama, I felt like I couldn’t do anything. It was difficult for me to walk without stopping, bend down, lift things and so much more. While I am a social person, the excruciating pain I was in made it nearly impossible for me to leave my house, which really affected my mental health. I visited many physicians hoping to figure out the cause of my pain and find a solution, but each one wrote me off. When I had my first appointment with Dr. Sama, it finally felt like someone was listening to me and taking my pain seriously.
The day I found out I was a candidate for surgery, my whole life changed, something all my friends and family noticed as well. After my surgery, I became much happier and am able to do so many things I couldn’t before. I can spend time with friends and family again, walk without having to stop several times and even do small things like load my dishwasher.
There is no place in the world like HSS and SpineCare of NY, it is a well-oiled machine and each staff member I encountered was so lovely and kind. The entire process from beginning to end went smoothly, and everyone made sure I felt comfortable and at ease from beginning to end. The people are the reason that SpineCare and HSS are so great.
I have always had such a high regard for physicians, and it meant the world to me when I visited Dr. Sama and he truly listened and cared about my wellbeing. Dr. Sama gave me the freedom of movement and I am forever thankful – he is magic. I continue to recommend Dr. Sama to any person that is in pain, because I know he will be able to change their life.
