as my second appointment with him it was very professional. Because I am from another country sometime I feel that I need more time to process information with the Dr . I feel the Dr is very kind with their patients.

Dr Samer Attar is the most caring doctor and empathic doctor I have ever had. His primary concern is the patient and he takes all the time that one needs to explain and put one at ease about their condition. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs his surgical expertise.

Dr. Samer Attar is highly recommended to all I speak with that need to have knee replacement. He operated on my mother that is 82 years old and her left knee is great. Now she may need her right knee replaced which we talked to Dr Attar about.
