Dr. David Samadi’s Incredible Life Story
The title of Dr. David Samadi’s favorite book “Anything is Possible” by Elizabeth Strout aptly describes David’s life in three words. Born in Iran during the Iranian Revolution that started in 1978, David overcame adversity and achieved the American dream. The Iranian Revolution marked the end of 2,500 years of Persian rule and the beginning of Dr. Samadi’s immaculate career and life story.

David completed high school in the United States and attended Stony Brooks University where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry. In 2000, he managed to achieve one of his life goals, which was to become a fully licensed physician.
