Dr. Sameer Jejurikar has been practicing out of the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute since the year 2009 and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also one of the most compassionate doctors in the United States according to his own patients and how they rated and reviewed him through various online outlets. The certification was presented by Patient’s Choice where the patients themselves vote and the honor was seconded by the American Registry LLC. Along with the honor itself, he was also presented with a personalized plaque which he proudly displays.
The 2012 Compassionate Doctor Certification recipient was only one of the three percent of 870,000 physicians being voted on to receive this recognition and he is deeply honored by the award. Dr. Sameeer, known as Dr. Sam to many of his patients, received almost perfect ratings by his patients overall, but especially in bedside manner. To Jejurikar, taking care of a patient’s emotional needs is just as if not more important as taking care of their medical needs and it can affect the patients’ outcome overall. He is trained in both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery which has been immensely useful for some of the more complicated cases that have been under his care.
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar earned both his Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry and his medical degree from the University of Michigan. He was invited into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor’s Society while attending the University of Michigan Medical School until 1997. After graduation, his residency was also completed through the University of Michigan followed by a Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery at the world-renowned Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. His first position after his Fellowship was at the Scott and White Medical Center in Texas until he became a surgeon at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in 2009.
