David Samadi is originally from Iran. When he was still a boy, his family had to flee the country, because of the political turmoil that was going in the country in the late 1970’s. He spent the rest of his childhood in the US and Europe where he attended various schools. By 1994 he graduated from Stony Brook School of Medicine with an MD. He worked for a while at Montefiore Medical Centre, before going to France to study robotic surgery. In fact, it was while practicing in France that he completed his fellowship in robotic radical prostatectomy.
After returning to the US he began his practice, specializing in Urology and cancer treatment. He specializes in prostate, kidney, and bladder related cancer. Because of his commitment towards individual patient care, rather than taking a one size fits all approach, he quickly became one of the most respected cancer treatment specialists in this region. One of his specialties is his method of treating cancer using minimally invasive methods. He is also credited with finding innovative ways and is considered a pioneer of sorts in prostate surgery. To date, he has over 7000 successful surgeries under his belt.

Also on the project were dozens of other sub-contractors but not all of them were mentioned by name.
“We had been looking at making a big push in primary care clinics,” Dr. McCormack said. “It appears as more people come into the region, they’re either moving into South Reno or in Spanish Springs.”
The clinic as Renowns newest addition will now have 13 locations spread across Reno-Sparks, Carson City, Fallon Fernley and the Caughlin Ranch area providing primary care clinics and other vital health services.
In a telephone interview with NNBW, Dr. McCormack the director of Renown Medical Group expressed that this new clinic was also being designed to provide more than just medical services in a comfortable setting.
