Dr. Sameer Jejurikar is Dallas’ most successful plastic surgeon. He is a partner in the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute and a member of the International Multi-society Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force. He is a Minnesota native, and after completing medical school at the University of Michigan, he attended Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital to continue his studies.
Dr. Sam soon became interested in cosmetic surgery. Although, his studies did not stop there. He is now enrolled in the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University to achieve his executive MBA. Dr. Sam Jejurikar hopes being in this program will give him more control over his business. He’d like to stop relying on consultants for business decisions.
Dr. Sam Jejurikar is very involved in pro bono work in other countries for less fortunate individuals. Some of his patients have cleft lips and palates among other deformities. A passion of his is offering essential care to people that need it the most. The difficult trips are satisfying because of the gratification he receives after helping others.
In his personal practice, Dr. Sam is very “hands on” with his patients. He encourages a comfortable environment for his patients, so they do not feel rushed or overlooked. The goal is to allow all patients to express themselves in an open manner by listening to their needs, and developing a personalized plan for each one. Dr. Sam also wants the patients to go into surgery without questions or doubts, and be fully informed on what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
Therefore, Dr. Sam does not involve much time in marketing strategies. He firmly believes in customer service, and generating patients through positive word-of-mouth. Holding on to a thousand or so happy patients, diminishes the need to have new ones.
