    Sep 21, 2021
    This Dr. is absolutely AWESOME!!! Bed side manor is the best I've ever experienced! if you're thinking about having hernia surgery with him don't hesitate make the call. I had abdominal hernia surgery with him and i couldn't be more pleased! he takes all the time you could possibly want to answer questions and he makes sure you know he's going to take exceptional care of you and he did. i was in surgery at 10:00 and being wheeled out of the hospital by 2:30 the nursing staff were absolutely phenomenal as well!! all very friendly and extremely upbeat!! I'm almost completely healed now and feeling great! Thank you DR.!!
