    I had an open inguinal hernia surgery from this dr. After I booked my surgery my own pcp was very upset with my decision to choose caren. I went through with surgery. As far as surgery I don't if she did good or bad...I'm not trained for that. The reason she gets a 1 star is the lack of preoffesionalism shown by her staff. They are a very rude staff and not helpful at all. I wouldn't recommend you to take your dog to her let alone your self
