    Awesome doctor!! My husband was the patient, so I had a lot of communication with the doctor. My opinion is that he is very knowledgeable and talented as a surgeon, he is very respectful, compassionate, and takes time to listen attentively and answer any and all questions. I feel so blessed that he was my husband's surgeon. My husband was airlifted and had emergency surgery.
