    He speaks in everyday language you can understand. He explained what would take place during my surgery. After my Hernia surgery he came to the waiting rm to speak to my family about how the surgery went. He also checked on me the same night and the next morning. I would definitely recommend this doctor to everyone. I felt like he did a good job with my surgery. I am healing well.
