    Dr. Pozsgay took the time to answer my many questions about the surgery and recovery. My hernia repair was so successful that I walked a mile 3 days after surgery and ran a five mile race just 21 days later. Zero complications and I only needed one pain tab.

    Dr. Pozsgay is a very caring doctor, with a wonderful bedside manner. He literally took as much time as I needed to explain the surgery he was doing, even drawing it out on the patient table paper! He come highly recommended from me!
