General Surgery
Two weeks ago, I required laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder. I am very grateful for the care and skill of Doctor Daveshni Kumar. Dr. Kumar became my surgeon through whatever process HonorHealth uses to distribute its cases. I am fortunate she was called. Dr. Kumar visited me in the hospital the morning before, spent a significant amount of time with me, and thoroughly reviewed my situation. She carefully explained how and what she would be doing, and listened carefully to what I asked. Dr. Kumar accurately described how I would feel once in recovery, and I had no surprises. I hurt much less during the week after than I anticipated. At my follow-up appointment another of her patients said, “She’s a great doctor”. I absolutely agree.

Dr. Testa performed my breast reduction in June. He took the time to answer all of my questions at every visit and the surgery itself was very smooth. Recovery has been super easy and I’m very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Testa.

Excellent. Doctor was welcoming and comforting while giving option on my gallbladder surgery. He answer all question I had and explained what to expect from the procedure. The office staff were very nice. They Helped me by submitting paperwork for work and short term. The financial side was handle promptly and I was aware off the charges. The procedure was less then an hour. Day of surgery the staff was very nice, professional and caring. After my procedure the nurses were very attentive of my pain and addressing any discomfort. The nurses checked on me the day after surgery and days after to check on my progress. I felt well treated and respected with this clinic. I would recommend them to anyone. I had no problems. Very professional and competent staff all around. Thank you!

I was not satisfied with the care and surgeries I received with Dr. Testa. He and Angie are very pleasant, but too busy to take a breath and explain things. The whole office seems to always be in robot mode. If I knew which questions to ask, they were answered, but they do not proactively help you to understand your options and attend to you as a patient. It was a disappointing experience and I have found another plastic surgeon.

05/2018: Within 2 days of my breast reduction I knew something was wrong. My left breast was completely black and blue and I started bleeding out at every incision point. After multiple failed attempts to drain the hematoma, I continued to bleed for over a month, causing stretching, scarring and a deformed breast. After expressing concern about the obvious disproportion of my breast, I was told that because my areola expanded, it was giving the "illusion" that one breast was larger than the other. Dr. Testa went in and resized my left areola, which expanded again within weeks. They sent me to get a CT scan and an ultra sound- that left me with hundreds of dollars in additional medical bills. This experience completely drained my self confidence, but after two years of stuffing one side of my bra and hiding my breasts, I have finally saved up enough to get it corrected by another surgeon. Maybe I am just 1 of the unlucky ones, but I thought I owed it to others to share my experience

Dr. Rita Hadley is inexperienced, incompetent, and rude I had an appointment with her for the 1st time on 07/01/20, my first impression was that she rude. She treated me as if I had the plague and barely examined me. She confirmed that I had a lump/mass on my lower left side and assured me that she had reviewed my CAT Scan from Jan, 2020, I was hesitant in allowing her to perform surgery on me but I have been in excruciating pain and still is. She performed surgery on me on 07/16/20 and it was NOT SUCCESSFUL. My left side is still protruding. I went back in to see her on 07/29/20 and it was a lengthy wait. She misdiagnosed me again stating that I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome which I've never had in my life. She decided AFTER performing surgery that she would order a CAT Scan instead of ordering one prior. I obtained a 2nd opinion from an accredited Surgeon and he confirmed my fears that the surgery had not been performed correctly and yet they are charging me for bad surgery.

Dr. Damore is the world's best surgeon! He has very successfully performed 3 surgeries on me, 1 on my husband and one on my dad! Surgery can be somewhat scary, but we have complete confidence in Dr. Damore. He gives us excellent instructions and guides us before and after the surgeries so that our recoveries have gone very well. His surgical skills have resolved our problems and brought us back to good health! He is always approachable and available for and questions! Dr. Damore is awesome!

Dr. Testa did my breast reduction March of 2020. I’m a 28 year old woman, and while it was for medical reasons, I was concerned with the appearance of my breasts afterward. I am still somewhat young, and I wanted them to look nice lol. Well I must say, Dr. Testa did AMAZING! I’m very happy with my results. It has been 4 months since my breast reduction and I’ve healed so nicely. My incisions are nice and clean and can barely be seen in some areas. During my consultation Dr. Testa informed me that the biggest thing women talk about after breast reduction surgery is the scars. He prepared me 100%, but I’ve honestly healed so well that I have NO complaints. His team is also amazing! During aftercare I was taken care of so nicely and gently. They took a personal interest and managed my pain perfectly. I want to say thank you to Dr. Testa, Angie, Sarah and Camille. I’ve now been discharged from their care and set free with my new set of breasts lol. My entire experience was incredible!!

My experience wasn’t so good! It’s been a couple of weeks and I’m still sleeping a lot. I called the office many times. The last time it took 48 hours for them to get back to me. I’m still worried this has been left so long. I’m going into office today, will update how things are handled. Makes me sad my primary dr usually recommends the best. Not sure about this one!

I am so pleased that I saw Dr. Hadley! She assessed my health situation and addressed it in a very expedited manner. I had been misdiagnosed over the past 2 years. In fact just weeks before I saw her I saw a different GI Doctor telling me there was nothing wrong with me it was all in my head. Her demeanor and disposition and the way she listened and spoke to me put me at ease immediately she gave me a sense of calm and confidence that I truly had found a dedicated professional who was clearly concerned about my wellbeing. I would recommend her to anyone for I have found her to be a caring experienced and a true professional. I am now on the road to recovery from my Gallblader problems which just weeks before I was told by another GI Doctor it’s all in my head there was nothing wrong Dr Hadley in my opinion in the Finest example of a truly top shelf professional & also my experience at Chandler regional hospital was heart warming and so professional. Thank you Dr Hadley.

Dr. Testa operated on my daughter twice in March and I must say he is a wonderful, kind and gentle surgeon......We just are so impressed with his concern and manners. I would highly consider him as your surgeon if you need to.....My daughter is medically fragile and has seen many doctors over the years...... Some are concerned and listen and some just see you and are not caring at all... NOT the case with Dr. Testa.....Also a shout out to the whole staff there at the office.....Especially Angie his surgical assistant....We certainly appreciate all of you..

Dr. Haley was a superior surgeon for my gall bladder. He was very clear about everything up front and his follow up was very good. His staff came in and also followed up with me at various points while in the hospital. I just got released and give high praises to everyone there!

I highly recommend Dr Cortesi . She has operated on me twice, once in 2016 and again 2 weeks ago. Both surgeries have been completely successful and have brought me much relief from the debilitating pain my disease inflicts. Not only has she the surgical skills to address my needs but she has also researched my rare disease to assist me in dealing with it. I don't know of many surgeons that go to that length to assist their patients especially when it could potentially reduce my need of future surgeries. Her care, compassion, concern, exceptional surgical skills and willingness to expand her knowledge for the care of her patients is beyond stellar, it is epic. Thank you Dr Cortesi for being so exceptional.

Surgery went well but After care sucked. Her nurse Olivia does not listen to your concerns. I called twice about concerns and after dealing with Olivia decided to go to the hospital. Follow-up care sucked! I went for a follow up visit 2 weeks after my surgery. My appointment was at 2pm. I was out of the office at 2:07! No instructions on what the next stage would include. Thankfully my sister had the procedure 2 yrs before me so She’s helping me. I would not recommend this Doctor if you’re looking for someone to guide you throughout the process.

Review for Dr. J Rula, MD
General Surgery
Recently, Dr. Rula, from the Advanced Surgical Associates practice in Mesa, operated on my husband. The entire experience was excellent. Dr. Rula's frank discussion about the operation and subsequent recovery eased our concerns and prepared us thoroughly. We especially appreciate Dr. Rula's easy communication; ability to answer questions clearly and succinctly; and his gentle sense of humor. The Center for Advanced Surgery in Gilbert, where William underwent surgery, is user-friendly for both patients and family members. Finally, thanks to Dr. Rula's deft surgical hand and vast experience, William's incision is healing beautifully. Two weeks out from the operation, Dr. Rula discharged William. In spite of that, and for a long time going forward, I am certain that William and I will cherish the professional bond and kindness that Dr. Rula and his staff blessed us with.
