Review of Dr. Hadley


Not really impressed. Decent surgeon, I suppose but follow up care was non-existant.

Review of Dr. Buckmire

- in Chandler, AZ |

Dr. .Buckmire was very informative and set my mind at ease regarding surgery. He is most comforting. I highly recommend him. Glad I found him and will return if ever necessary. We need more doctors like him.

Review of Dr. Kumar

-none |

Dr. Kumar evaluated my father's inguinal hernia and determined it could be repaired easily with surgery. She was thorough in making sure he was fit for surgery and then did a fine job of performing that surgery. The procedure went exactly as she said it would and his recovery was, surprisingly, pain free and quick. He didn't even need to take any of the pain medication post-surgery. I would recommend Dr. Kumar for surgery and would go to her myself.

Review of Dr. Masur

-Scottsdale, AZ |

My first appt nothing happened since we didn't know what my insurance would pick up. I still had to pay my $65 co-pay. I asked Dr. Masur directly if I would have to pay it on my actual procedure date scheduled out. He assured me I would NOT have to. I was still billed another co-pay, called the office and collection department which fell on deaf ears even after appealing this. They're crooks and liars. Don't trust them.

Review of Dr. Masur

-Tempe, AZ |

Found Dr Masur and Advanced Surgical Associates after a poor experience with another surgeon (insurance and scheduling). The office was on top of everything, and Dr Masur was top notch. He answered questions, explained everything, and performed a perfect surgery. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Review of Dr. Buckmire

- in Phoenix, AZ |

After going through breast cancer and having every procedure you can imagine, i had a colon problem and was referred to Dr. Buckmire. He was excellent before and after my surgery and I would certainly recommend him to all. His PA is also very good and took very good care of all my needs.

Review of Dr. Runfola

- in Gilbert, AZ |

Dr. Runfola has provided me with the information and confidence needed to address the surgery to remove my existing malignant melanoma. Plus he has performed the surgery necessary for biopsies on lymph nodes for further testing. He is a very warm and caring individual who sets your mind at ease for the procedures he will perform. Thank you.

Review of Dr. Buckmire

-AR, AZ |

My son was referred to Dr. Buckmire with a fairly large mass in his colon. Dr. Buckmire was excellent in communicating the facts and what to expect prior to during and after the surgery. His medical and administrative staff was also very professional which allowed him to spend the maximum time possible focusing on his patients. My son was one of the youngest colon cancer patients. Dr. Buckmire was diligent in making surgical and medical decisions that would impact my son’s life and overall heal
