Review of Dr. Gardikas
in Fresno, CA |
Dr. Gardikas is an excellent surgeon, she truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to answer all your questions, and even if you think it's a dumb question, she doesn't. She talks with you like one person to another, never condescending, makes you feel important and human. If the need should arise again that I need another surgery, I am seeking her first. I think Fresno/Clovis is fortunate to have such a skilled and kind doctor as Dr. Gardikas.

Review of Dr. Maruyama
Fresno, CA |
Dr. Maruyama did a fantastic job repairing my inguinal hernia. I like that he is a bit old fashioned. He actually sees his patients, not using a PA for all the office visits. He has many years of experience and has performed hundreds, if not thousands of Hernia Procedures. I have had no problems whatsoever since the surgery. Highly recommended!

Dr. Maruyama is one of the most competent doctors I have ever met. He has deep concern for his patients and takes the time to fully explain the procedure he is about to perform. I have complete confidence in his ability to operate on me and would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Review of Dr. Maruyama
in Big Creek, CA |
Valley Sugical Specilist mailed me a notice tgat they scheduled an appt for me on 10/31 and I could not make that appt. when I calle to schedule an appt I could make thececeptionist was condenscending and rude but I was able to schedule an 11/11 appointment at 8:15 AM. When I arrived at the office after driving 90 minutes to the appointment I was told the Dr was not in th office and I did not get to see a physician. Very disappointing experience and I will never go back. No respect for patients

Review of Dr. Maruyama
in Fresno Ca |
Dr Maruyama was an excellent surgeon. He repaired two large hernias, while having to go under a C-section scar. After healing, I can hardly tell the new incisions were made. Very good communication. Answered all of my questions.
