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.
Dr. Maruyama was very professional, very thorough, and very kind. I would highly recommend him as a surgeon.
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.
Great doctor. Had my surgery a week ago. Loved the office staff. They are all very nice and welcoming. Love that the doctor answers all my questions and doesn't rush you.
Immediate access, quick & accurate diagnosis, and an informative discussion on surgical options. Great follow up, and I am well on my way to recovery!
Great Dr. explained everything about surgery. Did surgery and everything went as planned. would highly recommend to everyone. New office with great staff and on time.
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
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.
Dr Maruyama is an excellent Dr. He is informative and very honest. I was very pleased with my care and surgery. I would recommend him to family and friends.
I am glad that my primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Maruyama for a hernia problem. The doctor is well experienced with the hernia procedure which allayed my concerns. His treatment of his patients and follow through are excellent. The procedure was done at the outpatient center of Clovis Medical Center – another good experience!
This was my first surgical procedure and I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with all aspects. Dr. Maruyama is an excellent doctor very friendly and compassionate. Thank you very much Doc
Caring,to the point,very professional. Put me at ease facing surgery can be stressful. Would not hesitate recommending Dr. Maruyama to family or friends.
Very posive, and obviously knowledgeable. With the aid of a CT, Dr. Muruyama let me know exactly what and when would transpire. Overyall, the experience was great. Any/all questions were answered.I would not hesitate seeing Dr. Maruyama again.
I wish all doctors offices were this efficient, never waited more than a few minutes and the doctor and staff were professional, polite and friendly.
Dr. Maruyama is the best! I was concerned that I had it put surgery off too long and as a result the situation increased. Dr. Maruyama put my concerns and ease and was VERY thorough. The procedure went exactly as planned and I was very happy. He wanted to see me for a few post-surgical visits to make sure I was healing properly and there was no infection. I am so happy that surgery is behind me and that I had such a great surgeon! My only suggestion is to improve the after-hours call service.
Dr. Maruyama performed hernia surgery on me and I can't believe how quickly I recovered. I was surprised and pleased that I had three follow up visits after surgery.
Very prompt with all appointments. He explained everything well. I have had no problems with my recent hernia surgery.
I was referred to Dr. Maruyama to have my gallbladder removed. Dr. Maruyama was very thorough in explaining everything about this procedure. He is excellent at what he does and I would recommend him to everyone. Staff was very friendly. I was in & out of the office within 30-40 minutes of arriving at all 3 appointments.
I had my gallbladder removed. I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Maruyama. Virtually no waiting on the office visits, and surgery went very smoothly at a nice hospital facility in Clovis. He is an excellent surgeon.
I?ve never been operated on before so this was my first experience. I must say there was a lot of anxiety prior to my hernia procedure. However, the experience prior, during, and post operation was amazing. My pain level never exceeded a 4 (out of 10). In fact, aside for the first 24 hours, I didn?t need my pain medicine other than ibuprofen. I fully recovered after 2 weeks. Dr. Maruyama made me feel comfortable, confident and reassured that the procedure will go some. Would highly recommend him
Dr. Martin is in my opinion the finest example of a doctor and young man I have had the pleasure of being a patient of. Listened to my concerns and situation and acted very quickly resolve my situation. I will highly recommend him to anyone based on my case and surgery results. Amazing is all areas of his practice. Very grateful to have met him.
I have been going to Dr. Maruyama for over 30 years. I trust him completely. He orders appropriate tests before he recommends surgery. He will answer all your questions, if you ask. His bedside manner alleviates your fears. Yes, sometimes he does seem to be in a hurry, but I have found that if you ask questions, he will stay with you until you and he are comfortable with his answers. He is an excellent surgeon. I wish I could clone him as my Primary Care Physician.
He removed my gallbladder. Did a quick, good job with a short recovery period. He does a good job explaining the procedure and all the risks involved. The office staff there is very helpful. My only complaint would be the use of staples as opposed to dissoluble stitches on the incisions. He seems friendly, but definitely has the surgeons demeanor of being a little rushed, but don't they all?
Great to talk to- personable, answered my questions, and put me at ease. He operated on my son and he is doing wonderfully.
Dr. Holmes explains everything in detail. He has a fantastic bedside manner. He really put me at ease. I am recommending my friends and family if they need a surgeon.
I was nervous about the outcome of my surgery scheduled with Dr. Martin. He made myself and my family feel very informed and comfortable from the minute we spoke with him. He answered all our questions and insured that it would be taken care of in the most positive and expedient way. After the surgery there was absolutely no pain to encounter and the incision healed without any problem. The pathology report also came back negative. We would definitely return to Dr. Martin -excellent surgeon!!
I was referred to him in 2016 but unfortunately I did not have insurance. IWe finally were able to get insurance and I called Dr. Martin and staff scheduled me quickly. I met with him and he had such a positive professionalism about him. Scheduled surgery quickly and did a beautiful low pain job. I feel this young man is going to be an Angel of many people to come. It's been 1 week Robotic laptop-sigmoidectomy and I feel good already. I highly recommend him!
