Review of Dr. Solh

-Hemlock, MI |

After two misdiagnosis from gastroenterologists, Dr. Solh finally gave me a diagnosis for all my years of suffering. Great bedside manner, and very thorough. Highly recommend him and Dr. Shaheen!

Review of Dr. Solh


My first experience with Dr. Solh was 7 years ago. He saved my life! I had 5 bowel constrictures an open wound from a previous botched surgery, fissures, the works. I have had issues since then, the most current one month ago. I refuse to talk to any other doctors/surgeons but him. He got me better once more. I adore this man, his communication with me; could not ask for more in a physician!

Review of Dr. Solh

- in Gladwin, AL |

He saved my life in 2014. Gave up his labor day weekend and operated on me with colon cancer which has moved to my appendix. He is great. Bright,compassionate and totally buttoned up. I'm alive because my pal Jerry Schell sent me there.

Review of Dr. Hackett

- in Saginaw, MI |

TERRIBLE SURGEON!! Even my family doctor AND internal medicine doctor, said he DID A VERY BAD JOB!!! Had to have breast tissue removed, and it wasnt until after the surgery, that I found out general surgeons arnt normally suppose to do liposuction. That didnt stop Tim Hackett. Now my chest is concave, nipples are crooked, and I'm scarred for life. I wonder these days, why would you even put your faith in a general surgeon, when there are specialists out there for every condition you could ever h

Review of Dr. Solh


Words can't describe the gratitude that my siblings and I have for Dr. Sohl. He was absolutely amazing with my mother and she is on the road to recovery. Thank you from the Casey family!

Review of Dr. Paulus

-Saginaw, MI |

Long wait times are to be expected with a specialist. Anyone can understand that it is very difficult to predict how much time each patient will need and schedule accordingly. Dr. Paulus is never in a rush while in the exam room, she is always patient and willing to answer all of our questions. She is very good at explaining and uses examples that lay people can understand. Very pleased with my mothers care so when husband needed surgery she was our first choice.

Review of Dr. Solh

- in Prudenville, MI |

This is what Dr. Sohl performed on me, colon resection, colostomy takedown, abdominal wall reconstruction, and 5 hernia repairs. He is a very "to the point" physician and some times a little frosty but still very caring and an incredibly knowledgably and talented surgeon! So who would you rather have operating on you, someone who you can trust with your health and wellbeing or someone friendly?
