Review of Dr. Post

-Newport News, VA |

Dr. Post has good surgical skills, however, his personality is a bit obnoxious and cocky. He also says little snide remarks that makes you feel he was a little insulting to you. I do not care for his personality. He also talks too fast and assumes you know what he is talking about.

Review of Dr. Cross

- in Newport News, VA |

Dr.Cross is not only knowledgeable but he is caring and sincere! He told me step by step what the surgery would entail and answered all of my questions! I was so comfortable with him that when my son required surgery, he was my first choice!

Review of Dr. Post

- in Hampton, VA |

I was is need for a lancing and draining of a cyst that had been getting worse. Having tried all the heat compresses, cloths, etc. for over 2 weeks I got to where I was doing nothing but crying because it hurt so bad. After finding Dr. Post on a site from Riverside, I called to see if he took walk in pts. like a Pt. First office. I found out he was a general surgeon, not a Pt. First. Even though my prob. was not an EMERGENCY, they got me in IMMEDIATELY. I'm a new pt. & give him and office an A+

Review of Dr. Cross

- in Smithfield, Virginia |

It is rare to find the combination of knowledge and exceptional bed side manner. Dr. Cross possessions each of these qualities. You can train an individual to become a doctor, however, you cannot train someone to have a good heart. You are born with that characteristic .
