Review of Dr. Boustany


I saw Dr. Boustany for a surgical consult and thought he was awesome. But when it came time to schedule, I had a very difficult time with his assistant who seemed to take a dislike to me without even meeting me. She made it impossible for me to schedule and had no consideration about my situation. She scheduled me a month and a half out and refused to put me on a waitlist, saying this was reserved only for cancer patients. WHAT? Ended up going elsewhere.

Review of Dr. Gould


I met with Dr Gould concerning a new diagnosis and a need for surgery. He provided information concerning my diagnosis, what to expect concerning labs, testing and hospitalization that would be required before and /or after the surgery. He explained everything that I needed to know concerning my upcoming procedure. He displayed knowledge, passion and professionalism of and for his profession the entire visit. Looking forward to a great outcome with my upcoming surgery.

Review of Dr. Marchigiani

- in Virginia Beach, VA |

Dr. Marchigiani removed 22% of my Mom's lung. He was incredibly descriptive on his approach during surgery, completed a successful surgery and then was honest but reassuring during recovery. He gave my family tremendous peace with his knowledge and experience. I can't thank him enough for all he has done for my Mom.

Review of Dr. Boustany

-Norfolk, VA |

I suddenly had to have an emergency surgery and Dr. Boustany not only squeezed me into a busy day but did an outstanding job and also gave me a lot of time and patience afterwards. He checked in on me daily, had me to his office for a followup and was generally an outstanding surgeon in every way. Highly recommend.

Review of Dr. Reed

-Virginia Beach, VA |

I cannot say enough about Dr Reed. I met he after getting horrible, scary news. I left her office with such a sense of peace. She made me feel like I was in the best hands possible and it turns out I was. She is straightforward and real. A truly gifted surgeon

Review of Dr. Schneider

- in Virginia Beach, VA |

Dr. Schneider did an emergency appendectomy on me last month. He was outstanding. The appendix was really bad -- perforated and gangrenous -- so abscesses developed. I was in the hospital for 11 days, and he and his associates visited me several times per day and took outstanding care of me. He always explained everything clearly and fully to me and my husband, and he was super nice and professional as well. We were both very favorably impressed and so grateful to him for "fixing" me.
