Review for Dr. Anucha

I’m not sure how this doctor got a negative review. He is one of the kindest and most thorough surgeons I’ve come across. He took his time explaining everything to me and made sure I understood everything. Best surgeon. So glad I found him.

Review for Dr. Jain

Completely rude, unprofessional and uncaring toward your symptoms. He will spend more time defending his prognosis than discussing your best treatment. Do not waste your money here
