Review for Dr. Schlaerth

He is the best surgeon in town, very kind, well mannered, very trustworthy and very competent. He walked me through with my surgery and its progress to healing. All his staff were also kind and helpful.

Both myself and my eldest daughter have nothing but positive feedback in our interactions with Dr. Mansour. He listens attentively and puts forth his best efforts at achieving patient comfort & satisfaction. I wish I would have encountered him years ago!
