Very happy with entire process for hernia repair. Doctor his the fact that maybe my hernia wasn’t as bad as I thought but understood my fear of having it to begin with and fixing the problem. I’m very happy with the recovery too, I was able to walk out of the surgery center to the car.

Before I found Steve I went to a few other doctors and no one compares to him. I instantly felt comfortable around him and the staff and havent met a doctor that cared as much as he did.

It wasn’t pleasant. He was very condescending and wouldn’t listen to me. I asked one question and then he accused me of not wanting to be there. I get it he was behind schedule, but that behavior is ridiculous. I was there seeking treatment and all he did was yell at me.
