Dr. Eichten had the patience and understanding to wait for me to ask for the reverse shoulder replacement. He did a fantastic job. I need my other shoulder done. Not going to wait long for him to decide to operate on that one. Thank you Dr. Eichten and your staff IH and In office.

Dr Abou Lahoud was great throughout the whole procedure to repair my hiatal hernia. I found him to be honest, thorough and helpful and took the time to answer all questions I had. I would not hesitate to refer him to people or to go to him for any other procedures needed.

Dr. Sweet is brilliant. He was able to diagnose an issue my regular gyno was unable to, but also found other fertility issues that hadn't been addressed before. He basically saved my fighting chance at having kids before it was too late!

Came to Dr Humbert for a second opinion for my hip replacement. After x/rays and an informative conversation, it was decided that I proceed with a hip injection. Not a hurry up and do surgery. Very happy I came to Dr Humbert and if and when surgery is recommended, he’s my choice.

Dr. MacGuidwin is an amazing doctor. She recognized that I may have an auto-immune disease, immediately requested a particular blood test. When it was positive, she called me to tell me and recommended a Rhumatologist that she works with. I wouldn't change doctors for anything!
