Doctor Haddad performed surgery on my wife. He is the best in my opinion. He is very caring and kind. He takes time with you and follows up. He always has a smile on his face and before you leave his office, you will have a smile on your face too. He is a wonderful gift to Bloomington, Indiana.

Never use Paul Johnson Extremely poor bedside manner. Very poor work that had to be corrected by another surgeon. Dr. Johnson acknowledged his poor work and offered to have us come back and he would fix it, charging us again. We said no. Don’t trust this doctor.
