Review for Dr. Nyamu

Dr Cihak was an excellent Dr! He performed my parotidectomy and was careful to explain everything in detail and the options. I had total confidence in him as a surgeon and was not disappointed. Highly recommend!

Dr. Masada was very receptive to my needs and worries, and we spoke about about them during the appointment. He’s a very caring doctor compared to the doctors they replaced him with
