Patient Comments (4)
in Visalia, CA |
On 07/19/2017, Doctor operated me, but I perceive that He did not put one handred percent in my surgery. After the surgery, I saw a small table with a pair of scissors and pieces of flesh from my operated part. I did not saw bisturíes or blades on the table. Dr. Could deliberately removed this part of my body, which is necessary for the daily life. Now I feel sad embarrassed and frustrated. I asked Dr. Meshesha if he could do something and he said no. Dr. Abiy Meshesha is Very Respectful.

I've never had surgery so I didn't know what to expect, from the initial consult, the OR and recovery. Dr Meshesha was honest, straightforward and showed genuine compassion and concern. Excellent bedside manner. My bilateral Inguinal hernia repair w/mesh could not have gone better and pain and discomfort have been far less than I'd hoped, or imagined. I'm a first-timer and I highly recommend Dr Meshesha to friends and family alike. His office staff continues to be helpful and professional.
