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.

From the beginning, Dr Fierer showed a rare level of caring. He operated on me dec 18 for colon cancer, and am now.. cancer- free. He was concerned and gave me great info all through the pre-op, day of op and post- op processes. Would go back anytime to him!

About Me

Care Philosophy

I realize that surgery, even a "minor" one, can cause anxiety, disrupt one's life, and create many questions. I will try to make the process as smooth as possible and the outcome positive.
