I can’t say enough about how warm and friendly Dr Joe and the team are. I was scared to meet them, let alone discuss surgery because I was terrified of being judged. After I met this amazing team and their sweet office dog Marty, I felt relaxed and left happy and excited for my future is going to bright and I will not be living life on the sidelines any more.

Nicest Surgeon who cares for patients
Never met a doctor in my life, let alone a surgeon, who care more about a patient and their family then Dr. Joe. He is kind, knowledgeable and always included my family during our visits and patiently answered everyones questions. We are Mexican and we do everything as a family and he took care of us like we were his family. The surgery went smoothly and could not be happier with my healthy new life. Thank you for everything.

I had hernia surgery July 7th. Dr. Cribbins did an amazing job! After surgery, pain was at a minimal and I was able to walk around the house, with assistance. Here I am 4 days later and I feel fine. I am very appreciative for Dr. Cribbins and his team! During surgery, Dr. Cribbins found another hernia, that I was unaware of. Thank God for him.

My post-op care was horrible. I spoke with him once but could not get a return call to explain CT results while having complications, fever, shoulder pain, weakness and difficulty breathing. I ended up with blood clots and possible infection in my lungs which other physicians had to figure out in two different ERs and are still trying to fix. At 2 weeks post op I was told "well you are out of the danger zone, it's just going to take your body longer before it feels normal." This was at 3 weeks post-op. Be careful and be sure to ask about post-op care and protocol so you are aware. Also, listen to your body, no one knows it better than you. If I hadn't listened to my body I could be dead.

Friday hernia surgery....walked out of hospital without the help of a wheelchair. Was an absolute great surgery. Was eating Saturday morning and walking around the house. Dr. Cribbins is great, made me feel comfortable and relaxed before the operation. He has a great staff as well. Thanks to them all. Keep up the good work doc we need good people like you.

Office staff seem friendly enough. Able to get appointments scheduled as needed. Had Gastric sleeve surgery and don’t feel it is successful. I feel like the ‘pouch’ is large. I have no restriction and can consume 24 ounce protein shake withougt issue. Asked Dr. Cribbins to do a swallow to view the pouch and he said it isn’t necessary. I need to follow the diet. If I had to live being hungry and follow a liquid diet, why did i spend thousands of dollars for tool that isn’t working?
