I had a left inguinal hernia repair by Dr. Peter. There was essentially no pain. I didn't even take an aspirin. He performed robotic surgery. I traveled from Syracuse, after getting 5 surgical consults here. None were as well qualified. I'm glad that I made the trip.

Dr. Peter has an excellent bedside manner. He explains what the procedure entails and answers any questions you ask, in a manner that you can understand. I would, and have, recommended him to someone else.
