Dr. Rather is an excellent surgeon. Both my colostomy and reversal were complicated by adhesions. He was up to the task. His follow-up care was excellent.

Dr. Rather is an excellent surgeon. He took his time explaining everything I needed to know prior to surgery. Explained worst and best case scenario‘s. He took his time during surgery and afterwards explained to me and family members everything that had been done. His follow-up care at the hospital was excellent.

Dr. Rather was recommended to us by the Oncologist my wife was seeing due to a diagnosis of a large malignant tumor in her lower intestine. Dr. Rather was very pleasant and described fully the procedure he would be using, and was very reassuring that he would do his up most to help resolve the problem if it was in his power. After the surgery he explained that because of the size and location of the tumor that he could not remove it surgically and that kemo might be a possibility.
