Dr. Artinyan is an Angel disguised in a Doctor's body. He gave my family hope, when we were in despair. Besides the fact that he is a super talented doctor with a long list of accolades, he is extremely caring, calm, patient and responsive. He always personally called us back if we had a question for him. He drew several diagrams to illustrate what he would be doing and to answer our questions (even if we asked the same question multiple times). Lastly, his humility deserves every praise. Luckily for us my Father lived. However, I would write a very similar review if the outcome was different. May we never have to visit him under these circumstances, but if we do I will know we are in impeccable hands!!

De Artinyan operated on me when he was still in Houston and I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s excellent in every way.

DR. AVO ARTINYAN performed a surgical procedure that I had done once before with a different doctor. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. ARTINYAN. The difference was like night and day. His procedure was not as paiful as the 1st time I had my surgery. I am very PLEASED with the results and my recovery. It's still paiful but not like the my 1st surgery. Dr. Artinyan thank you very much for everything.

Dr. Artinyan was my savior during my stay at TCH after complications with my C section required observation, testing and further surgery. His patience, understanding, compassion, experience and incredible skill did not go unnoticed. He was the kindest staff member who cared for me- more compassionate that my nurses or primary physician. Dr. Artinyan jumped in and did the "dirty work" without batting an eyelash when my nurses were not able to. My husband and I could not appreciate him more.

Dr Avo Artinyan is, to put it simply, a life saver. His surgical skills, follow-up care, concern and compassion, and his general "bedside manners" are nothing short of outstanding. His knowledge of the field of cancer surgery and the associated adjuvant and neoadjuvant approaches to therapy are second to none. Having such an eminent surgeon available on phone and e-mail, is a blessing and a privilege, My regret is that we are losing him from Baylor and Houston. He is indeed a coveted prize.

Terrific, confident surgeon with a pleasant, lowkey manner, who is helping developing pioneering surgical techniques using robotics to remove the most difficult of polyps without jeopardizing the functionality of patients. If I moved out of the area and ever had to go through something like this again, I would actually consider traveling across the country to be treated by him, I have that much faith in him.
