Forty years of hemorrhoid problems. He advised that surgery would fix it. I believe it was true. He made it clear recovery was painful. It was important to not become constipated. He was clear but did not elaborate. I now know that surgery causes swelling and swelling made it impossible to poop. The pain was excruciating! I took what seemed to be an excessive amount of laxatives, colace, miralax and fiber. Insufficient at first, then 3 days of soiling my pants. Misery. Don't do it!

Excellent skills & knowledge , very patient with me when I was very scared. Used all available resources to make the outcome of my surgery a good one. I would not hesitate to recommend him!

I arrived in the ER Dec. 2014 after a "misdiagnosis" at an urgent care facility in GA. He immediately determined I had a ruptured appendix and perforated bowel and required emergency surgery. His skills were nothing short of a miracle. He truly saved my life!
