Would like to express my thanks and gratitude to Dr Tuai for his professionalism, skill and demeanor in performing robotic surgery to repair my stomach hernia. My hernia was fairly large and it required a TARS procedure to correct it. The surgery was 5/6 hours long and was very successful. I thought I would be in considerable pain for at least a few days but to my astonishment my pain was way less than anticipated. Other than lifting I was back to my long walks and normal activities in 3 or 4 days! Stomach looks great. Highly recommend Dr. Tuai for any surgery you might be considering.

I found Dr Tuai to be compassionate and very attentive. He took the time to fully explain my options and did not try to push me into surgery. It did take several days to get an appointment. After leaving two messages over three days with the scheduling staff and no return call, I tried a third time and the receptionist was able to patch me into them directly.
