Patient Comments (4)
Cleveland, OH |
absolutely one of the worst surgions, he would rather cut into someone blindly than to do an mri to determine whats going on. he was rude, spoke to us like we didn't have a right to know, was easily agitated when we questioned why he would just cut into someone and when we asked what he is calling the problem he offered no diagnosis and was very rough.

Nobody wants to have to see a proctologist. Dr. Valerian is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him without any reservation.

Can't say enough wonderful things about him. Compassionate, professional, would highly recommend him along w/ Dr. Wm Lee. I consider him a friend along w/ Dr. Wm. Lee. Can't go wrong w/ either of them!
