Personality of a dead fish... Did not like questions. Did not explain procedures. Did not elaborate on results, except, “I’m done.”

Dr. Phillips is an EXCELLENT surgeon. I in fact, requested Dr. Phillips for my recent surgery. He had operated on my husband over 30 years ago, and I trusted him implicitly. I was up and around the very same day as my gallbladder surgery. Albeit slowly... but without the soreness I had anticipated. That is a good surgeon ! He has a great sense of humor. Lacks the ego of a GREAT surgeon. Listens to the problem, and and deals with it. I would trust him with my children and anyone I know.

I have (and would again) trust this man with my life - without any hesitation whatsoever. Dr. Phillips is not only very professional, but also very caring, and pleasant to be around (he's got a great sense of humor!)

Awfull experience ! Wife told them she has a bad allergic reaction to certain stiches, they used them anyway. Neck got infected and puss and blood was coming out after 4 weeks,After 1 week she was told her neck was fine, was not until the fourth week that he realized that the stitches were in fact having a reaction, so he scraped them out and put different ones in. This time he left a quarter inch gap on her for (drainage)? One week later a stich popped now she has a 3/4 inch hole on neck... sad

Dr. Phillips was recommended by some friends I trust, My procedure was minor and the outcome after the surgery was excellent. I even have trouble finding the place where he stitched me back together...he did such a good job. I had one question a few days down the road after the procedure and he answered the call himself after hours. I feel he genuinely cares about what he does.

I work as an nurse and as I should do i tried to ask Dr Phillips questions about the possible surgery and options. He responded by cutting me off and not answering any of them. He was abrupt and as he walk out he stated you will be back and stormed out. Horrible..
