Dr. Day is professional and kind. She provided a thorough explanation of my gallbladder removal procedure and dew a picture to accompany her explanation. She patiently answered all of my questions and was warmly reassuring before I went into surgery. She made me feel at ease and truly cares about her patients. I would recommend Dr. Day to my family and friends if they needed surgery.

Dr Day was late to our first appointment with her - like late as I’m not even at the facility well after our scheduled appnt time. She came in for about 10 min, suggested surgery, performed the surgery and my daughter’s issue is not only still there, but has multiplied tremendously!! Will definitely never return or recommend this provider to anyone!
