It has been 5 years since Dr. Carey Aarons performed my extremely successful surgery. If not for Dr. Aarons, I would still have a colostomy bag. I thank God for Dr. Aarons every day. I believe in God and Dr. Carey Aarons. He is the Best of the Best and is a talented genius who I will always remember and forever be grateful for.

I had surgery this past summer 2018 by Dr. Aarons and found him to be a wonderful, caring surgeon - can't say enough positive things about him! However, because he is at HUP he has no say over what staff gets assigned to him and this is a problem. The worst Physician Assistant I ever met works for him (think self-absorbed, immature, inept Millenial) and I found one of his residents to be horrible (again, another idiot Millenial). I won't go back to his practice again if I have to deal with them

Dr. Aarons is a great surgeon with a calming and confident bedside manner. He got me through two major abdominal surgeries and I highly recommend him.
