Dr. Dwyer performed a Robotic Sigmoidectomy on me and I cant't be more pleased with the results. Dr. Dwyer's attention to pain comfort after the procedure was very comforting as the post operation pain was at a minimal. After my discharge from MCA I received a call from Dr. Dwyers office assuming that it was a member of his staff checking on my condition but it actually was Dr. Dwyer himself making that call. I was very impressed that he took the time out of his day to make that call.

Dr, Dwyer is an outstanding Surgeon and person. He's very passionate about his patients and his work. I met him after an emergency room visit where my daughter had a partial obstruction he reassured my daughter and I that he was fully committed to making sure we understood the process every step of the way which he did. I prayed that God would send the medical professionals that would help my daughter I know he sent Dr Dwyer and for that I give thanks. I highly recommend Dr Dwyer and his staff.

After years of surgeries I had almost given up hope that my condition would get any better when I was referred to Dr. Dwyer by my PCP (Primary Care Physician). On my first visit, his assistants Nina and Sarah excelled in providing exceptional customer service. Dr. Dwyer has a compassion for his profession. I have never had a doctor who would take time away from their schedule to call and discuss in detail diagnosis/treatment plans. It is comforting to know that I am finally in very good hands.

We went to Dr. Dwyer for a second opinion. We found him very knowledgeable and put us at ease. After getting a third opinion we actually chose Dr. Dwyer to do the surgery. He did an awesome job. My husband's recovery was days ahead of predicated and Dr. Dwyer put my entire family at ease. He took time to explain things so we all understood. Dr. Dwyer takes the time to return all calls regardless day or time, even holidays. I whole heartily recommend him to all needing rectal/colon surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Dwyer by my primary care doctor. Him and his staff are amazing and very helpful. He was thorough, a bit humorous, and made me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I would highly recommend him.

My colon surgery went the best it could possibly go. Doctor Dwyer explained everything up front, he tried to ease my concerns with professionalism and a great sense of humor. Sarah took care of all my insurance paperwork without any trouble. I feel like I made two new friends and I would recommend Doctor Dwyer to everyone.

Dr. Dwyer is wonderful. He has an excellent bedside manner and is hilarious. Dr. Dwyer listened to my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the fact that I had a previous cancer experience at 33. Luckily for me, Colon cancer won’t make that list anytime soon because he took immediate action by performing a colonoscopy and removing a pre-cancerous polyp (at age 36!). I have been fortunate to have incredible doctors who listen to me and he is now part of that special group of very few.

Dr. Dwyer immediately put me at ease, never once made me feel rushed, and was very thorough and attentive. It's rare to find doctors like that these days, and I'm very thankful I did!

I was referred to Dr. Dwyer by my doctor to check on the treatment of what I believed to be hemoroids. I was very apprehensive about the visit. Dr. Dwyer was quick to put me at ease. He took all the time he needed to explain how he was going to conduct his examination. The exam was totally painless and it was done in less than 5 minutes. He diagnosed the problem, applied some medication and then explained in detail what I needed to do. Great visit and an AWESOME doctor. 100 % satisfied !!

After being diagnosed with colon cancer I was referred to Dr. Dwyer. He explained my procedure in great detail as well as sketched out what he was going to do. He patiently answered all of my questions and provided me with a list of information to assist with my recovery. The comfort and ease at which he made my family and I feel was so powerfully needed. Dr. Dwyer is a wonderful and dedicated surgeon and I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Thank you Dr. Dwyer

I would highly recommend Dr. Dwyer to anyone. I have severe anxiety when it comes to going to a new doctor but he was so pleasant and professional the anxiety quickly disappeared. He performed my first ever colonoscopy along with a minor surgical procedure. Both were performed quickly and I experienced much less pain than anticipated. Office visits are fast yet thorough, he will spend as much time as necessary to answer questions/concerns. His office staff is very friendly and professional!
