Intelligent and compassionate man. His demeanor was confidence inspiring and professional. I would recommend him to anyone in the Boulder, CO area who needs a surgeon.
in Louisville Colorado |
He's very educated and knows his field of work. He's done two of my surgeries and without using radiation to find the cause of the problem, he found the problem with symptoms explained. It's very evident that he has experience in the medical field and I would trust only this surgeon with any surgery. I still have some abdominal issues but he has fixed the ones that he specializes in and more thus far. He has removed my appendix my gallbladder and fixed my bilateral hernia. He's a five-star!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
