What People Say About Dr. Christopher Willkomm, MD

Dr. Willkomm was recommended by my PCP because I didn’t know any surgeons here in Florida. I feel when I met Dr. Willkomm was one of my luckiest days. He was so personable that you really wanted to call him Chris but he was very professional. My surgery turned out to be more involved than I had expected but he handled it wonderfully. I’m doing very well currently. When I told folks who my surgeon was they all had said he’s great don’t worry, so I didn’t. My family and friend who waited after surgery for Dr. to explain how my surgery went they also were very impressed with Dr. Willkomm. All my follow visits in the hospital and office visits again I felt like I was his only patient. So if I could do anything I certainly would endorse him 100% and would be more than happy to have him do any kind of surgery that I might need in the future. So, thank you Dr. Willkomm for deciding to be a surgeon.

A good listener and a great surgeon. Dr Willkomm put me at ease with his knowledgeable and down to earth answers to my questions. I would consider it a privilege to recommend Dr Willkomm. He performed laparoscopic abdominal surgery on me and my recovery has been amazing

I just had an emergency gallbladder removal and received Dr Willkomm as my surgeon. He answered all my questions and put me at ease right away. My husband also felt I was in good hands. He was thorough but not rushed.
