Phenomenal Dr with less invasive incisions from my experience. I knew others who had similar surgery, but different dr and I was impressed with how small & precise my scars were compared to others and that alone was impressive. Highly recommend. Caring, informative, precise with knowledgeable expertise. I requested this dr for a separate issue years later for different issue due to the fact I trust him, his skills & knowledge.

Spent A LOT of time answering my questions, explaining the surgical procedure I will be having. Never seemed to be rushed. Very compassionate toward my concerns and fear of having major surgery for the first time. Has definitely built up my trust in him.
