      Dr. Andrews is very compassionate and kind. He is also an amazing surgeon. He removed my tumor a few months ago and helped give me my life back. His staff is professional, caring and talented. Amazing care at Jefferson. I recommend him highly.

      Dr Andrews approx 9 yrs ago did brain surgery on me, for Trigeminal Neuralgia. Although his bedside manner is a little dry(if you need a little more coddling he is not the surgeon for you), that wasn't important to me. I wanted 2 good skilled hands, that's what I got!!! My pain was called the "suicidal syndrome", IT WAS GONE!! I have total gratitude toward Dr Andrew, & I am very grateful he was my surgeon!!!!!!
