Dr. Andrews and his team are excellent. They helped me through the worst time of my life. His staff are all excellent. I owe much gratitude to him and the entire team. Such a flawless experience. Thank you again Dr. Andrews!!
in Berlin, NJ |
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!!!!!!
