We highly recommend Dr. Armstrong. He is knowledgeable and compassionate. Our experience is that these two qualities rarely occur in the same doctor these days. The procedure he performed was a hemmorhoidectomy. Thanks to Dr. Armstrong, I am finally out of pain after visiting several other doctors that did not take my pain or condition seriously. I can't thank Dr. Armstrong enough for giving my life back to me. I know he was "just doing his job" but the fact that things went smoothly and he was so kind is immeasurably valuable!

I am a 2 time cancer survivor thanks to Dr. Armstrong. I have had around 6 operations performed by Dr. Armstrong all due to the complexity of my diagnoses. They have ranged from colon resections, tumor removal, J pouch and a hernia repair. For every procedure everything was explained in great detail and every question answered to my satisfaction. I also have Lynch Syndrome which makes my predisposed to getting certain types of cancers. Most of my family members do not make it longer than 2 years after first diagnosed. I am on my 4th year and I believe it is due to his expertise. I will always return to Dr. Armstrong with anything that arises in my future.

I was recommended to Dr. Armstrong by my primary care physician and also by several business associates that have used him. I found him to be the most down to earth, dare I say, normal doctor I have ever seen or been around. He didn't waste my time and valued what I wanted to have done without any ego. A most pleasurable experience

I was diagnosed with colon cancer on a Wednesday and Dr. Armstrong removed the cancerous portion of my colon the following Tuesday. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Armstrong because he met with me in his office after the exam to explain the entire procedure to me. My surgery was a success and I never felt rushed during any of the hospital or follow up visits. I am very satisfied with the results and no complications. The staff was very professional and submitted paperwork promptly.

I would recommend that you avoid this Dr. at any cost. He is curt and short to the point of being rude and disrespectful. I was willing to overlook this, hoping he was a better surgeon than his personality indicated. I had three hemorrhoids and saw Dr. Armstrong to remove all three. During the operation he choose to remove only two. 18 months later I am going through a very difficult hemorrhoidectomy again to remove the 3rd hemorrhoid that he left behind. Please, stay away!

I first met Dr. Armstrong in the hospital. After meeting with him during our initial consultation, I was immediately impressed with his positive demeanor, personality and his ability to make me feel comfortable. His bedside manner is outstanding. I am so appreciative of his knowledge and expertise. He is very well read and notably accomplished. His compassionate and caring nature far surpasses that of any physician I've encountered thus far. His office staff is very friendly and professional.

I did not know of Dr. Armstrong before I had lower abdominal surgery. My urologist referred me to him , and I could not be more happy. Dr. Armstrong is upbeat, positive, and very skilled. His supporting staff was very helpful in telling me what to expect. Surgery is not fun ...... but one is in good hands with Dr. Armstrong.
