He conducted a laparoscopic double hernia surgery back in November 2017. From the time he diagnosed my issue to the time I went into surgery was very quick, and the surgery was performed without any issues. I healed up within a week and have a very small scar. I really enjoyed working with this Doctor and his team. Everyone was professional and fun to work with

He conducted a laparoscopic triple hernia surgery three years ago - recovered in 3-4 days - no complications - no issues - no real pain; no complications or problems three years later - that's what counts. (yes - he was late to the surgery...get an alarm clock man...)

Doesn't take his job seriously. He's a joke. He was an hour late for my surgery then referred me to a dermatologist for laser hair removal stating it would be covered by my insurance. I got to the derm referral for them to think I was there for hair loss and they don't even perform the service I went there for and IS NOT covered by insurance. JOKE!
