Dr. Godbe is a great surgeon. He is to the point and a matter of fact doctor.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to David Godbe! We are always more than happy to assist you if anything else comes up. Take care!

My internist diagnosed my having an inguinal hernia in Sept 2015, and I decided to contact Dr Godbe for treatment options due to his experience and the fact that he is a board-certified MD. Dr Godbe confirmed the hernia diagnosis in Nov 2015 and I had corrective surgery in January 2016. Followup with Dr Godbe in early February was straightforward with no prolapse.
