I called his office soon as i got out of the er wednesday lady informed me office visits are m-w surgery t-f made appt for monday. They scheduled me for surgery Thursday. I had surgery yesterday he told my wife my hernia was bigger than expected and no wonder he was hurting so bad (baseball size). He gave me a pain pump with numbing stuff. Got home yesterday stifd but 0 pain. Today day after stiff and very little pain. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

After years of going to different doctors and not getting answers to my problem, Dr. Kabithe was able tof correctly diagnose the problem that I had been suffering from for years! Now I'm on my way to a healthier life...Awesome doctor!!!!

I was really impressed with him. I went in with a cyst and pain on wed and he performed surgery on me the next day. I could not have asked for a better or more nice and understanding surgeon. He also has an excellent nurse Cricket they are both great at there jobs and caring for patients

He did 8 surgery on me and still having problems with the first place a yr later. He is one of the worse doctor's I seen.

Dr. Kabithe was extremely knowledgeable about my husband's condition. In addition to his professionalism and skill, he was also very personable and caring. It's refreshing to have a surgeon who has exceptional skill and a personality to match! I'd highly recommend him!

I have been having some medical issues and my doctor referred me to this very rude and poor excuse for a doctor. He did not even examine me. I told him my problems and he basically told me to just get over it. I would never recommend going to this uncaring doctor.
As a surgeon I am only able to treat problems that can be resolved with a surgical intervention, not medical problems. I always examine my patients and if I cannot provide a solution, I refer my patients back to their primary care provider or to the appropriate specialist.
in Hopkinsville, KY |
Because he took the time out to find out what was wrong when no other doctor would I'm glad that my family doctor refer me to him

Listens to your questions and concerns, explains things so you understand, amazing bedside manners. Just an all around great Dr.
