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.

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
