Thank you so much to Dr kooby and staff for taking care of me, making me feel more relaxed and not as scared about having surgery. The skills and knowledge Dr kooby and staff have are amazing!
in Duluth, GA |
I was told by my dr that I had a mass in my pancreas. He also told me that he took it upon himself to call a surgical oncologist that he highly respected....Dr. Kooby....and that his office would be calling me. I wanted to go to MD Anderson, but I was too sick to travel so we decided to meet with Dr. Kooby. My family did research on Dr. Kooby and felt this was the right surgeon for me. The Whipple was done perfectly and my recovery was remarkable. Dr. K is a truly gifted surgeon & great guy
