I had surgery by Dr. Medich In June 2016. Previously, he saw me in his office about 2-3 times. He and his nurse, Kimberly Sainiak are both outstanding....manner, skill and knowledge. I had an issue following the surgery that was totally unrelated to how he performed his work. Kim is such a dedicated and helpful person with a true nurses heart. She was tremendous at getting me through some real trying times. She was very helpful advising me so well in properly treating the issue.

Dr. Medich deserves more than 5 stars. Outstanding physician, surgeon and person. He’s been my daughter’s surgeon since January 2017, when we were blessed to have had him there in the emergency room that evening. Our family and everyone we know that has or had him all say he’s the best and how wonderful he is. We love him.
