This Man is amazing, he removed my gallbladder and I have not had ANY issues, I was terrified about having it removed, but he put my mind at ease and after all said and done, I am thankful for the referral to him. I would recommend him to the world!!

Dr. Rader is an excellent surgeon. He has wonderful bedside manner. He not only did my gallbladder surgery but also did my mom's double mastectomy 10 years ago. He thoroughly explains your procedure and recovery process and answers any questions or addresses any concerns you have thoroughly. ...more
