Did my thyroid surgery and did a great job
in Columbia, SC |
For a woman of 72 years who has never had surgery I was stressed and overwhelmed. But when I met Dr. Terris and his team I immediately knew I was in good hands and my well being and comfortably was their main focus. As previous patients stated he has wonderful bedside manner and it is obvious he has the expertise. He gave my husband his cell number and called him when the surgery was completed. He checked up on me with a couple of days and call directly with the results of a biopsy.
