Patient Comments (3)
in Vero Beach, FL |
Dr. Paul fit me in to his busy surgical calendar when I presented with the need for an inguinal hernia repair. This was my first experience with the doctor, and with the Indian River Medical Center surgical team. I have practiced hospital dentistry for many years and was aware of the standards of care. I was very happy with the level of care that I received, and with the surgical result. Dr. Paul was fantastic. I have absolute confidence in his knowledge and skills, and with his surgical team.
