Dr. Quast is a phenomenal surgeon! He is experienced in all fields - and is especially trained in difficult surgeries! In addition his bedside manner is outstanding, as is his commitment to giving his patients the best care. If it were not for his expertise during my high risk surgical procedures I likely would not be alive to write this review! If you are looking for the best surgeon to manage your case you need look no further than Dr. Don Quast!

Dr. Quast gave me my life back. I was experiencing chronic pelvic pain for a over a year. I had been to 10 other doctors, had an MRI, CT, 3 ultrasounds, a laparoscopy, and dozens of other blood and urine tests. I went from an active 20 year old to someone who could hardly get out of bed and take care of herself, and I was about to give up on doctors until we found him. He diagnosed me in 5 minutes and did the surgery the following week. Thank you for helping me get back to my life, Dr. Quast!

Dr Quast saved my life. I was shot in 1981. He was the attending. He took out the bullet and saved my life. he is wonderful and good bedside manner. his staff are great. they checked on me over and over again. It was a hold up at my restaurant, and I was shot when they took the money. I still have some lasting issues but none in relation to his terrific actions. HE SAVED MY LIFE and for that I think about him even to this day.

Though he is on in years, Dr. Quast is extremely competent and experienced. Not only that, but he is the kindest, most compassionate surgeon that I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Instead of living up to the stereotype of being cold and aloof, Dr. Quast instead is warm, thoughtful, and comforting. It's like having an incredibly intelligent and able grandfather taking care of you. I never doubted his abilities and he did everything he could to make me feel safe. My surgery went extremely well
