Most friendly and profession facility! Other health places I have used I have waited up to over an hour past my appointment time to even be called back. Lincoln Surgical waved me back right on my appointment time. Dr. Aach listened to everything I needed to discuss. Physician and staff all were very friendly, prompt and professional. Highly recommend!

My experience with Dr Aach is excellent. I'm being treated for a thyroid problem and he has my complete trust. He is straightforward and caring. Dr Aach is very easy to talk to.

Dr. Aach performed my wife's gall bladder removal a few years ago. He is a skilled surgeon, and the surgery went well, but he is bed side manner is horrible. He seemed annoyed to have to operate on a patient that is overweight. He made several rude comments about it over the course of her care. A surgeon is more than just his skill, he is also a caregiver, and should act accordingly.
