    One of the best doctors I have ever seen. Very proficient in his expertise, he listens to the patient!!, very good follow up care, great reputation amongst his peers within the teaching facility at st Joseph's. He did in one surgery what others surgeons have told me would take at least two. I had a very difficult time finding a surgeon who was qualified to perform my surgery until I met him and his staff.

    I would highly recommend Dr Medina to anyone. An excellent Surgeon and also a Dr who is sensitive and compassionate. I appreciated the time he spent with me, before , during and after my hernia surgery. Was very pleasant and friendly at all follow up appointments. Answered all my questions and made me feel unconcerned about my surgery. Because of Dr. Medina, I had no stress at all. One of the best Drs I've ever had! I wish all specialists were like Dr Medina.

    I had a large Hernia in a very bad location. It was on upper stomach and rib section. Another Surgeon refused to operate because he said it was too dangerous. I went to Dr. Medina for evaluation. After a through exam, he told me he could and would operate on my Hernia. He operated and the surgery turned out great and successful. Dr. Medina is not only a great surgeon but listening and explanations are traits most Doctors lack. I recommend him to anyone. I am blessed to have found Dr.Medina.
