Patient Comments (14)
in Lititz, PA |
I was referred to Dr. Pauli by another doctor for major hernia surgery. Dr. Pauli was very knowledgeable and competent. I felt very comfortable with him and at ease. The surgery he performed on me was excellent. He was very caring and kept me informed about everything involved. I highly recommend him.
in Osceola Mills, PA |
I had to travel two times a 260 mile round trip to find out whether Dr. Pauli removes Hernia mesh or not. The second time there he simply refused to see me and to talk to me. Rude and hostile attitude, no decency , dignity, discipline and respect.
in Reisterstown, MD |
Competent and friendly staff. Respected my needs and my time. Dr Pauli treated me respectfully and with a warmth not often found in surgeons. My surgical care was excellent. Dr Pauli was concerned about all aspects of my care. The surgery was a breeze.
in Glen Rock, PA |
Dr. Pauli is a phenomenal surgeon and such a caring person. He took the time to explain until I understood all aspects of my surgery and recovery. He answered all my questions and made himself and staff available to me through the entire process. He is through and kind. I can not say enough positive comments about my hernia repair experience with Dr. Pauli

in Myerstown, Pennsylvania |
Dr. Pauli is a doctor I recommend to anyone that needs surgical help in his field of expertise. He helped me understanding the full extent of the damage the polyp in my throat could do to me, and went over the surgery and protocol of the entire procedure giving me reassurance that He knows what he is doing.

Thank you for thoroughly explaining the surgery you performed while adding a small touch of humor to the situation.

I highly recommend Dr. Pauli. He was referred to me by Dr Ann Rogers to repair surgical hernias. I was very impressed with my first meeting with Dr PAuli and had total confidence in what he said he could do for me. The surgery went very well and I have had no complications.
in wilkes barre, pa |
Dr. Pauli impressed with how well he explained things so that I was able to understand. He was easy to talk to and listened to what I had to say. Treated me as a person and showed that he was concerned about my condition. Did not rushed me out the door and spent enough time so I knew what was going to happen.
