What People Say About Dr. Eric Vallieres, MD
Reply
It's been several years since Dr. Vallieres did my somewhat unusual operation and I am doing well. The recovery was tougher than I expected, but also faster. Despite some things that made the surgery difficult, Vallieres was able to get everything out and the scar is much better than I expected: barely visible even though I usually scar easily. I appreciated that he listened to me and my priorities and expectations during the presurgical consult and was willing to take a chance on me.
