I was apprehensive when I was advised to have a colon resection to remove a mass causing a small bowel obstruction. Dr. Dunki-Jacobs was recommended highly in the health care field and that spoke volumes to me. He is a very talented surgeon and was able to do my surgery with great success. He robotically and meticulously removed the mass and reconnected everything with with minimal recovery time. It is apparent too that he is acaring and committed person who was as happy as I was with results.

Cincinnati – Oct 18, 2017
Cancer is such a horrible word which elicits fear, uncertainty and a feeling of helplessness. Dr. DJ was informative, patient and showed such empathy for my family and myself. He and his staff were concerned about all of us. My Husband and adult children shared my fears and they understood this. I was treated as a whole person not just an illness. I was blessed to have found him and would willingly recommend him.
