He is a very compassionate man with an excellent bedside manner & explains everything he plans to do in detail, including what could go wrong. He was so confident but humble and in talking to his receptionists and nurses, he is top notch. I think he's a great surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone. The wait time can be long sometimes but it's worth it because he doesn't rush through patients which makes him the best kind of Dr.

I had colon cancer and Dr Messaris was my surgeon to perform a colectomy to remove the cancerous tumor. He explained everything to my wife and I very thoroughly and patiently. He was a very calming voice in a time of worry, and he was very confident and helped to ease our worries. He was very caring, compassionate, and understanding, yet explained everything directly and in terminology that was very understandable. I cannot thank Dr Messaris enough for the outstanding work that he performed!
