Patient Comments (3)
in Austin Tx |
Great doctor. Do not like the downtown location. Wish he practiced in other offices.
Very sincere and friendly man. After my appendectomy, when the nurse was explaining to me a liquid diet after discharge, he came in and said LET THE MAN EAT and now I'm eating regular food just fine. 11/10 would recommend.
Dr. Cherico made me feel like I was his only patient and had all of his time I needed for questions or reassurance. Great doctor. Great surgeon.
