I have had 3 different surgeries with this doctor. I had my gallbladder removed. Afterwards, the doctor found a hiatal hernia which was the size of a baseball. No wonder I had awful heartburn. And for many years of lifting heavy objects at work, I developed a hernia. With each surgery I felt very at ease knowing that everyone in the office was going to take care of me. Of course there were money I had to pay as our insurance plans have gotten worst over the years. great experience.

Single incision sleeve gastrectomy. I was told he was the first surgeon who does single incision and robotic surgery. I stayed over night and my incisions look great. because I treated my body so horrible In the past...I now need a gallbladder surgery. It's great this doctor takes the time to explain the surgery. The staff was very supportive. No negative comments. I referred my friends to him.
