We would not recommend this surgeon as he operates out of three different hospital in three hospitals and does not spend any time physically following up on the patients. He gets all over the nurses cases when they call because their is a problem from the surgery he performed. He verbally told me more than once that his job is done when surgery is over. He also speaks in analogies rather than plain talk families and patient can understand.
