Dr. Singh was my mother in law"s surgeon at Forsyth Memorial Hospital in Winston Salem, NC. He removed my mother in law"s gall bladder. She is 89 years old and he did a wonderful job of taking care of her. I would definitely get Dr. Singh to perform other surgeries on any of my family and friends. He has a wonderful beside manner that puts all of your family at ease.

Dr. Singh was my surgeon for my recent inguinal hernia surgery. I met with him twice prior to the surgery for office visits to prepare for the surgery. His "bedside manner" is excellent. He exudes caring and compassion and a high level of competence . I felt very comfortable with him in charge. He answered all of my questions before and after surgery in a thorough and caring manner. I strongly recommend him should you need a surgeon for hernia surgery!

I will recommend Dr. Singh to anyone I know who needs a gastro surgeon. Everyone was very nice and helpful at his office. Dr. Singh was prompt and helpful each time I saw him. His bedside manner was very good.

Dr. Singh treated my 21 yr. old grandson when his appendix ruptured, then 2 weeks later when he had a small bowel obstruction. He was on call the day we went to the ER and we feel very blessed that he was! He removed the ruptured appendix, and treated the ugly peritonitis that resulted from it. Two weeks later, on the weekend, I called the on call operator 3 times with concerns and each time Dr. Singh returned my calls. My grandson was admitted and again Dr. Singh was great! Highly recommend

Dr. Singh performed an emergency appendectomy on me March 5th. Sunday morning when normally I would be in worship service, I'm on the operating table. The surgery was the easiest I have ever had and I have had several over the years. Released the same day, I went home to a normal Sunday afternoon. There were NO post op complications. If needed, I will seek his services again!

Dr. Singh was consistently helpful and did a great job of explaining what he thought we needed to do and why he thought so. He was very knowledgeable. He ultimately saw me through a dangerous attack of pancreatitis and two surgeries. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Singh performed a colon resection surgery on me and did a wonderful job. I wore an ostomy bag for 4 months and have fully recovered. He's an outstanding doctor and I highly recommend him for general surgery.

Dr Singh is a wonderful wonderful doctor. Iwas having lots of stomach problems for almost 2years. Once I seen Dr Singh, he explained what needed to be done which washaving part of my stomach removed. He explained everything about the the surgery, the problems I couldhave and some that he knew I wouldhave. I had surgey on the 28th of Sept and no problems. The only bad part was 2 weeks in the hospital. THANK YOU DR.SINGH FOR EVERYTHING.

I was admitted to Forsyth Medical center for a gallbladder attack. Pain was very severe. Dr Singh came in and reviewed my history of surgeries. He immediately scheduled me for emergency surgery. He was very kind and considerate and took the time to listen to my concerns and was top notch in my care. Thanks for your help in this matter. I am now doing fine.
in Winston-Salem, NC |
Dr. Sign was so patient and understanding with me. I needed a colostomy bag, and was scared to death. He reassured me everything would be alright. Six months later he did my reversal. He did an excellent job with me. I've never meet a doctor more compassionate and kind, than him. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. I am well pleased, and satisfied with his care. I can't say that about every doctor I've seen.

I made an unplanned visit to the Forsyth Hospital Emergency Room and Dr Signh performed surgery and had me feeling like new within 12 hours of my entry to the ER. Very quick and precise.

I came into the ER with a severe case of diverticulitis, Dr. Singh stepped in and helped me with my health issues I was experiencing. Over the next several months we stayed in contact until i was healthy enough for surgery. Surgery went smooth and scars were as minimal as they could be. He is a very caring and compassionate doctor and I would highly recommend him

Dr. Singh and his PA were amazing!!!!! I came to them with appendicitis and they acted quickly and helped to calm my nerves. I was in surgery a few hours later. They were very informative and answered all of my questions. 2 weeks later and my incisions are healed. An overall great experience. I would definitely recommend this doctor!!!
in Denton, NC |
Met Dr Singh in the ER when i had a strangulated colon. I was told by another ER doctor that, I may not make it through the night. With good luck and Dr Singh's skills, I'm still here today. I told him that I owe him my life!! This happened 3 years ago. I think he is one of the finest doctors that I have ever met!!!! Compassionate, thoughtful and so much more.
