    Patient Comments (1)
    in Richmond, VA |
    Surgery 7 yrs ago but tell people with cancer about him in hopes they could have him as THEIR surgeon. Brilliant WITH a bedside manner. How often does a patient find that? An expert in pain mgt which was a fear. Off narcotics in 5 days after bilateral mastectomies. Kind perfectionist. Remembers every detail about a patient and can explain information on a level that anyone could understand. Skilled surgeon- doesn't get better than him. Jane
