I recently had hemorrhoid removal surgery by Dr. Rimkus. I highly recommend him. I had minimal amount of pain and I felt his office was there for all my questions. After reading on line about the pain of this surgery, I almost cancelled. But I'm so glad that I didn't. I was up and about the next day. It was uncomfortable with itching, burning, etc. but nothing like what I read on line.

Dr. Rimkus knew exactly what was wrong with me and took care of the issue immediately. He gave me his opinion on whether it was cancer or not (thankfully it was not!) He took the time to explain everything to me and my family. He is very knowledgeable, professional, caring, friendly and just awesome! I would/will recommend him to everyone! If I ever am in need of a surgeon in the future, I will go back to Dr. Rimkus....no hesitation.
