Patient Comments (1)
in Memphis, TN |
My husband was treated by this surgeon. He was absolutely superb. His skills are impeccable and his confidence was through the roof. He was one of the brightest spots in a horrible hospital stay. The staff at the hospital told my husband that he was getting one of the best and he did. That was two years ago and I am just getting back to this medical emergency that caused my husband to be hospitalized while we were traveling. This doctor asked us to try and come back so he could follow-up.
