I just had hiatal hernia surgery with Dr. Searled. The care I received was great. His staff was awesome, and got me in as quick as possible. I would recommend this doctor to others.

I had a gastric bypass preformed by Dr Searles and am most pleased with outcome. The surgery was done well with no complications. Dr Searles and his staff were very helpful in all aspects of the surgery.

Everything he said would happen...did...i healed quickly and I feel perfect! thank you Dr. searles! I have recommended five or six people to him, I know two, had surgery with him and are also very happy. Again, Thank You Laura Sortino

Dr. Searles, Saved my life. He was caring and serious all at the same time. In my opinion, It seemed that he hadn't slept in ages. However, This fact in no way had any effect on the excellent surgery. I healed on godly fast because of his Method. I was very lucky to get him as a surgeon. Randy Ruedrich Jr.

Seemed rushed every time that I met with him. He did not check my incision to see how it was healing.

I had surgery with Dr. Searles in July of 2009. His office staff was so helpful. I was excited ( of coarse) and called frequently with tons of questions. They never seemed irritated with me, even when I was bugging them a lot and were always so patient and helpful. Dr. Searles is a very knowledgeable man. He is a little serious at times, but he is going to tell you everything you need to know and will answer any questions you have.
