    I had to have emergency surgery, He called me when leaving my regular doctor heading down stairs for a CT Scan. I had a strangulated umbilical hernia and said he would see me that night. Sure enough he was there. Due to the fever said we will go at 8 am and we did. Dr Vakil is the BEST surgeon and I recommend him 1000%, and he cares for you and you might even run into him on the street. Again fantastic surgeon.
