Had hernia surgery excellent Dr.
Floral Park, NY |
I had to have emergency surgery because of a small bowel obstruction.I have never had surgery. I am now 3 months post surgery and doing great. He is a great surgeon took the time to explain all of my concerns before surgery and follow up care was good. Even while in the hospital the nurses spoke very highly of him. The office manager in his office is great. She is organized keeps things simple and bends over backwards to accommodate your needs. I wish I could clone her to be in all dr's offices.
