Dr. T is an amazing surgeon and Doctor. He is always there for you as a patient. He listens carefully, observes your condition, provides appropriate tests, discusses options so that you understand each, and is a genuinely caring person. I have had two surgeries with him as my primary surgeon and am completely satisfied with the procedures and outcomes! I highly recommend him as a surgeon and Doctor.
