Recommend using this highly skilled surgeon. I would rate him a perfect 10 if I could. He is a very caring, compassionate, humble doctor. He has an outstanding bedside manner, takes time to thoroughly explain things which instills confidence. He performed a very delicate laparoscopic surgery...more
