Patient Comments (1)
in Cedarburg, WI |
Dr Aquavella is an amazing, gifted surgeon. He does what other doctors said was impossible. He takes time to explain and teach and made us feel like he was willing to take as much time as we needed with him. His follow up after surgery and this first year has been like no other doctor I have ever met. He is wonderful and such a blessing to know.
