Dr. Lopes removed my ruptured appendix in a relatively urgent surgery on April 29th. Despite some complications (nothing to do with his skill) he did a great job and my recovery proceeded exactly as he said it would despite my reluctantly following doctor's orders. I highly recommend Dr. Lopes.

He sat down with my wife and I, and explained my problem in a way that we understood. He did not rush through our meeting. We felt very confident with him and are very happy with my results. Thanks so much!
