Patient Comments (4)
in Bloomington, IN |
Dr. Topo has worked on my mother, her boyfriend, and myself twice to remove various cysts/ tumors.
in Bloomington, IN |
I was a very, very sick young lady when I met Dr. Topo. I was beyond worried that he would blow me off as so many doctors over the years have. He ordered tests until he figured out my gallbladder was HUGE, and had been for many years. He was funny, kind, and quick to treat me. Some people may be off put by his humor, and language, but for me, and my family it was reassuring. He would take the time to sit down in the hospital room and discuss things with us. The best surgeon ever!!
in Bedford, IN |
Dr. Topo has done 3 surgeries on me and possibly a 4th coming up. I will not let anyone else do surgery on me that is how much I trust him. He is very to the point, but is also kind. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is always upbeat and ready to joke around. He saved my life the first surgery and I am forever grateful to and for him. He has also gone above and beyond for me which I could never repay.
in Morgantown |
Dr "Topo" is a good and kind man. He has an interesting, positive and funny bedside manner, and he exudes confidence when talking about my medical issues. I highly respect his opinions and having received surgery from him 3 years ago (repair of an inguinal hernia on my right side, which I carried since age 16, _I'm presently 60_), I cannot imagine going to any other general surgeon.
