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.
