Patient Comments (3)
in Dewitt, MI |
Although I found Doctor Jeffrey Gawell, MD to be knowledgeable and professional, I would not recommend for hernia surgeries. April 2015 First Surgery 5 hernias age 58 male, Second surgery Feb. 2016 for Repeat hernia repair, Third Surgery Feb. 2017 for Repeat hernia repair. During Feb2017 Surgery another hernia was opened DURING the surgery causing a Forth surgery in April 2017. I will make it clear I had the forth surgery done by another surgeon! Total out of pocket $20K+ cost plus Ins. payments

Had outpatient surgery on December 18 and the whole experience was awesome! outside of a little pain after which was much better than expected.
