Patient Comments (1)

in Kingsport, TN |
Dr. Kappa performed an Abdominal Aortic Artery repair using the open procedure and an incisional hernia repair (two different occasions.) His demeanor, expertise and decision-making effort were beyond exemplary. A big plus is that he is board certified as a vascular surgeon.
