in Plainsboro, NJ |
I had my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago and I have to say the best part of this process was Dr. Lopes. First, he came HIGHLY recommended by my primary, 2nd, the office was very easy to get to, 3rd he took the time to explain (and draw) what was going to happen, 4th the actual surgery was PERFECT, 5th TINY SCARS!!!!!, 6th the girls in the office were very nice. Dr. Lopes NEVER made me feel rushed either. I am going to recommend Dr. Lopes LOUDLY to ANYONE who needs a general surgeon!!!
