Patient Comments (1)
Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Kairys is an excellent doctor. I went to him for a 2nd opinion and he took the time to answer every question I had and even drew pictures to help me understand that surgery that he would be performing on me. He does not have a God-complex and was excellent with my family after my surgery. If I ever need thyroid surgery again, he is the doctor that I will go to.
