I was diagnosed with Ulcertive Colitis and now it is believed I have Crohn's Disease. Dr. Pemberton has been my surgeon throughout my battle with these diseases. I would not trust anyone else with my care; he is an excellent surgeon and I have to complete confidence in his knowledge and abilities.
in Des Moines, IA |
I had surgery over 20 years ago with Dr Pemberton and I will never forget his professionalism, infused with kindness. If it wouldn't have been for Dr Pemberton, I may very well have lived with a permanent ostomy. I had a minor complication between the 2 surgeries I had with him. I called the office at 2pm and his 1st assistant told me they would see me that evening. I live 3+ hours away and they said, it didn't matter, they would wait for me.
