Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Terhes "Life is an adventure to be lived and my goal is to get you back to that adventure as soon as possible. I am committed to excellence in healthcare. I perform most surgeries non-invasively or laparoscopically, unless it is in your best health interest to do an open-operation. I work hard to stay abreast of current surgical trends and research and participate in ongoing continuing education. I look forward to talking to you about your operation and how best to approach your specific surgical needs."

John should take up creative writing if the medical profession gets old. Reading his "notes" is...interesting. But then when you only come two feet in the door I suppose you must have a different perspective on things. John is rude, condescending, judgemental and arrogant. I guess in his mind the white coat makes up for the receding hair line and belly. He may or may not be a decent surgeon, I'll never know nor would I care to find out.

I can't thank Dr. Terhes enough for being so helpful with a very uncomfortable situation with a posterior problem, he took the time to figure out what was causing my situation, and explained what plan of action he thought we should take, he was so caring with me and he and his staff where very professional. Thank you so much for your help. I'm feeling sooooo much better. Sue

Likes to schedule appointments and then cancel them. I've been in a lot of pain for 2 weeks and Dr Terhes was more than happy to push me up another 2 weeks because something else came up. I'll spend my money elsewhere. He and his assistant should work on keeping the jokes to a minimum as well especially when discussing sensitive body parts. Dr. Terhes is very friendly and knows what he is doing, but that does me little good if he's unable to keep appointments.
