I have had two hernia's repaired by Dr Yunice. And both were very well handled . The last one in 2015, July was one of the best medical experiences I have had in my life.
Longboat Key, FL |
I had an excellent outcome from my surgery and can recommend everyone in this office, they were caring and very good to me.
in Venice, FL |
Repaired Hernia and did excellent job. Only needed Tylenol to relieve pain and only needed for 4 days. Been 1 week now and can do anything I want with a few exceptions. Dr Yunis and staff are very professional and I couldn't imagine going to anyone else for Hernia repair
in Tarpon Springs, FL |
His skill as a hernia repair surgeon is incredible!! He did a double hernia repair on me and the results were nothing short of amazing! I would recommend to anyone who has a serious hernia.
Excellent experience! Dr. Yunis and his team have their A game on at every step of the process. Caring, compassionate, competent... you can't ask for more.
in Riverview, FL |
Dr Yunis and Ralph, his wonderful PA are the best. Did a great job on my hernia repair. Treat every patient like family. Highly recommended.
in Naples, FL |
Three years ago Dr. Yunis gave me the opportunity to live an active, satisfying retirement! After three failed hernia surgeries by other surgeons, Dr. Yunis performed an abdominal reconstruction surgery on me. He is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. He has intimate knowledge of the anatomy of the abdominal area. I am now three years pain and hernia free thanks to Dr. Yunis. Thanks to Dr. Yunis and his staff for their work in giving me an absolutely wonderful life!
in Aventura, Florida |
How grateful I am that I can cite my experience with Dr.Yunis and his staff in Sarasota at the Center for Hernia Repair. From my very first visit at the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the office itself. Dr. Yunis inspires the utmost confidence by his wealth of knowledge, skill, and professionalism. Kudos and the highest recommendation to Dr. Yunis and everyone at The Center for Hernia Repair.
in Lakewood Ranch, FL |
He really knows his stuff ! So easy to talk to and explains everything. Highly recommend him.
in Sarasota, FL |
On or about September 13th, I found myself in need of Hernia surgery. Having no experience or knowledge about Hernia issues, a family friend recommended Dr. Jonathan Yunis. I cannot begin to explain how wonderful Dr. Yunis and his staff are, they are the best. I was advised every step of the way, surgery went exactly as planned and I was relaxed and made comfortable, without pain medication. Except Ibuprofen and Tylenol. I would recommend Dr. Yunis and his caring staff to everyone.
in Parrish, FL |
Inguinal hernia laparoscopy end of August. OUTSTANDING experience - from initial evaluation visit, thru surgery, and onto followup visit. Dr. Yunis and his staff - including PA Ralph - were courteous, professional and efficient. Sarasota Physicians Surgical Center where surgery was performed was great. The staff that attended me there did an outstanding job. I would STRONGLY recommend Dr. Tunis and his excellent staff to anyone seeking hernia repair surgery. Thanks for a job well done!
in Sarasota, FL |
Could not be happier or more impressed with Dr. Yunis and his team. After moths of un-diagnosed excruciating groin pain, I was referred to Dr Yunis where he went above and beyond to diagnose my femoral hernia and personally took my phone calls when I became bed ridden. His bedside manner is amazing and he truly cares for his patients and wants and will ONLY do what's best for you. He got me into surgery 1 week after my initial visit and I woke up from surgery pain free.
in Tampa, FL |
All I can say is that I had success with Dr. Yunis, his diagnosis and work on me was 100% successful. He was concerned about my needs and was passionate about how the whole process turned out for me. The outpatient facility was very comfortable and the service was excellent. I recovered faster than expected and have zero...none...no pain and am back to lifting weights and running. Thank you Dr. Yunis
in Sarasota, FL |
I give my strongest recommendation to Dr Jonathan Yunis.. How do I know? Well, I?m kind of an expert on Doctors. I am 45 years old and have had 11 different surgeries by 10 different doctors. Dr Yunis was the best. When I met with him he addressed my concerns and was careful to have all the diagnostic test done that were needed.He was honest and straightforward even when it wasn?t what I wanted to hear. He also set realistic expectation. The operation was a 100% success.

Dr. Yunis performed double hernia surgery on me eight days ago and the experience was beyond excellent I would recommend DR Yunis to anyone in need of hernia surgery .
in Ft Myers, FL |
Dr. Yunis performed complicated double hernia surgery on me about 4 years ago. It was my 3rd surgery on my right side (two previous surgery s by another doctor in Fort Myers had failed). It was my first hernia on my left side. I can report that 4 years later Dr. Yunis's repair are still solid and I am forever grateful. The whole experience (staff included) was beyond excellent and I have recommended Dr. Yunis to others who live in Fort Myers area.
in Sarasota, FL |
My surgical experience with Dr Yunis and the support staff far exceeded my expectations. During the initial consult he diagnosed the problem, and gave me his guarantee that he could fix the recurring hernia using laparoscopic surgery, and that the recovery period would be minimal. He was true to his word, and I was back playing golf in under 2 weeks! Also, the team at the front office were very professional and caring. I highly recommend Dr Yunis to anyone who needs this surgery.
in Cortez, FL |
Dr. Yunis's repair of my hernia was excellent. I was amazed how good I felt so rapidly after the operation. I certainly chose the right doctor to do this hernia repair. Excellent and completely successful operation.
in Tampa, FL |
Professional, efficient, exceptional service, and very friendly staff. Two years since double hernia surgery with no issues. Returned to fitness regimen within 3 weeks, and stronger than ever. As for surgery procedure, in at 8am, having a Starbucks at 12 noon. As a self pay, cost very reasonable. Thank you Dr. Yunis!
in Sarasota, FL |
I met with Dr. Yunis on a Thursday. I had surgery the following Monday. I was back to work Wednesday night. I had never had surgery before, but Dr. Yunis and his staff made me feel very comfortable and confident. I had been putting this off for a while. Now I wish I had gone sooner. Very good experience with very little discomfort.
