It was great meeting with Dr. Yunis. He was both patient and thorough, and he was very clear and direct in explaining the options and approaches for my surgery. Would suggest that anyone considering any kind of hernia procedure would be well-advised to see him. Thank you, Dr. Yunis.

It is amazing too me that there are only excellent reviews for Dr. Yunis. My experience was not even close to being good. When I went for my first time I was ecstatic that I found someone to finally take care of my very large hernia. But instead of telling me the possibility of it not working he went ahead and did it. A couple of months later I was back with the hernia back again. Surgery was scheduled for Nov. that year. Ended up with peritonitis because of a cut bowel and exploratory surgery w/two bags. Infection followed so more surgeries probably10 total. So now I have a bag that I can never have repaired because of the damage done to my abdominal wall. I still look like a nine month pregnant woman on my left side and a bag that can not be reversed. Before you decide get another opinion because I could show you proof. The absolute only saving grace is Melanie. She was the only good in a horrible time.mm
