      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

      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.

      Due to the severity of my hernia and my predisposition to weakness in my abdominal wall, he recommended abdominal reconstruction. There are very few surgeons who know how to perform this complex procedure. Dr. Yunis, who is passionate about repairing hernias, knows how to do this procedure. Thanks to Dr. Yunis, I lead a productive and physically active life! I am riding my horses, working in the garden, and doing physical activity free of the hernia. If you have a hernia, see Dr. Yunis.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
