First things first, He’s a very down to earth nice Guy. Secondly, I had my Gallbladder removed (Cholecystectomy) Laprascopically by him. Dr. Erbella made one VERY small incision through my Belly Button that you can not even see. I’m a Med-Surg Nurse and see these every day, I was VERY impressed. I...Read More
