You couldn't choose a more empathetic and knowledgeable surgeon. His appointment schedule is pretty crowded. Might take a month to see him. Don't do what I did and find someone sooner. It caused me an additional month of discomfort. Thank you Dr "anti"Payne.

Dr. Payne treats every case as though he was operating on his own family member. He does everything in his power to ensure the best possible outcome. He is a highly skilled surgeon who His bedside manner is wonderful. He's very personable, gives thorough explainations, and ensures he answers all questions. It is very obvious that he cares greatly about his patients. I wouldn't trade his surgical skills for a shorter wait time or nicer lobby elsewhere. It's my life in his hands.
