I had to has emergency gallbladder surgery the night before Thanksgiving. Dr.Artz was professional, gave me great information, and 4 days later I am back in my feet. She has a delightful bedside manner, and makes sure you are informed as well as understanding the information. I am blessed she was on call that night, and am thankful she was willing to help me. If you need laparoscopic gallbladder surgery.... she is your doc!

I was very nervous to have some lipomas removed. It was done in office. Before I knew it she was done and went home. She is so upbeat, precise, professional, and caring. The staff at this office is great as well. I'd trust her and recommend her for anyone.

Tremendously positive experience from initial appointment to surgery and follow up for hernia surgery. Dr. Artz was very friendly, both to me and my wife, gave a thorough explanation , spoke at both my and my wife's limited level of hernia knowledge, and routinely confirmed my understanding of the procedure. On the day of surgery, she was timely, bright-eyed and confident. Surgical results were outstanding, and, as promised, Dr. Artz called me at home following my release. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Dr. Artz was professional with a great sense of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed her comments with humor when she quickly visited me a few minutes before the actual procedure. Her first visit explanation re: the surgery was complete and answered questions without hesitation. She included what I would expect during the first 2 weeks of recovery and she was right on target. Overall, she gave me great peace with her superb communication skills. You are doing exactly what you were created to do!

Dr. Artz fixed a hernia I had back in July 2016, and so far no complications whatsoever, I followed her instructions to the letter and I was back in the gym in no time. Would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a competent hernia surgeon.

Dr. Artz is the best physician I've ever met! She has performed 3 unrelated surgeries on my husband. She has a terrific bedside manner. I found Dr. Artz to be brilliant in mind and spirit. She has always been kind, caring, competent, positive, and sincere. She genuinely cares about her patients. I highly recommend Dr. Artz.

I was delighted with my encounter with Dr. Artz. She removed a cyst in my rear that was causing piroformis sciatica due to pressure. She was stellar at meeting my personal needs and I would recommend her to everyone.
