Had laparoscopic hiatal hernia surgery repair. Dr. Favre explained the procedure and told me what to expect during the post-surgery recovery period. Dr. Favre is very compassionate and took time to answer all my questions. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Favre. Dr. Favre is great!

Horrible experience! Didn't even pretend to try and do a real exam. Save your insurance or money and get a second opinion elsewhere.

Excellent Surgeon
Dr Farve is a very compassionate and caring doctor. I have struggled for so many years with GERD. She performed a Nissan Fundoplication. She wraps the top of the stomach around the lower esophagus. I have never felt better in my 63 years. I was able to stop taking Dexilant, which is prescribe for GERD not long-term use. It was the only thing that worked for me to eliminate my Heartburn. Took for 20 years, it caused Stage 3 chronic kidney disease. GERD can cause Barret's esophagus. This can turn into Cancer. Happy and Healthy

Flawless inguinal hernia repair by Dr. Kelly Favre
I am glad I found Dr. Kelly Favre to perform a repair surgery on my inguinal hernia. On the first visit, she clearly explained my options and I decided to have a laparoscopic operation. Dr. Favre performed the procedure so well that I only took one Ibuprofen pill on the second day after coming home when I felt slight discomfort from sitting down or getting up. Later I realized I did not need even that. This little discomfort lasted one week and faded away on its own. Tucson Surgery Center, where Dr. Kelly did the operation, is a modern, uncluttered facility with a team of wonderful people who took good care of me. Thank you, Dr. Favre!

Dr Favre is a terrific surgeon. On the first visit after seeing the problem, She explains everything she believes is the best solution in a kind manner. We did have a disagreement as I did not want mesh and I wanted open rather than laparoscopic surgery. She told me the advantages of laparoscopic surgery but in the end she said that the patient had to be happy and agreed to my wishes. She is really exceptional. Amber, she scheduler went above and beyond the call of duty, answering my calls and further getting in touch with the Tucson Surgery Center to assure me all was set and scheduled. She sent my info more than once just to be sure. Kareem on the other hand couldn't be bothered to return my call,.

I recently had surgery with Dr Favre. It is true what they say, very compassionate and very knowledgeable. I was looking for a Doc with experience in no mesh surgery for umbilical hernias. I’m so happy, I would have never found her if it wasn’t for all the other reviews people had left about her. I’m 2 weeks after surgery, with minimal pain. Doesn’t even look like I had surgery there. So far I’m extremely pleased, still following all her orders on no heavy lifting. Also I plan on returning back to excercise on my 6th week. I feel great and she ok’d me for waking as much as I want. I feel very blessed I found this Specialist. This is something I put off way too long, however I was still in time for a no mesh surgery. Thank you to her and her fantastic team as well!

Dr. Kelly Favre, thank you for care! You are absolutely amazing with your knowledge and expertise. My trip to the Emergency room for an appendectomy was of course unexpected and a bit scary, but I had the most awesome female team of Nurses and Doctors helping me. That was wonderful to see. I thank the whole team for their help and your office staff, professional, kind and patient. ?

Dr. Favre has performed two laparoscopic procedures for me. I have had many surgeries and she is, without a doubt, the most competent and caring surgeon I’ve encountered. Her abdominal laparoscopic techniques allow for faster healing and less scaring. I would recommend her highly.

Dr. Favre is a conceited, arrogant, horrible person. She didn't bother to call my husband after my surgery to let him know how it went. At my follow up appt, she had to drain fluid from my hernia site and told me to sit in the chair instead of the exam table and proceeded to stick me with a needle which was quite painful and extremely uncomfortable in that position. I have a high tolerance for pain and needles don't bother me but as to why she didn't let me lay on the exam table for this procedure makes no sense as it would have been easier for all involved. She constantly talked over me and interrupted me every time I tried to answer her questions, threw my weight in my face numerous times, mentioned how "good" she is and was just flat out rude in every way. When I asked if I needed to see her again for another follow up she looked me up and down and said, "Why? So we can show you how to be active?" Wow. No compassion or decency in any way. Never witnessed ANY "caring" from her.

Dr. Favre has operated on me twice now. She is very compassionate and detailed in discussing what the operations would entail. She always takes the time to listen. Whenever possible I will not seek out other surgeons. I am sure there are many as great, but she definitely meets my comfort level. Her staff and particularly her scheduler, Amber, are great as well.

I ended up being referred to Dr. Farve by my dads coworker. The first visit I fell in love with her. She is so easy going and compassionate. I was terrified to have my gallbladder removed after reading so many horror stories online and she eased my mind! Surgery was over before I even knew it. I only needed pain meds for the first couple of days because I overdid it the day of surgery because I felt better than I expected. I’m almost a week post op and other than normal aches and pains from healing.... I don’t regret it at all!
