Dr. Favre preformed a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair two weeks ago and I have recovered quickly and comfortably. Pain management was accomplished with over the counter pain medication only. The surgery was completed in less then thirty minutes and I was home within three hours. Dr. Favre explained the procedure and recovery and answered all of my questions in a professional, caring and friendly manner. Dr. Favre is a outstanding surgeon and caring person. Dr Favre’s staff is professional, efficient and courteous. A special thank you to Sarah and Amber for helping me with the scheduling process. Thank you Dr. Favre.

My husband was an emergency sepsis situation that began at Encompass Rehab and she was on call at TMC. She tried to talk me out of the surgery, said he might not make it and his cancer was advanced so I might want to just let him go. She left a hole in his stomach that required 3 JP drains, one draining bile. Last night he pulled the most critical one out in his sleep and I called her at 1:30pm and was told, Well he's on hospice, just monitor him for pain. I reminded her he's not on hospice, they don't take TPN (IV feeding) which he's on now since this surgery, ordered by her. She told me to just go get some sleep and monitor pain. I asked if she would like me to bring him in in the morning (Wed, Nov. 27) and she simply said she's not in the office tomorrow, no other options offered. Perhaps if you see this doctor in her office and she has total control start to finish she might exhibit some care and concern but in our case she made us feel like an unwanted burden.

Dr. Favre took the time to explain my procedure fully and answer all of my (many) questions. Everything went exactly as it was described. I feel great.

I have had two surgeries by Dr. Favre in the last 7 years. The first was a cholecystectomy and the second was an inguinal hernia repair. The were both done with laparoscopy and were very successful. I did not have to take any opioids after surgery as I had no pain from either procedure. Her pre and postop care was superb and I highly recommend her to anyone needing general surger.

Two weeks ago I had hiatal hernia repair surgery with Dr. Favre. She made me feel very comfortable with the procedure by carefully explaining what would be done and what the benefits would be to me personally. She answered every question that my husband or I asked in a way that was easily understood while not talking down to either of us.

On the 1st May Dr Favre performed a lumpectomy on my right breast. From our first meeting in her office she explained every thing in detail. I was very nervous she put me at ease.The day of the surgery she came and explained it all again, very thoughtful as i was even more nervous, after the surgery she was there when i came round to tell me how successful it had been, i would recommend her 100%. She is a credit to her profession thank you Dr Favre,
