I have been so sick for last 4 years on couple items and one was two hernias, no one would help. I had to have a couple other surgery's before I could see him. I made it, and to my first meeting with him. I freaked. In my room. remember. no one would help. Dr Kerent Pihl. Came in the room and just was all there for me and my wife. He spoke for a few minutes and I had to look at my wife and say to him, Where in the hell have you been! Surgery 2 week later. Been a week. Recommend to all
