Pell City, Alabama |
He quite literally save my mother and aunt with his complex knowledge of FAR more than plastic surgery. He was pivotal at restoring many years of health to a nearly helpless situation due to sever abdominal stomach muscle failure. I know he is no longer practicing but is teaching-- I'd look for a student trained by this superior surgeon.
