Dr. Szentes is very knowledgeable and personable, and he exudes both confidence and sincerity. I felt comfortable speaking with Dr. Szentes about subject matter that otherwise causes me to feel uncomfortable and skittish. The office staff are also very professional and very customer friendly. As for the outpatient surgery I submitted to, it was the most straightforward and least complicated such process I have ever encountered. The surgery went well and I never experienced any pain at all.

I had a very good experience with both Dr. Szentes and his staff. He was concerned and called me personally with the results of my biopsy. He explained things thoroughly, and answered my husband's and my questions in a kind manner.
