Dr. Szentez is a wonderful surgeon! I had my first ever surgery with him and he made sure I was comfortable and informed with the entire procedure. His nurses were also great as they were concerned about a heart issue I have been having and referred me to a cardiologist! Szentes and his staff go above and beyond with their work!

What a wonderful surgeon. I was so scared to find out I had cancer, and he was so patient with me and encouraged me to ask as many questions as I could think of. The bilateral mastectomy went perfectly and I just could not be happier that I found him to do the work for me.

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.
