Had surgery in October of 2016. Couldn't ask for a better doctor. Bedside manner and overall caring was top notch. It's important to have trust and a connection with a specialist and I really did. Bottom line he's amazing at his job. 2 years after my surgery myself and my wife were at the hospital visiting a patient and he walked up to us to say hi. Remembered us by name ....Impressive
