Three months ago Dr. Rawlins performed a hiatal hernia repair with Nissen fundoplication on me. I consider the results to be a miracle! I had severe acid reflux/heartburn for years and years. Now I have none at all. I can eat and drink whatever I want. No more acid blockers or Tums. The surgery was easy to recover from. Not only is Dr. Rawlins a miracle worker, he is also a very nice guy--cheerfully answering all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Rawlins and his team. A totally positive experience.

Dr. Mathew Rawlins and his professional team of nurses provided lathroscopic surgery to repair my hernia. He answered all my questions in our pre surgery interview, he and his surgery team which included two student observers performed my surgery in about an hour, and nurses provided post op care and instructions for recovery. Now I am healed, and grateful that I will not need a hernia belt for the rest of my life!
