Dr. Dombrow is an excellent doctor. Made me feel very comfortable and explained everything thAt he would be doing. He constantly asked me if I was doing ok through the procedure and made it as painless as possible. He also contacted me the day after surgery to check on me, that's a great doctor!...more
