    Dr Gaudet perform surgery on my husband’s collapsed lung and when I tell you he’s the best doctor. He’s young and very smart. He explained every detail to me after the surgery. He made my husband feel special and I immediately gained confidence in this awesome doctor. If only there were more doctors like Dr M Gaudet. He’s so caring and shows genuine concern. Thank you Dr. Gaudet for being one awesome guy!
