      Did surgery on me twice mess me up twice almost died , had to go to a specialist for a third surgery. Because of scar tissue from his two surgery my third surgery I'd only 50 percent an is more extensive. Painful an a longer recovery period. Stay away fro this doctor, he does not care about you.

      Dr. Wakefield performed emergency surgery on my 87 year old Mom. He did a fantastic job and spoke to my Mom and our family with care, kindness, and a great deal of knowledge. We are very grateful he was her surgeon.
