When deciding to research if you are eligible for the TIF procedure, there are many excellent reasons to choose Aspirus – Iron River. I too was a little skeptical about going to a small hospital. I found the surgical team exceptional and extremely professional. All staff follows the three C's: Caring, Competent and very Cohesive. Everyone working together makes your journey successful. Today you get more personal care at a small hospital. The staff at the clinic and hospital are exceptional!

Lastly, the hospital, located in Iron River, Mi. is a new and very comfortable place.

Dr. Fanous performed a TIF in order to correct a weak esophageal valve. He precisely and patiently explained the procedure to me and the surgery was a success. He possesses a very grounded bedside manner and is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him highly.
