Dr. Sather was extremely patient in answering questions and very thorough in his explanations. His surgery was outstanding and the healing time was much quicker than anticipated. Several other providers commented on the how good the surgery site looked and were astonished when told how recent the surgery had been, considering how good everything looked.
