Dr. Soss saved my life. My liver was failing due to cancer and he installed a stent and I was able to recover. When he met me I was yellow and dying. He is an extremely kind and intelligent surgeon with amazing bedside manner. He assuaged all my fears and communicated the procedure in a way that was not triggering to my massive anxiety surrounding my cancer diagnosis. I wish covid wasn't a thing because I wanted to hug him after our third and hopefully finally last surgery together. Thanks Soss, you're the best.
