I can not comprehend how ANYONE would not give this man a 10 star rating , if available. This man is a pioneer with the expertise of kidney transplant, double nephrectomy by laparoscopic AT time of transplant. 1 surgery and that is it. He truly is amazing. He is such a pleasant man, so easy to speak with, a very humble man but most of all he truly cares about you, the patient. Lastly, he works for the #1 medical facility in the world. Mayo!

phenomenal!!!!!! excellent manner, made me feel at ease with complete trust, on top of everything. I had bilateral nephrectomy, hernia repair, kidney implant and intestinal blockage in 2016, having never been to Mayo Clinic before I had no idea who would be performing these surgeries. I could not have asked for a better surgeon, caregiver and friend!!!!! Worth his weight in GOLD!!!
