Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Armstrong "I will try my best to provide the highest quality care for patients with surgical problems. My focus is solely on you-as the patient- but MUST include perspective on your family, your lifestyle, your job, and other medical conditions you may have. I always talk to patients--but more importantly, I always listen. Whether your surgical problem is 'simple' or 'very complicated'--I will do my utmost to make sure you and your loved one(s) know exactly what should and COULD happen with surgery."

His thoroughness and amazing knowledge and expertise is why I decided to pick Dr. Armstrong for a recent hernia repair. Dr. Armstrong was a second opinion, although he should've been my first. Amazing bedside manner!
