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."

Patient Comments (2)
Milwaukee, WI |
Horrible experience with this man, very quick to push surgery on me. A surgery it turns out I didn't need at all come to find out. Then when all the complications began afterward, he couldn't care less and in fact suggested a different unnecessary procedure to remedy it. I have severe pain/debilitating nerve damage from his agenda to sell unnecessary surgery. I can no longer enjoy life at such a young age from the permanent damage his greed caused. Go to a different surgeon!

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!
