    Dr. Nisar Zaidi performed my bilateral laproscopic inguinal hernia repair this week. He was very kind, answered my questions, came back when I had more questions, and checked up on me after I awoke in recovery and again before I was discharged. I am now 3 days post-surgery and am taking minimal medication. I feel better than I'd expected and look forward to recovering fully and having a better quality of life. The entire care staff there was wonderful, personable, and attentive. I'm just sorry I don't remember all of their names. Thank you all for the phenomenal job you did and continue to do daily.
