What People Say About Dr. Pascal Spehar, MD
Reply
Fine surgeon, worked with him in the OR several years ago. Gentle technique, qiuck worker, doesn't muck about, trust him implicitly. When I needed my gallbladder out, he was the go-to guy for a good result. Still is. Great trauma surgeon too. Absolutely gold standard all the way in the OR.
