Dr "G" is the best surgeon I've been to, I've had crohn's since I was 17yrs old and I've had over 70 surgeries.Dr G has been through hell working on me. My procedure was scheduled for 4-6hrs and it ended up taking 12-14hrs. This man never gave up, He's very compassionate and caring and believe it...more
