Surgeon/doctor Sinha is top notch. He is very patient, gentle and friendly. He didn’t make us feel rushed, he spent time listening to us and answered our questions with care and knowledge. After the surgery, he went to the visitor waiting room looking for my husband and gave him a thorough update. He also talked to be briefly at the recovery room as I was still fight of the anesthesia. At some point, I woke up again while he was walking by, he waved his hand at me and smiled under the mask. He has a great, warm smile (we saw his video clips & had a telehealth visit with him) that give people trust and safe feeling. Highly recommend doctor Sinha!

The most talented, compassionate, kind and caring surgeon I’ve ever known. I’m so lucky to have been under his care for a bilateral hernia repair.
