What People Say About Dr. R Jeffrey Karnes, MD
I had a radical retropubic prostatectomy on November 17, 2016. Everything went well, no complication after the surgery and I recovered in the predicted time frame. Dr Jeffrey Kames was very professional and spent sufficient time with me before and after the surgery.
