Dr. Philosophe is an excellent surgeon ! He is very skilled and one of the best in the New England area. He performed surgery to repair my fallopian tube and removed some endometriosis. When I saw another doctor for a related condition, he spoke highly of the result of Dr. Philosophe’s work which was of an extremely delicate nature. Would definitely recommend him.

I saw him on August 29, 2016 for a pap due to EXCRUTIATING cramping and bleeding. He took the time to explain what was going on, why things are happening and what my options are. I went back the next day for an ultrasound/vaginal ultrasound. After that he did a hysteroscopy. Next week he's going to do a hysterectomy. There's no one else I would trust to do this. He's very comforting, supportive and personable. Also, thank you to Suzanne for being comforting, personable and supportive.
