I recently had double hernia surgery by Dr. Muddaraj and I was so happy to meet with him. His office staff and appointment availability were so easy to deal with. Dr. Muddaraj was so nice and explained exactly what my surgery entailed and answered all my questions. I am so happy I decided to have my surgery by Dr Muddaraj.

I had my gallbladder removed by Dr. Muddaraj. He was very detailed, friendly and I never felt rushed. A few nurses at the hospital told me he is a great surgeon and well liked by staff. The nurses and receptionist at his office are very friendly. Highly recommend him.
