Patient Comments (1)

He performed my lap choley at novant. I was very impressed both his explanations while I was an inpatient for nearly a week and his dedication to performing my surgery on his lunch time. F/U in office was both speedy and pleasant. Many thanks from an extremely grateful patient.
