I brought my adult daughter here and he literally saved her life by cleaning up the botched mess of another surgeon. He has the ability to calm the waters and his decision’s have been spot on. Trust is earned and he’s earned ours. She’s got severe crohn’s and has had several needed surgeries since. His relationship with her is special, I can’t imagine anyone better. Thank you doctor Cima!

1st of 3 surgeries to create a j-pouch. I was to be in the hospital no longer than 4 nights. Came out of surgery in 10/10 pain. Over a week it all got worse and I was showing full signs of shock. Dr refused to do a CT until the 7th day when my body began shutting down. CT showed free flowing fluid and it was a punctured bowel. Dr stopped rounds after emergency surgeries (2+ more wks in hospital) It has taken 6 months to recover from this. I now have PTSD and still need 2 more surgeries.
