Dr. Robert Conter treated me for pancreatic cancer in 2012 in Lancaster and performed Whipple surgery. I have the highest regard for his surgical skills and his relationship with and support for his patients and would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of the kind of surgery he covers. I was pleased to have Dr. Conter recommended to me by another excellent physician in my area and so happy it was not necessary to travel to Philadelphia or Baltimore for such a highly qualified surgeon.
