Patient Comments (1)
in NY |
Dr. Reader is one of the most brilliant surgeons I have ever known. He is perceptive, sensitive, patient, kind & sincere in his overall demeanor. I highly recommend him to anyone contemplating surgery. He really listens & tries to understand your medical situation & will take the time to address all your concerns. I have Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and I have no visible scars from the 2 surgeries he did for me, this shows how incredibly talented he is! I'd give him 100 stars, if I could!
