    I am truly thankful for Dr.Petrov. He is such a knowledgeable, attentive and compassionate surgeon. I received workup prior to surgery with prompt results and detailed explanations. He made me feel very comfortable going into surgery and provided me with a clear picture of what to expect pre/postoperatively. I had surgery to help with my reflux issues and it went very well. I couldn't be more pleased with how I'm feeling postoperatively. Dr.Petrov and his staff provide utmost quality care.

    Dr. Petrov was very kind, professional and caring. He explained everything so I could understand it and took his time with me. I would highly recommend Dr. Petrov to any one. He has my complete faith and confidence in his abilities. And just to let you know, you will also love his sense of humor, it helps when your really down. I was in bad shape when I found him and he healed me. I trust him, a lot.
