Dr. Ryan Fields did my surgery for a malignant Pheochromocytoma in 2013 and have followed up with MRI's every 6 months and now on a yearly basis. In May of 2015, I also had a benign liver cyst removed. I was very pleased with Dr. Fields for both procedures and would recommend him to any friend or family member who needed a highly skilled surgeon. Judy Schaaf-Wheeler, Ironton, Missouri

Dr Fields is pleasant, but WAY over emphasizes himself, for example, saying he “has done hundreds of these surgeries” when in reality he hasn’t done any! He has procrastinated on doing a malignant Pheochromocytoma, dragging things out for three & a half months & yet to be scheduled. I’m looking for a competent Adrenal surgeon!

Had a great experience with Dr. Fields last year. He removed cancer from my liver. Now the cancer is back and I am over due for a repeat CT scan. I have called his office 3 times and they won't return my calls. Knowing there is cancer in your body is devastating and to not get calls returned is upsetting. I'll give it another day then I will have to find another surgeon. It's heartbreaking that they do t care about how I'm feeling.
