Excellent doctor, he performed surgery for an umbilical hernia. When I woke up in recovery he was sitting there observing me. He explained what he did to me in detail, a few days later he called me to see how I was doing. I told him I was experiencing some pain and he asked for me to go to his office in the city the day before he was leaving on vacation.

Excellent, thorough, caring, experienced!! Went even on Holiday to follow up on my 23 yr son admitted for surgery performed on a Pilonidal cyst. Feel very confident in his professional experience. ????
