Dr Pakraftar is now working at Maine General Medical Center in Augusta, ME. I would 100% recommend him. My daughter is severely handicap. He removed a cancer area in my daughter colon. He did an awesome job! Her stitches look great. He is kind and extremely Knowledgeable. He talked to her. Like he said she is the most important person. I just answered the questions (she can't talk). She was one of the first surgeries he was in charge of. If I need surgery he will be the one I go to.
