Had to have emergency surgery that Dr Khoury performed. My family could not get to the hospital during the surgery so Dr Khoury called my daughter after to let her know how it went. He has an awesome bedside manner. Would highly recommend Dr Khoury!!!!!!

I was referred to Dr. Khoury by my General Physician for gall bladder surgery. Dr. Khoury performed two additional tests to be certain it was the gall bladder causing pain under my ribcage. The tests confirmed that the gall bladder needed removal. The process for the surgery was absolutely seamless, the recovery uneventful and after two weeks I feel better than ever. Veronica and the office staff were there to answer any questions and Dr. Khoury is one of the most professional physicians I have met. I truly appreciate their efforts to alleviate my concerns about surgery and help in getting through the process.

Dr. Khoury has been awesome. When I was in pain, he did not just look for the easiest way snd then shoo my out the door. He took the time to come see, monintor me for multiple days and then preform the surgery. During the visit to the hospital, one of the nurse came in and said "Man your surgeon is on top of it." That really helped ease any of the tension I felt before the surgery.

Dr. Khoury is an outstanding surgeon. I had an emergency appendectomy and he was my surgeon. As a surgeon, he is the best. His followup care and staff went beyond. Always available to see me, or quickly address my questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Khoury.

This was my first surgery in many years. It turned out to be minor, however, he made the whole thing seem easy. I had all the info I needed, questions were answered, bedside manner was awesome. It's obvious he loves what he does. I'll go back to him for anything else I need.

Dr. Khoury and Veronica are an excellent Surgeon/Nurse Combination. Both excel at their professions, and it is so nice to be able to rely on surgeon and staff to take the time to return your calls and answer all your questions. You really get the feeling that they genuinely care about their patient's.
