I'm sorry that you felt it necessary to libel me, even though you have never been to my office. As you can read from other patients' experienced, my Office and I pride ourselves in the caring and expert services we provide for all your hernia specialty needs. We don't force anything on our patients. That would be uncharacteristic of how we treat our patients. Meanwhile, I hope you found a surgeon who can meet your needs.
