Great surgeon and person
I recently responded to the Valley Hospital Emergency Room with abdominal pain. I soon learned that my gall bladder would have to be removed. Fortunately for me, I was referred to Dr Christoudias. He ensured that he and his team would treat me in a timely manner and take care of all of my medical needs. He, Dr Marta, and their team were kind, considerate, caring, and professional. Took the time to explain the procedure and had great “bedside manner”. May nobody ever need a surgeon, but if you do - I highly recommend Dr Christoudias, Dr. Marta, and their team

Takes no accountability. Not to be trusted.
This rating deserves less than a star, but is the least allowed to post this review. Dr. Chris you días takes no accountability for a surgery he performed on my wife, which made a problem worse, but called me after he completed surgery to tell me how lucky my wife was that she got a tummy tuck as a bonus. My wife did not need a tummy tuck, but what she ended up with was a deformed looking belly button with saggy skin around a poorly completed scar. When she returned after swelling had healed, he told her to massage the area for two months, when she returned again with a hope he would take accountability for a horrible job, and correct it, he simply advised she should find a plastic surgeon. This is not someone you want to put your trust in. I will voice my opinion of this experience on every platform possible to ensure no one ends up in the same predicament my wife finds herself in now. He destroyed her great looking core which she worked so hard on, with no compassion or care. NC

I could not be more pleased with Dr. C & his staff. Having undergone a pretty big surgery I was extremely nervous. Dr. C made me feel comfortable from our first consultation and I knew he'd take care of me. I'm now about a month post op & Dr. C has taken time to explain my recovery and answer all my concerns. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My quality of life has greatly change because of you.

Dr. C did a great job of discussing my condition and how it was affecting my body. Surgery was straightforward and uneventful. Lost 12lbs due to diet change, but he said that is normal. Feel much better now on low fat diet, look better too!

I cannot possibly say enough good things about Dr. Christoudias to do him justice. He performed surgery on me about 5 years ago on what I thought was a recurring pressure sore on my buttocks. When I got out of surgery he told me that it was a lymphocele. A torn lymph node, and for that reason I never would have stopped getting these sores without surgery to repair it. Over the past 5 years, Dr Christoudias has had me have 3 scans to make sure the lymphocele has not returned. A few weeks ago, I went for a visit, and he told me that as far as he is concerned, I should never have another problem with this issue. Dr. Christoudias has ALWAYS taken the time to answer any questions I have had, He has ALWAYS been nothing but positive and reassuring. I can't thank Dr. Christoudias enough for what he has done for me. Although he has officially discharged me, I am keeping his number on file, and if a problem should arise, he is my first call. I would recommend him to ANYONE!

Dr. C. treated my wife like she was the ONLY patient he had and as if she were his own family. He made her feel very comfortable with her surgery and at the followup visit he answered any and all questions we had. Ironically we found out he went to school with our daughter. We would recvomend him to anyone needing the best care.

My mother is a nurse and researched finding a good surgeon. Dr Chrisotudias exceeds all expectations for a great general surgeon. Removed my gall bladder. We recommended a neighbor who was very happy after a triple hernia repair. My father will be getting his hernia repair in early 2018. Thanks to Dr. Christoudias and his staff for excellent care!
