An excellent surgeon who was compassionate and did a fantastic job--performing 2 surgeries on me at the same time for both hernia and gall bladder. A great listener and explainer.

Dr Haggerty performed a traditional hernia repair on me, from all of the horror stories I've heard, my experience was relatively painless and I was back to normal in a few days- playing volleyball again in about 6 weeks. I attribute this to his skill and care.

If your going to write a prescription it would be helpful to write it for a product that exists and...Read More
