I liked him very much. Felt at ease with him. He took very good care of me, I came in through the ER with bad stomach pains they found a blockage was admitted to hospital able to get blockage out with a tube up and through my nose into my stomach that got out what was in there so no surgery but he still checked on me everyday I was there!! Wish there were still a lot of doctors like him that do truly care for their patients!!! Thank you Dr. Metropol!!

Dr. Metropole performed an emergency appendectomy laproscopically. I was very pleased with his professionalism, demonstrated skill, and quality of post-operative care. He was geniunely concerned and followed my recovery to the very end. I would recommend him without hesitation. There are very few doctors left of his caliber practicing medicine for the right reasons and they are getting harder to find. Thank you Dr. Metropole.
