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.
