This visit was insufferable. Didn't help us and when we tried to explain what was going. He ignored us and called the doctor and told him verbatim "why is this guy in my office?". We came to find an answer but instead got pushed away. I hope we can find a new surgeon in the Mount Sinai system that can actually listen and be helpful and not have an attitude or seem like we wasted his time. We will not be coming back

Great experience! I was so impressed - and felt so much better after my inguinal hernia surgery - that I would have hugged Dr Unger during my follow up visit if it wasn’t for Covid safety precautions. Highly recommend he and his team.

Dr. Unger was the surgeon who inserted the dialysis fistulas when I had renal failure over three years ago. I ended up deciding to have peritoneal dialysis and he cautiously placed another connection in the arm one for hemodialysis. My dialysis nurse was impressed and said I had an excellent doctor who was anticipating for any unexpected problems. After my kidney transplant, going for a year and a half now, have not had any problems at all, I was cleared to remove the fistula in my arm, thank God. And Thank you Dr. Unger for your expert care, kind demeanor and clear answers to my questions.

The hernia repair went well. The only question I have is how long does it take for the tissue to grow into the mesh. Thanks, Manuel de Cardenas.
