Patient Comments (10)

I ended up having to have multiple hernia surgeries because he did a poor job. After having the third one done by another surgeon it is clear that he is careless and inexperienced. Go somewhere else if you want it done right the first time.

He makes it a point to ask if all of my questions have been answered every time we’ve seen him. He explained the surgery very thoroughly to me and has also been very thorough at all of my follow up visits.
