Dr, Sarantou has surgically removed cancerous tumors from me on two occasions. His demeanor and skill are second to none. Hopefully, two is the charm, but would want him to do any future surgeries.!

I unfortunately required Dr. Sarantou's specialized services on a couple of occasions. I was very pleased with his bedside manner and general demeanor. He inspired my trust. Although I hope to never again have the need, I wouldn't hesitate to call his office for assistance.

Dr Sarantou and his staff are so amazing. I’ve had 4 surgeries with him and he has done an excellent job every time. I was afraid that I would look deformed after each surgery but he did the most amazing job making me look like normal. If it wasn’t for the incision site, you couldn’t even tell that I had any tissues removed. I’m so happy I’m his patient. I would highly recommend him.

I can't say enough about Dr. Satantou who performed my lumpectomy surgery. He is an amazing surgeon that is very skilled, extremely knowledgeable in his field and one who genuinely cares about his patients! He takes the time to personally respond to any health related questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sarantou!
