Dr. Lakshman and his assistant Christina are very very professional, caring providers. Dr. Lakshman explained in detail my medical condition and what to expect after surgery. Also has an excellent bedside manner! I highly recommend Dr. Lakshman.

Dr. Lakshman was my surgeon for the removal of a rectal tumor using the davinci system. At every appointment he was very thorough in explaining my condition and the steps I would be going through to get disease/cancer free. I never felt rushed when asking questions and his staff was always quick to reply to my calls. I would recommend Dr. Lakshman to anyone who needs colon or rectal surgery.
