Patient Comments (2)

He is the go to guy for other doctors involved in more complicated Colo-rectal surgical procedures I was told by more than one nurse. Compassionate, and attentive -always returned my calls by day's end. And just an all around nice guy.

Nice Dr, but bad treatment and surgery, after a year of seeing him, I had to get second opinion, and had surgery corrected!
