Dr. T. Childers is an outstanding surgeon who is extremely knowledgeable on the latest laparoscopic techniques as he performed an inguinal hernia repair on me. Greta job doctor! He is a non-nonsense doctor at his office at well as at the hospital... saw him in action - outstanding character. Will answer all your questions until you're satisfied. However, I have to mention his office personnel leaves to be desired requiring lots of coordination; that is why my 4-star rating, otherwise is a 5+.

Dr. T Childers is a great surgeon. He performed an emergency surgery on my husband, who was in critical condition and the diagnostic results were not conclusive. Thanks to Dr. Childers' excellent professional skills, my husband's life was saved. During the hospital stay (10 days) Dr. Chilres demonstrated very good bedside manners, and he really took care of my husband. He also explained everything patiently and answered all of our questions. Same experience during the post surgery follow-up.
