Dr. Fudge is the best. He performed triple by-pass surgery on me and we were very pleased with every aspect of the surgery: before, during and after. His calm and humble demeanor kept us at ease for the duration of my care under him. I would recommend Dr. Fudge to anyone.

Dr. Fudge provides detail explanation of procedure in advance and shares realistic expectations of what to expect during post surgery recovery. Dr. Fudge's confidence serves to reduce the fear and anxiety of the patient facing major surgery. Dr. Fudge saved my life!
