Dr. Nfonsam is the most talented surgeon who genuinely cares personally about his patients. It is easy to tell that he entered this profession to help others. His passion for others is unmatched. I felt that as his patient and have spoken to many others who feel the same way!

Dr. Nfonsam wanted to perform outpatient surgery (very painful) with full anaesthesia for a procedure I am now having done by an doctor in-office with no pain or downtime at all. I feel he was trying to kill a flea with a baseball bat and fortunately decided not to proceed with him.
