Review of Dr. Solh
Dr. Solh was my surgeon for a sigmoidectomy and was incredible. He was able to do it robotically and is very skilled and knowledgeable about the large intestine. He is an excellent communicator, explained the procedure and recovery using terms I understood, and took extra care in checking in with me even after I was released from the hospital. I would highly recommend him to my closest family and friends.

Anyone I believe is uncomfortable with having a rectal exam. I have never been treated so kind and had the sense everyone cared so much about you!! The doctor is amazing, the staff... everyone was just so pleasant. I wish this place would reach others how they do things.

After two misdiagnosis from gastroenterologists, Dr. Solh finally gave me a diagnosis for all my years of suffering. Great bedside manner, and very thorough. Highly recommend him and Dr. Shaheen!

My first experience with Dr. Solh was 7 years ago. He saved my life! I had 5 bowel constrictures an open wound from a previous botched surgery, fissures, the works. I have had issues since then, the most current one month ago. I refuse to talk to any other doctors/surgeons but him. He got me better once more. I adore this man, his communication with me; could not ask for more in a physician!

He saved my life in 2014. Gave up his labor day weekend and operated on me with colon cancer which has moved to my appendix. He is great. Bright,compassionate and totally buttoned up. I'm alive because my pal Jerry Schell sent me there.

This is what Dr. Sohl performed on me, colon resection, colostomy takedown, abdominal wall reconstruction, and 5 hernia repairs. He is a very "to the point" physician and some times a little frosty but still very caring and an incredibly knowledgably and talented surgeon! So who would you rather have operating on you, someone who you can trust with your health and wellbeing or someone friendly?

He was nearly killed my mother because of his lack of attention and staff laziness. DO NOT have him operate on you, he says all the right things at the pre op appointments then he is disappears and his staff all think they are doctors and can make important medical decisions wo even contacting a doctor. Just BE WARNED he is awful

Absolute worst experience with a doctor in my life. Refused to look at my MRI+Xrays and didnt care what I had to say about my pains and concerns. He spent 4 minutes in my room with me and then "diagnosed" me with what he thought was right and charged me $125. Thankfully after visiting another doctor who listened to my issues he was able to send me to a chiropractor to begin fixing my issues. Had he just listened to me and looked at the documents he could have helped fix my issues. He's Arrogant!

Seems irritated with the pt if they have any complications, even if its not related to the surgery. Lacks empathy and the ability to truly listen to a PTs concern. I'm glad my primary Dr had my back on 2 seperate occasions or I could have become very ill. I guess it wasn't IBS, not everything/everyone is IBS
