Dr. Blessing was outstanding. He took his time with me and made sure I understood everything about my surgery. He answered all my questions. He did an excellent surgery. I’m very impressed with his skills and knowledge.

I had bilateral hernia repairs. It was a great experience from beginning to end. It seemed that I was his only patient. All of my questions were thoughtfully answered. My experience was just as was expected.
in My Pleasant, SC |
Dr. Blessing removed my gallbladder laparoscopically. He has done over 3000 of these type surgeries. He is very personable and you can tell he is a perfectionist. My 4 incision marks are nearly invisible. The nurses at the hospital all highly respected him, which in my mind is always very telling. He worked hard to put me at ease and to answer any questions I had. Highly recommend.
