Dr. Chlysta removed my Gallbladder. I had very little pain afterwards and the scars are barely visible after only 3 months. He went over the surgery with me and let me know what should and what could happen. I'm very glad he was my surgeon. Thank You Very Much, Kevin Murphy.

Dr. Chlysta takes every opportunity when speaking with you to be condescending and rude. I do not doubt his skill as a surgeon is superior but for me his attitude ruined my trust in him.
