    At our office visits, he was very upfront about what I was facing and went over everything, step by step. I left his office knowing exactly what my diagnosis was, what surgery would entail, and what to expect after surgery. At surgery, he went over all the details again, for my husband and family, so that we were all on the same page about what was happening. Great bedside manner, very knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. Highly recommend!
