in Ft Worth, TX
I highly recommend Dr. Pettey as a general surgeon. He explained my options in an easily understood way and made sure I knew what to expect from my procedure. He was kind, efficient, and skilled. If I need the services of a general surgeon in the future he'll be my first choice.

Have used Dr. Petty twice. Both times the professionalism and service was no less than excellent. Would definitely use him again if I were to need his services in the future.

Dr. Pettet repaired my husbands inguinal hernis without incident, and with very little post operative pain. He has proved himself to be an efficient and professional General Surgeon and I would (and have) referred my family members to him!

Told my wife to get her ob's approval for the surgery and then told us after we got it approved to find someone else because he wasn't doing it. Thanks for wasting our time and leaving my wife in pain!
