I had a thyroidectomy, and luckily it was scheduled with Dr. Purkert. Very nice man, explains everything surgery very well...all the details and why it needs to be done. He did a great job with my incision, scar is very tiny. I ended up having papillary carcinoma of the thyroid... so very happy I got it done! He also removed 3 lymph nodes that were cancerous, which was great for him to check because I would've had to have had surgery again in the future if he didn't remove them.
