Mill Valley, CA |
Dr Ryan successfully removed a large Salivary Gland tumor from my face and below my ear. I can't believe it went so well. Two months later I have only a small scar underneath my ear to show for a complicated four hour surgery. I have full use of all my facial motions. Even every hair of my beard survived the surgery. Dr Ryan is not only a phenomenal surgeon, but he is a very good and caring person. Called and checked on me before and after my surgery. Wonderful outcome. Thanks, Dr Ryan!

I simply can't express in words all what Dr. Ryan has done for me prior to, during and after the surgery. It was cancer and everything had to happen at fairly fast pace. Every evening Dr. Ryan called me and we spoke about what had happened and what was going to happen next. He made me feel like I was completely in control the decision process of what was and what was not going to happen to my body during a most difficult period. I walked in to that hospital and Dr. Ryan with cancer and I walke

Dr Ryan was very thoughtful and informative. He was confident not cocky and very personable. His bedside manner is hard to find these days. I could not have asked for a better surgeon.
