Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Nuwayhid did my umbilical hernia surgery and everything was perfect. He is a very professional, personable and caring physician. If I ever decide to go for bariatric surgery, I would have no qualms at all about having him do the surgery. He's a great doctor. Thank you, Dr. Nuwayhid!
