I just wanted to write about this wonderfull Dr. He had to do emergency surgery on my husband almost 20 years ago for his gall bladder. he took a long time but he saved his life. I would recommend him to anyone considering surgery. He has a great bedside manner also. He is so caring and took the time to explain what he had done. Then just this last month my husband goes into the Er with a hernia rupture. He was full of gangrene also . Dr removed it and part of his intestine. Once again he took time to explain everything. My husband was almost lost on the table. He told him to never have surgery unless it is an emergency. He was so nice to us both and showed that he is kindhearted and really does care for his patients.
