Great Surgeon

I met Dr. Alame at 2:30 am when I needed emergency hernia surgery. I was scared and he made me feel very comfortable and the result was excellent. My abdomen then got an seroma, Dr. Alame had to surgically repair that with good results and just recently I had to have a scar revision because of the way I scar. I am at home and the scar looks amazing. I trust him completely and look forward to our visits.

Amazing Surgeon!

This was the first time I had ever needed to have surgery in the colorectal area. I have Crohns disease and needed to have a fistula taken care of. Dr. Alame and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable all the way through to my follow up appointment. I just had to make another appointment regarding a abscess and I know I will get the best care possible! Thank you Dr. Alame!!!!

Amazing surgeon #1 in Michigan

Best surgeon in colo-rectal, digestive surgeries. I have Crohns and he treated me with respect. I was a human, a person, not a chart or patient number. He truly cares for those he treats.
