My husband recently had colon cancer surgery. His care at Methodist was excellent, but even more so was Dr. Belzer. He was very encouraging from the initial visit. His experience and passion for what he does showed in the way he goes treating his patients. He came by EVERY day for six days, sometimes more than once. He kept pain very manageable and his followup care afterwards quite good too. My husband was well prepared and cared for throughout the whole process. So grateful!
