Dr. Searles saved my life! I had a gallbladder attack and had a stone stuck on my bile duct. He performed surgery on me right away after he spoke to me. I was suffering for months in Fairbanks . Doctors in fairbanks completely suck. Anyway, was professional and so nice! Other physicians in fairbanks like dr. Michael reeves rave about his skill and professionalism. He is the best bariatric doctor and his staff rock!
