Great Compassion

He is a very compassionate doctor. He wants to make sure that the surgery is a necessity instead of just operating on you because you were referred. He has great bedside manner and is very matter of fact.

Friendly doctor, friendly nurse, friendly receptionist, everyone here was just so friendly! I will recommend Dr. Stephens to anyone who needs a surgeon. He made sure I fully understood everything before I left his office. Overall a wonderful experience during a not so wonderful situation. You don't have to wait a long time for a follow up appointment, either.
