Don't do it

This Dr. removed my gallbladder two years ago and it was the worst medical experience in my life. He has the worst bedside manner I have ever encountered. When I kept complaining of pain, he blew me off. Now I have to see a GI Dr. and pain Dr. on a regular basis because Dr. Eads severed the nerve to my liver. If it were between him and my veterinarian for another surgery, my veterinarian wins hands down. Take my advice, find another doctor.

Dr. Eads is arrogant and makes jokes and off colored comments in serious situations. I was not amused.

Dr. Eades was an excellent sugeon. I went to him upon finding that a foreign body had been left in my leg in an ER visit that occurred four months prior. Dr. Eades saw me on Friday and my surgery was scheduled for that following Monday. He and his staff were wonderful and easy to talk to. Also, after I was out of surgery and in recovery, he was the only surgeon that I noted that came back and actually checked on me and talked to me. The previous ER visit had left me with a horrible scar which Dr. Eades went in through the original scar to remove the foreign body and corrected the scar so that it was pencil thin. I would definitely go to Dr. Eades again without a second thought about it.
