THE BEST

Dr. Oommen is a Godsend. He is an excellent surgeon, is kind, caring, compassionate, dedicated, calming, has a great sense of humor and a wonderful bedside manner. Whenever I saw him he made me feel as if I were his only patient. As my cardiologist said, "you won't find a better surgeon or a finer man, and I totally agree. I had to go through colon cancer surgery and he was with me though it all, and still is. He responded to my emails both pre- and post-surgery and has even called me at home several times, staying on the phone until all my questions were answered and fears allayed. If you have to go through any type of colorectal surgery, Dr. Oommen should be your surgeon.

Five Stars

Dr Oommen is the preeminent colon rectal surgeon in this area. Ask any other doctor or nurse and they will all recommend him. Very personable and approachable. Exceedingly skillful. I know. I rated ease of appointment low because he is so busy with patients.

Simply, The Best

My family has a lot of experience with a lot of doctors - and Dr. Oommen doesn't rank among them - he soars above them all! He possesses all of the qualities one would combine if creating the ideal physician/surgeon: brilliant, skilled, professional, kind, compassionate, empathetic, dedicated, responsive, flexible, calm, gentle, humble, polite, and a delightful sense of humor. I could go on and on. It didn't take long to experience first-hand why he has such a pristine reputation. You are blessed if you, or one of your loved ones, are one of his patients.
