He was great in the consultation - he was up-front and honest about the risks and benefits and setting expectations appropriately.

Great guy and great surgeon. My surgery itself was 7 hours long (TT+MR+BL+BA) but the initial recovery was just fine, and the improvements were clear immediately afterward.

I was low risk, but ended up having some minor complications. He was extremely attentive, saw me in the office on the weekends or evenings when things came up, ended up doing emergency surgery one evening to drain out a hematoma that had formed, spent an hour on the phone figuring out the insurance so that I didn't have to pay a single cent, etc. Through it all I didn't get any sense at all of "The surgery is done so my job is done" - instead he was incredibly caring and attentive to me, expressed his sadness that I ended up having complications, etc...

I just can't recommend him enough. I only wish my GP cared that much about me! :-)
