He seems nice. I don’t think his bedside manner is as good as people say. He seemed irritated with me. The visit was short, and I came in early—I didn’t think they’d room me so quickly though. So, maybe that’s what irritated him?. I felt like he didn’t listen to everything I wanted to say, and it stunk. But whatever it’s ok. I hear from others he’s very good.

He is such a character, very energetic and loves his job.

Everyone that met was extremely knowledgeable and kind. My surgeon Dr. Thomas and his team are excellent, the pre-op room nurse Melissa helped me feel comfortable and ease my nerves, the post-op room nurse Kate was so understanding and helpful and made me feel so comfortable, the anesthesiologists that I met were so thorough and kind. There was even a woman that I met once I entered the OR, and I believe her name is Rita, who was so kind and held my hand at the beginning, which is my final and most comforting memory of beginning the procedure. Every single person, even those who I may have forgotten to mention, helped me feel an immense amount of care. I trusted their expertise, and their words and actions allowed me to feel so comfortable and eased all my nerves.
