Dr. Andrews is by far the best doctor I have seen in many years. He was knowledgeable, listened to my concerns, answered my questions, was gentle, spent the time listening to me that I needed, and very caring. I am so glad I saw Dr. Andrews. Cannot say enough good things about him.

I thought Dr. Andrews was excellent. Although I hope never to get my problem again, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate for a second to see Dr. Andrews.

Dr. Andrews performed my hernia on my right side 27 years ago, I was happy to find out he was still practicing , and this hernia on my left side so far has been a great experience as well

This is not the first time I see Dr. Andrews. Every time I saw him, he always listened to my problems and gave me the choices to make on my own. He never pressured me to do anything unless I felt like it. The way he explained my situation was very professional and realistic. For my recent visit with him I feel confident that he would give me the best treatment for my existing problem.

I met with doctor Andrew and he spent time explaining the consequences of the treatment if I needed it. He didn't try to push me to do what I wasn't willing to. I felt really good after discussion with him at length of what I should be doing to get better. I feel at ease with him. He's very understanding and sincere. If I need further treatment in the future I will definitely go back to see him.
