Dr. Caravella performed my hernia repair surgery and I couldn’t be happier. From our first visit he put me at ease and really took the time to go through the entire process with me. The entire staff at his office was very helpful and got everything scheduled quickly. Surgery went smoothly and I was home within a few hours. He personally contacted me several times to check on my recovery.
Dr. Schroer was very thorough with explanations and descriptions of surgery procedure. His professional demeanor gave confidence in the outcome, and we were not disappointed.
Dr. Xu is amazing, deserving of 500 stars if I could. He is open, honest, thorough, and keeps his patient well informed. He is passionate about his work. He gives patient's ample amount of time to ask questions and explains thoroughly in plain English. When mentioning second opinions Dr. Xu is very understanding and will even encourage to do so. He is willing to work with his patient's to aid them in achieving their goals. Overall excellent surgeon, would definitely recommend to family and friends.
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful surgeon this man is. He saved not only my father’s life, but my daughter’s as well. His dedication knows no bounds. We are lucky to have such a gifted surgeon in our area.
