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.
