"She made my procedure as painless and easy as possible and talked me through everything that was going to happen. I could have gone anywhere for this surgery and" know excellent surgeons at
and other NY hospitals - but I am so happy I stayed in Ridgewood and used Dr.
. You will not be disappointed with her results. She is in very high demand, so be sure to bring reading materials to keep you occupied in the waiting room of her office as there is usually a fairly long wait to see her. One small downside for tremendous results.

"Dr.
arrived and put me at ease by explaining the proper way to administer the special guidewire procedure for difficult catheterizations." He did a great job. Friendly and efficient.

He was very pleasant and very willing to answer all of my questions and concerns. The office is well organized and the entire staff is pleasant. His service was delightful and I will continue to see him for my needs.

He had to perform a partial thyroidectomy. He was professional, confident and calmed me from the beginning. He let me know that he has done this so many times that he was not at all concerned and neither should I be. The surgery was a huge success and I barely have a scar (everyone I know says they don't even notice it). I have referred one other person to him and she was equally happy with the results. He is a truly gifted man.

While my bite is better, it is still not correct. In fact, it is still so off that I am considering finding another orthodontist and surgeon and doing the whole thing all over again. |Also, I went into surgery with no problem, but came out with a nasty scrape on my chin. It scarred, and is a rather ugly slash on my chin to this day. From the moment I came out of surgery, they have claimed to not know what happened.

Dr
Escondido General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and all the office staff are wonderful. She shows true professionalism, compassion and care for her patients. Once she was late for my appointment due to being held up at the hospital, and apologized for being late stating my time was important also. I had never had a doctor do that before. I would highly recommend this office and would certainly use again. I know many others that have had only positive experiences there.

She did an incredible job. Dr.
Escondido General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is highly skilled, personable, and very reassuring. I have seen her a few times over the past year to address this issue. I initially had a large, inflamed, and infected cyst. Since the area is highly visible, I wanted the work completed by a plastic surgeon. Many recommended Dr.
Escondido General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. Now I know why. You can't find a more patient-oriented surgeon. She really, actually, truly cares.
I have been a RN for over 25 years. My area of expertise is managing physician quality. I taught quality and patient sensitivity at Medical School. This is a surgeon who gets it. Would I recommend her? ABSOLUTELY!!! She is the best!

It went well. The office was really efficient. He was very professional. They didn't really have handicap access to the basement, so if you're handicap please ask beforehand. That is the only reason why I won't go back.

Dr.
Escondido General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
said recovery would take 6 months. Recovery took 1 year and 9 months. Most patients may take 6 months to heal, but on line I'm finding out a large percentage take a year or longer to heal. I understand that doctors tend to promote their own procedures more than other possibly more advantageous alternative procedures. The problem with a brand new procedure like LINX is that it is actually promoted in a way that tends to gloss over the negative details like the degree of pain involved in 6 months recovery - WHICH CAN BE AS BAD AS THE GERD CONDITION IT WAS SUPPOSED TO HEAL. Plus no long term information over 5 years is available - complications long term could arise. With Laparoscopic Fundoplication long term compications are minimal though they do exhist.|Also, Dr.

never emphasized diet except to suggest eating low fat meats including Filet
Escondido General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
, White Meat Turkey and Pork. Everything else was ok. This was wrong! HE SHOULD HAVE EMPHASIZED EATING SMALL AMOUNTS! Over and over I got Esophagitis from eating large amounts and not chewing sufficiently and the doctor never mentioned this until 6 months after the procedure. The pain I went thru for 6 months alone was excruciating - intense esophageal pressure and pain, throat spasms, shortness of breath, fatigue, over all I was in pain 50% of the time on and off for 1 year and 8 months. I would have opted for either (A) no operation and just dealing with GERD or (B) go for the tested and I believe more successful "Laproscopic Funduplication".|I have 10 pages of organized, dated recovery notes if you're interested detailing the good and bad of this procedure.
