"I have never found a doctor that was so smart and keeps up with everything like he was. He searched until he found me the number 4 doctor in the United States." He wanted to send me to the number one doctor but they were too far. Now after the surgery, I go to him for follow up appointments. He is very caring. He is wonderful. If I have questions and I have to call and leave a message, they will always call right back.

"
charged us over $84,000 for TWO of its surgeons (why two?) to do a 45-minute, emergency laparascopic appendectomy on my 15-year-old son." Take a close look at that number. EIGHTY-FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS. Forty-two thousand for one surgeon, and forty-two thousand for another surgeon. This is independent of the hospital and emergency-room charges. This is just for each of the surgeons. No facility. The best part is that, within a month of getting our bill,
sent us to collections. If this is what you are looking for in a surgeon, good luck. This has been our nightmare. It has pretty much torn my family apart, ruined our finances, and caused great suffering.

Fractured my left ankle last summer and went to St.

at Buffalo Orthopedics. He was very nice and knew what he was doing. I needed to go to surgery that night to have the ankle put into place and surgery about a week later to have a plate and screws put in to fix the break. I am a diabetic so this was a problem for me. Dr.
Normal General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
did a great job in putting my ankle together and then referred me to physical therapy. He is very caring and is very prompt with his appointments. He is now treating me for trigger finger and the cortisone injection helped a lot. He did a great job with the surgery and I am happy to be walking again. Office staff is wonderful too.

Dr.

was kind, caring, and an excellent patient educator. if I require surgery on the chest, I would certainly use him.
There is an old medical aphorism that "The patient must know that you care before they care what you know". Dr

Dr.

helped me through a very tough time with an eye issue, which thank goodness has now resolved.
His care and responses to my concerns and ongiong anxiety was nothing like I had experienced in my life. This is what a doctor does and is - cares, responds and honestly reassures.

While developing a very deep and painful infection under the skin and having it surgically opened is not my idea of fun, my experience with Dr.
Normal General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was wonderful. Even though I was in a lot of pain by the time I saw her, she made me feel comfortable and at ease. After examining me, she was very forthright about my options and how each one would play out. I chose to have the in-office procedure performed and was grateful when Dr.
Normal General Surgeons Provider Name Locked
did not beat around the bush regarding what to expect in terms of initial pain and recovery. She has a gentle though direct bedside manner, which I found to be incredibly helpful in preparing myself for the procedure and realities of healing and wound care. I felt well taken care of and fully confident in her ability. All of the nurses and staff I interacted with were friendly, from my initial procedure through my final follow-up appointment. I am uninsured and the price of the procedure, wound care, and follow-up visits was incredibly fair. While I hope I don't have to return, I would recommend Dr.

Dr. Vopal is a skilled surgeon. Top notch in his field-the very best. He is compassionate and will take as much time with you as needed. With test results he calls you personally on his own time. We were brand new to the area when my husband needed surgery. Dr.

was the name we were given and thankfully chose to use. He is also very caring to the patients family. He takes the time to speak with you before and after surgery. I as the patient's wife knew my husband was in good skilled hands and felt at ease while waiting for the surgery to be done.

They turned a small, inexpensive procedure into a $5,000 cost because they used out of network providers.
I had a nurse anesthetist sedate me who didn't take my Hiumana insurance and his billing company billed me $2,300. The surgeon only charged $370 but the nurse got $2,300. The hospital chose the anesthetist, I had no choice and didn't know he didn't accept my insurance.
Months later I got another bill for 3,400 from a laboratory in Georgia. The surgery center sent my skin node to them for evaluation and they too were not a Humana provider. I had no idea, nor choice, that they sent my node to a Georgia lab that was not in the Humana network!
Before my suregry the finance office people made me pay for all of the charges that weren't covered and they assured me that everything else would be covered by my insurance. When I got these out-of-network bills they changed their story and told me that they don't have a responsibility to use in-network providers. They're nasty, rude people.
Stay away form the

if you have insurance because they will do whatever they want and it will cost you thousands.

Surgery went very well , very good office, which was friendly atmosphere. Very good bedside manner , thorough but brief . Fast uneventful recovery wit good follow up visit.

The procedure itself worked, which is amazing considering the time into this whole experience and the lack of healing at first. It took an entire year to heal and look better from the outside. I had to be re-stitched. I had to shower with garbage bags on my legs for the entire summer. They got infected. I had to go to a wound center for about 5 weeks to heal up from this procedure that the brochure said should take 1-3 days to feel good after each procedure and there were 4 separate surgeries. Would NOT advise anyone to go to him.
