First rate

Very pleasant experience from everybody that I met with.

August 03, 2016

This was my first visit so I'm unable to answer some questions. Names of personnel that I recall who assisted in my examination(Tyler and Dr Wang) were professional, helpful and sensitive to my concerns. Dr Martel was also. First impressions count and they made a very good first impression.

July 29, 2016

The fellow came in and did an examination that was repeated by the attending. The examinations were virtually identical. I understand we are a teaching hospital and such things should be expected but it would be good to have been informed.

has always been a great experience

A second doctor saw me first, Tarek Schasyl (sp?). He was very pleasant and excellent in listening to and describing the problem. I was very happy that Dr. Martel was then abel to take care of the problem at the very same visit. Overall an amazing experience in applied technology.

Dr. Martel was very professional took lots of time with me after surgery for f/u. Listened to my concerns. I much prefer him to my first surgeon.
