Between Dr. McGough and Dr Silvaggio they have been great including me in the decisions, explaining what is to be done, what I should expect. I would give both gentlemen the highest marks.

Dr. McGough made time for us when his schedule was full. My cancer has returned and my husband and I felt we needed to discuss this situation with him. We are so thankful he is our surgeon.
