Communication was clear and easily understood. Surgery went well. Dr. Duerksen and staffs at the office and at surgery center were friendly and helpful. Answered all questions. A printed copy of procedure and following self-care was provided (and needed). Once again, precise, clearly written and understandable. No issues. Will recommend.
