Patient Reviews
May 04, 2024
Dr G. did an amazing job with my husband’s pre-op care, the operation itself, and post-operative care! He was very thorough, took his time explaining everything to us each time we met even staying with us until 7:30 on a Friday night (for 2.5 hours), and followed up with us every morning and evening after the surgery while in the hospital! He is an amazing doctor who always comes to see his own patients at the hospital daily, listens, and takes pride in his career. They just don’t make doctors like Dr. G. anymore. We highly recommend him to others. Thanks Dr. G!
