Patient Reviews
Feb 01, 2024
At 75, the most positive surgical procedure I’ve ever had. Went to hospital feeling good and within 24 hours came out of the hospital feeling good. No side effects, virtually NO pain, no complications and very little medical care needed post surgery. The procedure was performed robotically. The anesthesiologists (2) were wonderful as well. I shared my concerns regarding the injection of propofol with the burning sensation and requested a slight modification. They follow through and were wonderful, no burning sensation. Dr. Makhoul is clearly outstanding! I would highly recommend him as a doctor/surgeon. Dr. Makhoul is wonderful!Bill Snipes
