What Our Patients Are Saying


"I had a great telehealth visit and will be having surgery on 12/24/20. This doctor made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions and explained my condition in detail in layman’s terms so I could understand it."

"Dr. Dakin is the best surgeon in the world. Period. He took my gallbladder out and he did such a good job that not one of the awful scary things I read about online happened to me. It was a perfect experience. Almost no pain and my scars healed up so perfect that you can’t even see them. He is simply the best. I am so thankful for him and his entire team for helping me. Forever grateful."
