What Our Patients Are Saying

Theresa Sheehan

"Dr Afaneh is an excellent surgeon with excellent bedside manner. I had an emergent surgery and he was very attentive to my needs. He and his terrific staff checked in with me over the next few days as I recuperated at home. I highly recommend him for any general surgery."

"He is attentive to my needs. Takes his time to explain what are my options and what are the pros and cons to everything. Always have someone from his staff available if I have any questions. The best decision I ever made was seeking help from him and his highly competent staff."

"I have sent several of my friends and my son to Dr. Afaneh in the past 2 years. As a bile duct cancer survivor who has undergone radical suregery, chemo, etc. , I only considered a highly experienced bariatric/hernia surgeon. Not only does Dr. Afaneh take the time to explain in simple terms what he thinks needs to be done but he does it in a highly pleasant manner!"
