"I had a great experience.. There was no wait the staff was very professional, kind and accommodating.. Dr Dakin was great! gave me the time speak I did not feel rushed . He informed me of what my options are what to expect and what his thoughts are ."
"Dr. Afaneh is incredible. He performed a complex surgery on me, and is getting ready to perform another very soon. It was a wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. Dr Afaneh always takes the time to go over the details of the surgery (both pre and post), and to answer any questions that I have. This ensured that I had a smooth prep, surgery, and follow-up. It is very rare to find a doctor/ surgeon that combines such personal care for their patient with such an outstanding quality of medical knowledge and care. I highly recommend becoming his patient!"
