"My husband got a referral to see Dr. Afaneh and he is so glad he was able to see him. He has given him hope that he will be able to finally once and for all get rid of his meds for his Hyena hernia and ulcers in his esophagus that he has been suffering from for 20 years. Dr. Afaneh was extremely professional and knowledgeable with this field and we feel that my husband is in the right hands with taking care of him. The nurse practitioner Natasha is so very nice and is there to answer any of you questions and concerns you may have. She went out of her way to make sure my husband Mike knew exactly what he needed to do before his procedure. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends."
