What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr Fahey was very patient and very clearly explained the procedure, a needle biopsy of the thyroid. I was very apprehensive but he calmed me down and I barely felt anything. His staff was very nice and his nurse practitioner, Erin, was very thorough and caring. My wife accompanied me for the visit and procedure and we both agreed that not only would we use him if surgery was necessary, but we would recommend him to anyone who needed a surgeon with his skills."
"Dr. Afaneh is a wonderful surgeon and caring doctor. I had a bariatric surgery an year ago and he did great job. I was out of hospital and doing my on meals in two days, after surgery pain was so minimal I didn't take any pain medication. He and his team guided me with all steps before and after surgery. I lost 85 lb. So far. They monitoring my bloodwork every 3 months.I would recommend Dr. Afaneh to my friends and family. Couple my friends already asked me were I had done my operation and I gave them Dr.Afaneh's phone number. Thank you Dr. Afaneh."
