"This is my second surgery with Dr Shou for different operations over 10 years. I would not trust or have confidence in anyone else. He is meticulous! Clearly communicates with the patient but best of ALL with your family immediately after surgery . Kind and gracious! Great follow up to make sure all went well. I highly recommend Dr Shou IF of course you need his services. Great team!"

"Dr. Narayan was thoughtful, patient, caring, and took the time to explain everything to me in easy-to-understand detail. I could tell he genuinely cared for my well-being and helping me get back on a healthy track. I hope to not have to visit the hospital again anytime soon, but I would certainly come back to him and his team again."
