"This entire office, starting from Dr. Hunt, nurse Patricia and everyone else is amazing. Dr. Hunt performed my surgery flawlessly. I feel amazing now and everyday I'm just thankful for not having any pain (which bothered me for many years). The hospital was top notch and nurses were amazing. I really felt taken care of, with everything being so organized, and I didn't feel any fear of the surgery. Zero. :) Dr. Hunt's main nurse, Patricia, was a life savior during my recovery! Not only she prepared me well for the surgery, but during the 7-10 days of my painful recovery (which was expected and normal), she was returning all my numerous calls, leading me through the steps what to do and not to do. The written instructions she provided were great, but her help over the phone when I most needed it, was priceless. I'm so grateful to her and dr. Hunt! Now a month after the surgery I feel amazing, 100% healthy! Sending lot of love to dr. Hunt, nurse Patricia and the rest of the team!"
"Dr. Simmons is an excellent surgeon. I would recommend her, and her wonderful team, without reservation. I have found them to be caring, responsive, and very, very competent."
"Dr. Halazun is a brave and talented surgeon. When Sloan Kettering would not operate to remove my mother's cancerous gallbladder which had invaded her liver Dr. Halazun performed the 12 hour life saving surgery. My mother is still here, 2 years later, enjoying her grandchildren. She would have certainly died without Cornell and Dr. Halazun."
