What Our Patients Are Saying
We will forever be grateful for Dr Chiweshe after she operated on our newborn baby. She has been clear and concise when explaining to us the procedure and the many steps that followed. Along with being extremely patient and caring.
The Knight in the Shining Armor has a name: Dr. Nitsana Spigland. When your oh-so-expected and already so-so-loved newborn baby is born with a health challenge that requires surgery, it’s like living your worst nightmare. But then Dr. Spigland comes in and literally saves your whole world.
Dr. Kadenhe-Chiweshe performed an emergency appendectomy on my six year old son. She was absolutely lovely. She made my son laugh and made us parents feel really good about the surgery. She’s a true gem.
