I really need the super honest part as his patient because I have been on dialysis for almost 20yrs time around and then dealing with end-stage renal failure since I was 13 and I was born with circle kidney so I need someone who is going to be upfront and honest with me and compassion at the same time and he is the ONLY surgeon to get three fistulas working on me! No one in 42 years has ever done that! He is the best surgeon I have ever had! Omg... and his staff is phenomenal !"
