“A recent patient who had surgery by Dr. Yelenich-Huss shared with the SGS team what a very pleasant experience she had.  She said she felt so well cared for. She said everyone throughout the whole process was so nice to her, and she learned so much.”

“Over the past two weeks, whenever someone close to me asked how my surgery went, I always told the same truth. If any surgical experience can be called great, then this was it. From the moment I met Shelly at my consultation, I knew I was in good hands. The entire team, through the entire process, were warm, patient, professional, and that made me feel valued and at ease. Mostly, Dr. Kemp, I’m grateful to you. Deeply grateful for how generous you were with your time; for how seriously you took my concerns, as well as those of my family; for your kindness and strength. Yours was a level of care that I won’t forget. Thank you so much!”

“Dr. Kemp took the time necessary to explain the procedures – even drawing pictures, answered all questions.”

“Dr. Gipson was knowledgeable and experienced. His nurse, Liz, has always been caring and gracious and prompt in communicating with me regarding questions and concerns.”

“Wonderful first time experience. Everyone was kind and attentive to me. Dr. Bowen was very helpful and explained everything clearly. Scheduling was simple and the people assisting me were great! Thank you for the great service today.”

“Dr. Jenabzadeh provided me at all times with information and responses to all my questions and concerns. At all times I had great confidence in him and that he was providing the best care possible.”
