I couldn’t have received better care!! Please recognize Nurse Lauren, Dr. Dillon, Nurse Gina, Dr. Silverstein and all staff. Mar 2021
Everyone was very helpful, courteous, and competent. Everyone explained my procedure and what I should expect from beginning to end. Dr. Silverstein and I had a virtual follow-up to the surgery 2 days later. I was very pleased with the people who helped me and the outcome of my surgery. Beverly P. Feb 2021
