He's a good Surgeon but was CLEARLY in a hurry. Had to stop him twice to ask questions. I know he's a cancer surgeon and has patients with much more serious issues than mine but I was still concerned and was frustrated to feel rushed.

Dr. Reid is fabulous. He has been very good about explaining to me, in terms I understand, the procedures along the way. He sat down with me and answered any questions I had. I am forever grateful to Dr. Reid and his staff throughout my whole procedure. They were fabulous.
