Our surgical practice has an established reputation in South Florida of providing the highest level of surgical care based on our surgeons’ training, knowledge, experience, clinical judgement, and technical expertise. Our practice has expanded over time and incorporates new and safe techniques as they are deemed beneficial to patient care.

General surgery is a demanding specialty due to the breadth of knowledge, depth of experience, long, rigorous training, and continuing education that is required to practice it. Our surgeons work closely together to provide the best comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, before and after hours, on weekends, and on holidays. Patients and their referring doctors know that we personally see our patients and manage the nuances of their surgical care in and out of the operating room. It is important to us that our patients have one-to-one encounters with their surgeons to improve communication and understanding and to facilitate a smooth recovery.

Our friendly office staff is here to assist you in scheduling your appointments and arranging any tests, referrals, or procedures that are needed. A general surgery practices runs differently that a primary care provider’s office. We know that your time is valuable and waiting in a doctor’s office is not one of your favorite pastimes. We acknowledge that from time to time, unexpected delays can occur due to the nature of some patients’ illnesses. Emergencies may arise and require your surgeon’s attention. If this should occur during your visit, we ask for your understanding. Rest assured that your time with your surgeon will be unhurried and attentive to your concerns. We provide the same high-level care to all of our patients.
