Dr. Kehdy (and his resident) were wonderful. They actually listened to me and actually used their knowledge and experience to critically think about my care- that's pretty rare these days. Getting surgery is terrifying, but I feel confident with their decisions and with them performing the surgery.

I was actually stunned by the short wait times in both the waiting room and in the exam room. It might have been a fluke, of course, but based on my times in other waiting rooms it was certainly a welcome experience.
