Surgery in Texas

Our primary mission is to take care of you and to assist you in all aspects related to your surgery or condition. Visits to the doctor can cause anxiety, and our job is to alleviate your fears and help you return to health as quickly as possible. While you may need surgery or additional testing to help you improve your quality of life, we will only recommend these courses of treatment if they are in your best interest.

Feel free to ask questions. We are here to help! Contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.

Family Involvement:

We strive to take care of your family and to build long-lasting relationships with the people around us. We understand that your family may have questions about your treatment, and we encourage family members to come along for office visits and to ask questions. While you are recovering from your surgery, your family members will be our eyes and ears. As such, we strongly encourage them to become a part of the surgical process, educating themselves on what’s expected after surgery, and recognizing the progress and/or concerns associated with post-operative recovery.

We would also like to extend the same level of care for your family. If your family should ever need help treating a condition such as abdominal pain or appendicitis, please call our office, preferably before going to the emergency room. Many times, we can speed up the evaluation and help you avoid long waits in the ER.
