Dr. London is an awesome surgeon. I had my gallbladder removed by Dr.London. Three things I liked the most from my experience: 1) He explains the procedure [and complications] in terms for his patients to understand. 2) Through out my care, [he had a] friendly attitude. 3) His staff followed up after the procedure to ensure that I am recovering well.

Dr. London performed my hiatal hernia surgery in Jan 2020. I was unsure about the operation, but very glad I did it. Dr. London was very helpful before during and after the procedure. [He] even called to check on me personally. If I ever have questions, I can actually get direct answers from him and not just a nurse or be put on hold. I highly recommend him if you are needing a surgeon.

Dr. Patel has the most amazing bedside manner. Her advice and feedback throughout my weight loss journey is what has helped me succeed and reach my goals. I had surgery only days before Christmas and Dr Patel and her staff made themselves readily available in case I encountered any problems or had questions. My level of appreciation for Dr. Patel is immeasurable. Not only did my physical health improve but my mental health also improved. For that, I am forever grateful.
