"I went in this year for an appendectomy and had Dr. Kazil perform surgery. She did a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable and understand what was going to happen. I was very pleased as well with my small incision’s and how quick my surgery was over. I believe because of her I felt much better and had a fast recovery! If I need any more surgery in the future I will definitely be calling Dr. Kazil again! "
"Dr. Erbella, and his staff, couldn't have provided a better experience when facing surgery. He takes the time to explain the process, the procedure, and options in such a way that is calming to us and confident in his skill.\r
We highly recommend him."
