What Our Patients Are Saying

Learn more about our patients’ experiences at American Fibroid Centers.

This was the best experience I have had in such a long time and I have had quite a few procedures in the past both in patient and out including the procedure I was currently present for. No other surgeon has been so kind, transparent, and gentle. Not only did he personally come out beforehand to provide me with education on my procedure, but he talked me through every step of the way and made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Not to mention his amazing staff! Despite being extremely nervous they kept me smiling and laughing throughout the whole process. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you so much guys!!

Staff nice, not too long of wait. Doctor listened well , not rushed. Looked at US of right leg on disk from different place. (I assume) told me ok they don’t need further testing. My only complaint and this goes for 90% of doctors these days they never really examine you physically and I hate that. Even Primary Dr seems to just hand out referrals that take weeks to get appointments and weeks more for tests usually. If something serious You won’t know till too late. But overall 4 out 5. I would recommend.
21:39 24 Feb 22

Nurses were friendly didn’t have to come back a second time to have test done did it rite then, doctor explain everything set up appointment to have procedure done and I’m very confident in the doctor
