“Mr Faris performed an emergency laparoscopy on me two weeks ago. He called me the night before to speak to me while I was in the hospital (I was admitted late in the evening and surgery was scheduled for the next morning). He provided very clear information and I felt safe. He performed an excellent surgery - I have recovered well and the incisions are tiny. Following the procedure, he called to check in several times. I am indebted to him for his care and humbled that he saved me from internal bleeding. Thank you very much Mr Farris, on behalf of myself and my family. “
