My entire experience could not have been better. He creates a relationship with the patients and truly cares about their well-being and it shows in every action taken in that office. I am SO thrilled with the results, the work these men did will be giving me a whole new life, one without so much pain and full of so much long forgotten promise. They go above and beyond on every level, from the bed side, to operating room. – Kirby P. (Healthgrades)
Dr. Victor did my appendectomy and as far as surgery goes, it was a breeze! I was home the next day and completely back to normal within a week. He also has great bedside manner and put me at ease throughout the whole process. Everyone in the hospital and OR told me that I was getting their favorite surgeon which was very comforting and well deserved! Thank you for taking such good care of me, Dr. Victor! – Lacy W.

Dr. Victor did a lumpectomy on me, which was a simple procedure at Seton Hospital. But, was really impressed me over the other surgeon I checked out was that he was very thorough at my visits and spent much more time with me explaining what my options were and answering my questions. He is also extremely kind, patient and competent. He was highly recommended by my gynecologist, so he has a great reputation in the medical community. Also, all the nurses at Seton that took care of me before and after my surgery spoke very highly of him! – Anita L. (Yelp)
He had a very polite, caring manner and most of all did a great job on this simple procedure – placing a port-o-cath. – Shane M. (Yelp)
He is awesome. If you need surgery go to him. He’s very likeable and trustworthy. Not that I ever want to have surgery again, but if I do he will be the guy to go to! – Tara U. (Yelp)
