  • My wife just went through then entire breast cancer ordeal, and as one of our many caregivers Dr. Askew was just phenomenal.

  • Dr. Askew repaired a hernia for me. I had been putting off getting it fixed for over a year. Dr. Askew was recommended to me by several Austin doctor friends, including surgeons, who said they would use him if they needed a surgeon for themselves. He is very personable, explained everything and did...

  • I simply cannot praise Dr. Askew enough! He is an amazing surgeon and person. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 at age 33, I was terrified and confused. He took me under his wing and made it all seem ok. When I got a second opinion at MD Andersen, the doctors there knew and loved Dr. A...

  • 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 extr...

  • 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...

  • 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 pa...

  • My experience with Dr. Meynig was nothing short of excellent. I saw him over a period of time due to a long-standing illness which needed to be managed surgically and medically. He really took his time to listen to me, and gave me all the information that I needed to make an informed decision on the...

    ~ Petra P ~

  • I was referred to Dr. Jeffrey Meynig for a hernia repair. Dr. Meynig is friendly and funny, and put me at ease before my surgery. He answered all my questions, took time to ensure I was comfortable, and had some great jokes to put me at ease. My surgery went great and they provided me with everythin...

    ~ Victoria G ~

  • I was in Austin TX when I became sick. My plan was to go back to Maryland for Surgery, where I reside fulltime. However, after meeting Dr. Meynig there was no doubt he was the surgeon for me. It was the best decision I made! Dr. Meynig is OUTSTANDING and I would fly anywhere for him. My recovery was...

  • Dr. Abikhaled is a highly skilled and effective surgeon. I had 4 consults before undergoing a non-elective thyroid procedure and chose him…I am glad I did! Now, 3 months post-surgery, my scar is barely visible…expertly hidden and is much smaller than the other doctors suggested. He is thoughtful...

    ~ Alison K ~

  • I could not be happier with the results of the surgery Dr. Abikhaled performed on my stomach. I had no post-surgery problems and the recovery time was minimal. He described the procedure to be done in detail so that I understood exactly what to expect during the surgery, and after. This enabled me t...

    ~ Sharon M ~

  • Dr. Abikhaled performed my gallbladder removal surgery. I was back to work in 5 days, had zero pain post-surgery except from some soreness and it’s now two weeks out and I feel great! From the moment I met him he was kind, compassionate, intentional with our doctor visits and ensured that I unders...

  • Mark Lindsey is a superior surgeon. Wonderful bedside manner, extremely knowledgeable & competent. I would give him 10 stars if I could. If you need a surgeon, he’s your guy.

    ~ Donald S ~

  • We only get one body in our lifetime so it is important to find a qualified doctor, at times skilled surgeon. Dr. Lindsey is both! Three weeks ago, he repaired my umbilical hernia which is healing with no side effects nor pain. He is an excellent communicator, very attentive and has a wonderful deme...

    ~ Kent B ~

  • As a physician myself, I’m pretty picky about who will provide care for my family members. Dr. Glover is not only skillful at his job, but he has the best bedside manner of any surgeon I have ever met or worked with. He takes his time with his patients, educates his patients, and puts families at ...

    ~ Katie S ~

  • I was so impressed with Dr. Glover. He knew his information, didn’t rush my consult at all, really listened to me, discussed my choices clearly, and built a plan to perfectly fit my needs. He was patient, knowledgeable, and kind.

    ~ Orquidea B ~

  • Dr. Glover performed the first surgery I’ve ever had. I was extremely nervous and very scared to be put under. I must say Dr. Glover was very friendly yet professional. He helped calm my nerves. The surgery was a success. I would definitely recommend him. He’s a great doctor!

    ~ Shaun J ~

  • Great surgeons, great experience. I’m in the medical field and work in the OR environment daily. Dr. Lopez did a nice job explaining the plan and then executing on it. No pain and quick recovery!

    ~ Young S. ~

  • Dr. Lopez was fantastic, made me feel comfortable and re-assured me everything was okay. He 100% cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Lopez!
