  • Dec 22, 2018

    Very pleased. Dr. Daab was very thorough and communicated well with the patient.

  • Dec 20, 2018

    Yeah, he was great. It was everything that I had with him other than he didn't end up doing the actual surgery probably because he was real tired from being up from probably 2 in the morning until I had to surgery Dr. (INAUDIBLE) did it and I know him and he did great.

  • Dec 02, 2018

    Everyone was very nice. The doctor was very engaged and didn't make me feel rushed. But I really wanted some testing to be done to rule out some things, and as usual, I encountered some resistance. No blood was drawn, nor any other diagnostics ordered. I already knew the results of my CT. The reason I drove for five hours was because I need to know why I have the problems I do now. I appreciate being told that I don't need surgery on my abdominal vessels, but I don't appreciate that I came all that way to find out I need to see a different doctor to deal with the main issue, i.e., ascending aortic aneurysm. The anxiety is probably going to kill me before that does.
