Dr. Abdelbary and Dr. Meghan, his resident, and the entire surgical/anesthetic team responded to my health situation with clinical mastery that I did not know was even possible. The care was delivered with skill, gifted communication, compassion and inspiring excellence. Thank you for all the wonderful care I received. And I’m happy to report that while I may never get through an airport metal detector quite the same way, I am well on the road to recovery.

Thank you.
