“I was very nervous and fearful about this surgery. Dr. Stratton put my wife and I totally at ease and gave us a high level of confidence going into the surgery. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who is in a similar situation as I was in.”

Dr. Beaule and his team provided world-class care, right here in the nation’s capital. Since my back surgery, I am fully back in action!

Stephen B.Ottawa, 2016 Patient

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.

Denise De Laat
