    I had a hernia surgery performed by Dr. Sharadh Sampath and from the first conversation with the coordinator to the consultation with Dr. Sampath and for opting to have the surgery done. Excellent – Dr. Sampath explains fully the procedure and will listen to any or all of your concerns. He is the BEST!

    Dr. Sampath performed and emergency colostomy on me in October of 2013. In speaking with the nurses they all said he was the best. Sure enough he was. Knowledgeable, Funny, Great bedside manner and all around Great Guy. He also preformed a reversal of my colostomy 4 months later with no complications etc. I was happy he was able to do that because my only daughter got married a few months later and I wanted to dance with her without the colostomy bag attached to me. I still need to send him a photo of us dancing together.

    I had bariatric surgery. He is knowledgeable, precise with his communications, and I really enjoyed the experience with him as my surgeon. He is very busy as a surgeon, and some may feel like they aren’t getting the attention they require, but I on the other hand, found him great to deal with. All business, straight to the point, and get it done (with a joke here and there). What more can you ask for? Isn’t that his job? Fix you up and send you back to your GP for hand holding… Trust him. He is good.
