What Our Patients Say
I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Siegal. He was patient with my concerns and questions. Dr. Siegal answered my all questions and explained the procedure so that I could understand him. Follow up care was great! Also, the office was very friendly! The whole experience went really well!
When you think of excellence, empathy and humility, it is impossible not to think of Dr. Steven Siegal. I never thought that a healthcare provider like a surgeon could have these qualities and many more. Him and his extraordinary team saved my life, and not only did they save me, they have given me the opportunity to have a better quality of life. I thank God for putting Dr. Steven Siegal and his excellent team and colleagues on my path.
I was very impressed from my first visit to Dr. Denk. The office staff were all very professional. If was obvious from the start Dr .Denk was very knowledgeable about my inguinal hernia. I wanted to get it fixed asap. The surgery went very well and the recovery went well. Highly recommend this team.
