Patient Reviews
Aug 08, 2020
There is no other surgeon I would trust my life with a knife under anesthesia than Dr. Twena. He had operated on me twice already 2010 and 2019; both went very well. I even endured weeks of abdominal pain just so my insurance can change the referral letter to him from another surgeon, that's how good I believe he is. As a patient and as a nurse I stand on my statement that he is one of the best surgeons out there, because I have taken care of his patients too in the hospital. He is not the kind of sugar and spice everything nice doctor out there but a straight to the point kind of guy that a lot of people misinterpret as standoffish or rude. Still my respects and gratitude to him and his friendly staff for always giving me the best care always.
