Patient Reviews
Aug 31, 2020
I had never had surgery until 8 weeks ago when I had to have my gallbladder removed. Dr. Metropol came highly recommended from several coworkers and even before the surgery I knew why. He has a great bedside manner, makes you feel comfortable, and is an excellent surgeon. I had almost no pain postop and was back to work in 2 weeks. I recommend him to anyone needing a general surgery.

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams.
