How likely are you to recommend Dr. Failing?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Failing was VERY good at explaining what needed to happen and in what order they would occur. I had to have stones removed from Main Byle Duck before he could do his part So after getting that done and waiting a week. And because of the "shelter in place" ruling on date of my surgery I figured my scheduled gallbladder surgery would be rescheduled but some how Dr, Failing kept it on and preformed the surgery without a hitch. Again he walked my wife and I through each step prior to starting.
