What Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul's Patients Have to Say

Dr Bhoyrul is such a nice guy! He is caring and extremely knowledgeable. He spends time with you, explains everything, answers ALL questions, never acts like you're a dummy. He does many types of abdominal surgeries, spleen, ripped diaphragm, intestine, hernia repair. He knows what he is doing. He wrote the FIRST book on the 'Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery!!!!!' He pretty much saved my life when my diaphragm split and my stomach traveled completely into my chest. I had a car crash and tore the diaphragm open again. If I have to have it repaired, Dr Bhoyrul will be the one to do it. He is a genuinely nice person besides being an extremely well-educated surgeon!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bhoyrul and his staff. They are dedicated, but down to earth and easy to talk to. They make me feel like a priority, and continuously put my best interest first. I always have Dr. Bhoyrul and/or Kirsten's full undivided attention when I am there. I was nervous at first, but after meeting them fear became excitement and my surgery date couldn't come soon enough. My surgery was a success, I am happily living the life I've always wished for, healthy!

I couldn't ask for a better surgeon, one who really gets to know and care for his patients. I've recommended him many times, and had great feedback from friends and family, as well.

Dr. Bhoyrul did an outstanding job on my surgery worked hard to keep his word and get me out of the hospital on time. I intend to recommend Dr. Bhoyrul to anyone that I know that needs surgery.

Dr. Bhoyrul has been my surgeon for multiple cancer and weight surgeries. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but a doctor you can trust and feel confident that you have the "best". My positive mental attitude has been strengthened knowing Dr. Bhoyrul is my surgeon!

Not only has he golden hands, he also has an angel touch and a way to inspire patient confidence in recovery! He explained to me my situation exactly as it was and my recovery so far goes exactly by his plan! God grant him good health! God bless him!

Both my wife and I had surgery performed by Dr Bhoyrul...very satisfied with his treatment, knowledge, understanding and professionalism...not enough words to describe how happy we are with him and his staff...thank you kindly.
