Patient Testimonial:
"My experience with Dr. Reath before my surgery was excellent - very professional, thorough, friendly. He spent a lot of time on the initial visit explaining everything and answering questions. I felt comfortable and confident. His call after my surgery was a nice touch. He was very sensitive to post-op concerns. The frequent follow-ups were very reassuring... I highly recommend Dr. Reath to my patients, colleagues and friends."
