I'm a satisfied and happy patient of Dr. Chengelis.
I had a right inguinal hernia ( I guess I had it for a long time but just neglected it until I had the pain and disabled my mobility momentarily), so I was referred to him by my Primary Care Doctor.
The first appointment was very informative and transparent, I had big hernia, I chose surgery as soon as possible, the date was set on June 18 and Dr. Chengelis showed up before the surgery and explained to me the procedure again. I was given general anesthesia, after I woke up from the surgery by 3 hours I headed home (LOL I did not drive, my sister in law did), I walked in my house and climbed up the stairs with no pain. The following day I woke up and NO pain (to my surprise, believe or not,) other than soreness and numbness from anesthesia, no lifting of any kind, just walking and climbing up and down at home until my follow up appointment today with Dr. Chengelis. He checked me, asked me to cough strongly and there was NO sign of hernia or pain. I was elated and ready to go back to my normal life.
Thank you Dr. Chengelis with all my respect for your great expertise & professionalism, you made the whole process easy, smooth and painless.
