  • Excellent care
    Extremely satisfied with the professional care and service provided by Dr B and the staff.
    Dr B. Has extremely good bedside manner. I have many ailments that stop some of the GERD "fixes," He is the first surgeon that I believe sits and listens to what I want along with checking with my other specialists to see if procedures and prescriptions are even an option for me. I feel he cares for condition and I am not treated as a number. I believe he has trained his entire staff to have the same attitude and professional attitude. His PA,make you feel warm and fuzzy even tho you are getting bad news and leaves you with hope. My only concern is one of my options that "may" help me is not offered at St. Jude and I will be forced to attend [ID] and have the attending interns "practice" on me. This I'm just not willing to do!
    Dr B. Is great!
    I've had surgery by Dr B and he has been wonderful about being sure I've healed well and do not have any problems.
