TESTIMONIALS

Wish I Could Rate Her Staff Higher

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Favre is an AMAZING ROCKSTAR! And a credit to her profession! I had never had surgery before and needed my appendix removed because it had burst. She met with me shortly before surgery, explained what would happen during and after. My appendix actually burst and she is so amazing at her skill set, she DID NOT cut me open! I believe my recovery was faster than normal because of her skill and care.! She checked on me while I was at the hospital and had her staff check in while I still had a drainage tube. When I went in to get the tube removed she again asked if I had any questions and answered ALL of them. Also while she was removing my appendix, she found a hernia I was not aware of and consulted me on my options! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend her. Because of her bedside manner, I am over my fear of hospitals ( a BONUS!)

My All-Time Favorite

You’ll be my all-time favorite for life. You’ve shown true compassion towards me, hugs, sharing your personal family story, giving me a few extra minutes on follow up appointments and that is so unexpected but so refreshing and reassuring. The hospital staff at ...and in your office all speak of you with the highest regard, it’s easy to see why. You are many steps above normal. And thanks for the vote of confidence in my ability to handle what’s next…

Could Not Be Happier

Having just retired and moving from Colorado. I did not expect to need a surgeon for my hernia. With the feeling that, I would just have to hope that I could find a surgeon, in my mind. I was, and have been so lucky to have meet Dr. Favre. From our first meeting I felt comfortable, and confident she was the right choice. I could not be happier with the way my surgery went and the recovery from it. I would not hesitate to contact her for any issues I may have.
