I just want to officially thank her for being my doctor and supporting me through this tough journey of colon cancer. She is not only a great surgeon but also listens to me which doctors don't do nowadays. Thank you for being my savior.

Dr. S made an almost unbearable situation for my husband and I a bit more bearable. She was there for us, and she explained things so well and she always put our minds at ease. She would call me at night or early morning if I missed seeing her at the hospital. She connects with the entire family and is the most involved doctor I've ever experienced. I trust her completely. She works very hard and has many patients at different hospitals - but she sees them all and makes sure you are connected. Works wkends too.

The Best Surgeon

We got really lucky that we were referred to Dr. Sherafgan. She took care of my father with such care as if we were family. His hospital stay was only 3 days as she did minimally invasive surgery and we cannot even see the scars any more. And she referred him to a great oncologist as well. I cannot thank her enough. I recommend her to everyone.
