Dr. Jain was informative. He listened to all of my concerns and answered my questions.

5 out of 5 stars

I am terrified of what must be done to "fix me". Dr.J was FANTASTIC. He explained EVERY detail of what must be done and even drew a diagrahm. The hospital is VERY lucky to have him. He just did not strike me as a typical Dr. No rushing or hurrying......really treated me like he actually cared about my outcome. Can not say enough about him.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr Jain spoke directly to my dad when speaking even though I accompanied him to the appt. He advised him of precautions to take in the future as well as options we had with his current condition. He took the time considering patient pain and mobility and I believe together we came to an excellent option for my dad

5 out of 5 stars

I am so blessed to have *Dr. Jain as my vascular surgeon since my need for abdominal aorta aneurysm surgery.
