Dr Hannoush and his took the time to go over everything in detail regarding my upcoming surgery. I didn't feel rushed by either one of them. They made me feel confident about my upcoming surgery. Everyone was friendly and accommodating.

Outstanding, highly competent and compassionate surgeon. I had surgery on March 13, 2023 for a hiatal hernia and gastropexy. All my preop visits were handled with professionalism. While in the OR, he gently touched my arm before I went under to assure me, he was taking care of me and not to be afraid. Two more visits after the surgery during my hospitalization to make sure I was doing okay . Was also very kind to the patient in the next bed in my room as he did another type of surgery on her. Smiles, easy to talk to and a nice man. I highly recommend Dr. Hannoush!!

I have had 2 visits and several with his staffers. I have known this Doctor for quite some time. I work in the medical field and my lithmus test is time and reputation amongst your peers. He has been very thorough, upfront and no sugar coating. Under his care, you have to be a willing participant in the plan. Its a process that he leads you on but you have to do your part and own your process. He is very knowledgable and respectful. He along with his staff and ancillary services have allowed me on a road to wellness and getting my life back.

By far the best doctor I’ve seen in 38 years. Extremely personable, knowledgeable and he describes everything to you in a way you can absolutely 100% understand. He listens to you and gives his best option. I’m so glad I was referred to Dr. Hannoush!!
