Dr. Siomin has saved my life twice. I truly believe if it wasn't for his care, expertise, knowledge and following up with me, I may not be writing this. Dr. Siomin visited me daily to check on me after my surgery. During all of our consultations with him, he actually sat down with my wife and me and thoroughly went over and answered all our questions and concerns, often explaining issues that we had not thought of. Dr. Siomin also gave us a game plan to follow for recovery. I cannot be more grateful to him and I’m so glad we decided to have my surgeries performed by him.
