Dr. Babineau had the best bedside manner and he did a wonderful job the stuff is so great they explain everything to you and make you feel good about your surgery I had no trouble with anything even when I was afraid Jennifer the nurse assured me everything would be okay just to follow all the directions and not to feel so scared everything was going to be fine,Dr Babineau assured me that nothing was going to happen and then I would be just fine not to be so afraid he was going to take good care of me and everyone was going to be fine thank you so much Dr Babineau over everything you done I'm so happy with everything you did.

Dr. Babineau changed my life forever and I could never thank him and his staff enough. Everyone in his office is super nice and knowledgeable, they prepare you for the changes you will go through. He and his staff remain available to guide you through your journey to a healthier life. It is not an easy solution but it is well worth it and I couldn't have done it without Dr. Babineau and his staff!
