Comments

Excellent experience with Dr. Yunis and nurse practitioner. Both were extremely knowledgeable, informative, and professional relative to the entire process. I left feeling quite confident that I could not be dealing with a better surgeon. Thank you Dr. Yunis!
My post about my hernia repair experience with Dr. Yunis:

"I flew from DC to have Dr. Yunis do a non-mesh hernia repair, and couldn't be happier. I heard from several people
at the surgical center (not his employees) who all uniformly said "Dr. Yunis is the best!" and I believe it. He's kind, empathic and engaging, which is obviously a real plus, but the main thing is that he's an accomplished surgeon. Although he can and will perform laparoscopic mesh surgery if the patient desires, he knows how to do both the Desarda technique and the Shouldice technique, and what he does (if you want a non-mesh procedure) is, after he opens you up, makes a decision about which technique fits your individual need, rather than a "one-size fits all" choice. And this is also key: he is, as far as I can tell, the only surgeon in the country who does non-mesh surgery who also takes Medicare (for which he makes much less money), which means that you don't have to be rich to use him (other surgeons charge many thousands of dollars). He's great!"
