I sought appointment with Dr. Onders for follow up questions due to ***. He had been my surgeon in *** to correct *** from an earlier surgery. He was very helpful in explaining why *** occur, what surgery had corrected, that care I had recently received was appropriate. I felt reassured and confident after the appointment because he is such a positive and competent physician. We are lucky to have him.

Can't say enough nice things about Dr. Onders he was great.

Dr. Onders is simply the best. His experience is unmatched. His bedside manner Is wonderful; he Is friendly, and put me at ease. I felt completely comfortable with his expertise. He answered all 17 (!) of my questions, (some of them, even before I asked). I am so glad that he hasn't retired yet and he will be willing to perform my surgery. I'm apprehensive about general anesthesia and he is arranging for me to consult with an anesthesiologist well before the day of my surgery. Thank you for the opportunity to let Dr. Onders know how much I appreciate him.

Good experience- however I feel I was not adequately prepared with questions. When I get more serious about having surgery I will revisit Dr Onders.

Reviewed On 5/1/2022
After seeing 2 other doctors regarding my condition. This Dr.gave me more information and I felt comfortable with him right away. He assured me he has had the experience necessary to do this procedure. Both my husband and I really felt good when we left the office. The office staff was great from the first time I called worried about finding a doctor. She got me in as soon as she could. She was also helpful in scheduling surgery. This is the kind of practice that goes beyond expectations. I can't say enough good things about my experience.
