What our patients say
During the consultation, Dr. Zhen took the time to explain the benefits of robotic surgery and how it would specifically benefit my hernia case. Their clear and thorough explanation gave me confidence in their expertise and the surgical approach they recommended.
I recently underwent robotic surgery for a hernia, and I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the results. Dr. Zhen Fan and his team provided exceptional care and expertise throughout the entire process.
I had a robotic hernia surgery a few months ago and I am so glad I did. The surgery was much less invasive than I thought it would be, and I recovered much faster than I expected. I was able to go home the same day as my surgery, and I was back to my normal activities within a few weeks. I would definitely recommend robotic surgery by Dr. Fan to anyone who is considering hernia surgery.
Had a ventral hernia repair with Dr. Fan in December '20. Dr. Fan was fantastic. Answered all my questions, caring, thorough and patient. He was available by phone to answer questions I had post op and has been excellent every step of the way. My incisions are so minimal and he did great surgical work! I look as good as new now, 3 months post-op.
Such an amazing caring lovely team they are here at Surgical Associates! They treated me with so much love and respect! Dr. Fan and Dr. Stephens did an amazing job healing me and taking caring of everything I asked for. They take great pride in their work but they are even a better human beings. Good Men indeed! Then the receptionist who answers the phone and greet you with so much respect and professionalism, man I'm so lucky to have grown to know them two awesome ladies! I truly recommend this Surgical Physician and will forever be grateful for all of them! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING! 🙏🏽
His staff was equally as professional and helpful. Responsive and pleasant. His surgery scheduler Dennise also was a pleasure to work with. Very responsive and addressed all my questions. I would recommend this surgeon and his practice time and time again.
