"I was interrupted so often that I didn't get to explain all my symptoms. The Dr jumped to a conclusion before I conveyed all the info. He apologized for interrupting so he knows it's a problem. I agreed with him."

"Dr. Valina went above and beyond in his concern for not just the surgical issues that I had successfully corrected, but the financial problems that should not have occurred. So fortunate to have him."

"It was the first time in a long time that I felt the doctor was really listening and engaging - usually they are in and out so fast you can't even ask questions but he took time to ensure I understood everything and felt comfortable. He was thorough and I would highly recommend him."

"Dr. Vallina is the most sensitive, caring, thoroughly understanding and professional doctor I have ever encountered. He came into the room with a resident, spoke to me and my wife for close to 15 minutes about various subject matters, not me, in an obvious effort to relax me. He then went over all of the details that were necessary for me to know about a hernia operation I needed, explained it to me in great detail, and made sure I understood everything before he left the room. I would absolutely recommend him to my family and friends as the most caring and sensitive doctor I have ever met."
