I strive to pro­vide sur­gi­cal care with the skill and com­pas­sion that I would want for myself and my fam­i­ly. I aim to main­tain a lev­el of skill that is cur­rent with the newest and most advanced sur­gi­cal tech­niques, while uti­liz­ing my 25 years of expe­ri­ence as a sur­geon to know when to use these techniques.

"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."
