On this, the second anniversary of my Whipple procedure I wish Dr. Bilchik all the best in the coming year, and thank you for giving me these additional years of life. You are a master of your craft but as importantly you are a thoughtful, caring person and for that, I will be forever grateful and in your debt.
I would not be alive to write this review if not for Dr Bilchik. He took on my very complicated surgery without hesitation. His skill, experience, and brilliance made me feel instantly at ease. The six hour surgery he and his team performed on me was a miracle of skill and perseverance. I am forever grateful to Dr. Bilchik and his team.
Dr. Fischer is a compassionate and kind physician. He explained the disease and the surgical procedure, answering all of my questions. I can’t thank him enough!
Dr. Childs is a fantastic, competent, compassionate surgeon. She literally saved my life and got me up and out of the hospital within a day of emergency surgery. Based on my experience, I trust her implicitly.
Dr. Foshag would be my first choice if I ever needed a surgeon again. He took his time and explained everything to me. He is an expert and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Bilchik and his team are calm, professional, patient, understanding and compassionate. My mother had to have emergency surgery, but Dr. Bilchik found the time to meet with my entire family and explain the necessity, risks, prognosis and details of the emergency. My mother had a successful operation thanks to Dr. Bilchik. He will always have my deepest gratitude and appreciation for what turned out to be saving my mother’s life.
Dr. Fischer has a wonderful bedside manner and is respectful and patient. I have never met a more kind or compassionate physician.
Dr. Childs is an amazing doctor who makes you feel comfortable right away. She is warm and caring, but extremely focused, and straight forward in her approach to get you well. I am grateful she is my doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr. Foshag for 6 years. He is the best! He is an excellent doctor and a kind, caring, friendly and wonderful person.
Dr. Bilchik is an amazing doctor and a great person. He operated on my husband when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He performed esophagectomy. It takes great skill to do it right and he made sure that all after care was on point. Thank you Dr. Bilchik!
