    Dr. Melissa Frankie ,NP. provided excellent care during my visit. She was knowledgeable, patient, and took the time to explain everything clearly. I felt comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!

    I had surgery with Dr Piening (excuse possible misspelling). The entire team is fabulous! He took his time before surgery to explain what was going on, what to expect afterwards, and any other random questions I had. He didn’t rush out … More for other patients. He was solely focused on me. All the nursing staff was phenomenal as well! From my pre surgery/recovery nurse, the scrub nurse, and others that assisted me. The intake people were amazing as well and it was before 5:30am! I also had a slight issue at the pharmacy - something was missing that my insurance required. I called their office staff and they got me to a nurse right away! She had the matter fixed within MINUTES - I didn’t even have time to eat my biscuit 😂.
    I’ve had this surgery before at a different hospital in a different state and I was DREADING it because my recovery was so awful. I’m already noticing a huge difference as I’m nowhere NEAR the pain I was in last time as he was very proactive when I explained my fears and what I experienced last time.
    100000% recommend!

    Dr. Etling did a robotic surgery for Hernia. The surgery itself was great but I had vertigo for 3 days post surgery then the incisions from the robotic surgery became inflamed. ( Turns out I am allergic to Derma Bond...the sealant for … More the incisions) I contacted the office through My Chart Traci..was wonderful...told me everything was normal...but this was 7 days past surgery and I was in distress and pain. At 10 days past surgery I returned to Dr Etling who saw the rash ( now
    developing!) and the redness of the incisions and ordered a Medrol pack. I am now finishing that up...angry redness has healed up but the rash moved down into my belly button and up under my bra. Again extremely uncomfortable with itching and pain. If you are looking for quick communication.. This is NOT your surgical group but the hernia repair itself was excellent. I would have given 5 stars except for the lack of ready communication

    Dr. Jared Miller is a top-notch surgeon and I highly recommend him. I had a bowel resection, and a incisional hernia surgery by him and he did great work. Recently, he performed a colonoscopy on me with no issues at all. I was a little … More concerned about having it done after having the bowel resection six years prior. Dr. Miller told me that there was nothing to worry about and he was right.
    Thanks Doc for all you have done for me.

    I was overall satisfied with everything. I tried to keep Barnes since they know my medical history. The staff and doctors are really nice. Dr. Hacker is great at what he does!!! I had a gallbladder removal and he did amazing with no complications … More and my incisions are not infected or anything. He really saved my life! No more gall bladder attacks im so happy!!!! I CAN'T THANK HIM ENOUGH 😃😃😃

    I have had excellent care from Dr. Yeager, Dr. Hacker and most recently Dr. Miller. I would highly recommend any of these three surgeons. All of these surgeons have a great bedside manner. If I need any further surgeries in the future, … More I would definitely use Benrus Surgical Associates.

    Fantastic! I went in to have a cost checked out and he said it was fine. He asked if I wanted it removed then and there, and I said sure. After about 6 minutes of "surgery" and 2 stitches I was done and no more cost. Came back … More 1 week later to get the 2 stitched removed which took about 3 minutes to do! I HIGHLY recommend this place!
