What Our Patients Say

The procedure went exactly as Dr. Ganser said it would. He made sure that extra care and attention was given the patient while in the hospital. We could not be more pleased with the overall experience.

Patient

Dr. Harris is phenomenal. He helped me to determine the best course of action for breast cancer. He answered all my questions and I always felt he was suggesting what was very best for me personally. I have been recommending him as the very best to deal with breast cancer. I am extremely grateful for all his support and help. Thank you!

Patient

Every parameter - from the preliminary office visit, to the surgery itself was all handled very professionally and with great care. My brother from California accompanied me the day of the surgery, and was very impressed! Dr. Gomez and the surgical team - including the anesthesiologist, were very thorough and I felt completely confident going into surgery.

Patient

I want to reiterate my gratitude for my care from Dr. Jaquish. I believe he not only saved my life, but also relieved grave anxiety and restored hope and optimism for me and my family for my healing. Truly priceless. Thank you.

Patient

Dr. Kozar genuinely cares about your success. He is engaging and informative. Pre surgery preparation was thorough and comforting. Surgery was a breeze and healing time was surprisingly brief. I recommend Dr. Kozar without reservation. He is the surgeon you want.

Patient

I'm so pleased with Dr. Wright. She was wonderful during a very frightening time for me. She was kind, sensitive and helpful. I think she's the best! Thank you!

Patient

My husband and I have both been to this office. Every doctor and staff member we have encountered so far has been friendly, helpful, and professional. We have already recommended this office to other people.

Patient

I was pretty uncomfortable needing to see a colon/rectal doctor. Dr. Michael Thomas has great demeanor and gained my trust. Great guy!

Patient

Dr. Jaquish is an extremely good listener and always gives you enough time during visits. Not many doctors give this kind of attention.

Patient

Dr. Wright, as well as the entire support staff (medical & office) at Western Surgical have been exceptional in all their interactions with me. I am so thankful my primary care provider recommended your group for my procedure.

Patient

I'm glad to have Dr Ganser's expertise and direction -- he plans with all of my health providers and wants to ensure we make the right choices in screening and treatment for me. I feel that he wants me to get rid of cancer, get well, and stay well!

Patient

Dr. Hulka has performed surgeries on my children over the last few years. During a worrisome and upsetting time for me and my family, it was assuring knowing we had a seasoned pediatric surgeon to provide quality care to our family.

Meet the Western Surgical Group Medical Assistants!

Whether they are taking a patient’s medical history, recording their vital signs, or performing any number of administrative and clinical tasks, medical assistants (known as MAs) play a vital role in the delivery of care at Western Surgical Group.

MAs help set tone for each patient visit – greeting our patients, making them feel comfortable, gathering essential information about the person’s history and what brought them to us on that particular day.

At Western Surgical Group, we know that the patient experience starts from the moment they walk in the door. The medical assistants are some of the very first staff our patients encounter and often the last as well. They are crucial to the clinicians’ ability to provide the high quality care Western Surgical Group patients deserve.

On the observance of Medical Assistants Week, we wanted to take this opportunity to recognize our outstanding team and thank them for everything they do!View on Facebook
