"To be honest, I wasn't very impressed. After my 2nd visit, Dr. Hodge was pretty nice. I think they want to see how serious we are about having this surgery. Dr. Hodge's staff has alway's been super nice. Alway's helpful & kind. Dr. Hodge stresses the aftercare you will need, & also let's you know how IMPORTANT it is. He told me up front how careful I would have to be. On a scale of 1-10, Dr. Hodge is an 8. I have done so well, I think his surgical competence is WONDERFUL!!"
