5 Patient Reviews for Dr. Borger

"From my 1st visit (consultation ), I felt I was in good hands. I was very scared, but he put my mind & my husband at ease. The surgery was successful and the post op care was great. He kept my husband & son in the loop, stopped by to see me after surgery several times. His bedside manner was outstanding. Thank you Dr. BORGER for everything. You are the best."
