    Oct 08, 2019
    Incredible Doctor. I had a hernia repair on 9/26/2019 and throughout my entire experience I was card for with the highest level of care. The surgery was so successful that I did not even need to take ANY pain medication. I am already feeling strong enough to resume careful exercising. THANK YOU DR. HURWITZ.
