    How was your appointment with Dr. Hesham?

    Feb 26, 2022
    Had been recommended to ask for Dr. Hesham when I entered LGH with Crohn's disease complication of abscess at ileocecal valve site. He performed a bowel resection with an ileocecal procedure, fortunately leaving me without an ileostomy. His friendliness, warmth, and candor were so greatly appreciated. He'd pull a stool up to bedside so on eye level for our chats. His explanations were always clear and he always had time for my many questions. A more caring surgeon doesn't exist! He is a jewel! Thank you, Dr. Hesham!
