Dr. Read is an exceptional surgeon. My case was fairly complicated (more complicated than anticipated when I went into the OR) and he was still able to perform my surgery laparscopically. He came to speak with me after the surgery (I will admit I don't remember that whole conversation) and again early the next morning to see how I was doing. He unfortunately had to be out of town for two days for a conference; however the surgeon covering for him was also excellent. He checked on me as soon as he returned. The day I was discharged he was in surgery all day, however still came to see me in between surgeries to ensure I was ok before leaving the hospital.
Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about all of the doctors and nurses at Lahey Clinic. They were all exceptional and I would highly recommend the Colon and Rectal Surgical team.
