I can't thank Dr. Pakula enough for her expertise as a surgeon. I suffered many years from all the horrible symptoms of a hiatal hernia. I was desperate for my surgery and spoke to a couple of different surgeons before I met Dr. Pakula. From day 1 I knew she was the one who would fix me. She was easy to speak to, answered all my questions and really just put me at ease. Along with my robotic hernia repair she also removed my gall bladder due to a large stone. I won't lie I was still nervous about the surgery, but I knew I was in good hands. My daughter had just undergone the same surgery with Dr. Pakula 3months prior with a fabulous outcome. My surgery went well and I was home the same day. The nurses at the hospital even said, "all Dr. Pakula's patients go home the same day" My recovery was quick with little down time. my pain was minimal. I was back to work in about 2weeks. (mind you I am 56years old) The best part is I have no more heartburn or reflux that troubled me for over 5years. I was off all heartburn meds immediately. My surgery was a complete success thanks to the expertise of Dr. Pakula. She is a dream come true and I can't thank her enough, and her amazing staff. Thank you Dr. Pakula I am forever grateful!!
From the first appointment until the follow-up surgery visit, Dr. Pakula demonstrated her kindness, patience and caring nature to myself and father. I am grateful to her and her whole staff. THANK YOU you're all amazing!
