"Patient testimonials are extremely important to me but usually does not tell the entire story.

I see a large number of new patients directly referred to me from previously treated patients and consider this to be a great honor. In all honesty, a small minority of my patient experiences are not positive.

Cancer and surgery are not always exact sciences and I strive to be upfront and honest with my patients.

We see a great deal of patients and plan on spending as much time as it takes to discuss a treatment plan even if that plan does not include surgery as it might not be in the patient's best interest"

Dr. Pattaras saved my life. He is exceptionally thorough and informative and always takes all the time I need to answer every question I have. He is as caring as he is skilled as a surgeon. I wish I could give him 100 stars. I could never thank him enough for all that he has done. I don't know of any other doctor who combines so many great qualities. I can't say enough great things about him.

He had me very relaxed for the entire process. He covered every question that I would have asked, before I asked.

My father was diagnosed in 2006 with kidney cancer. We were referred to Dr. Pattaras. This doctor was awesome. I have spoke so highly of him and the Emory staff. THANK YOU

I had an absolutely pleasurable experience getting my "stone" removed and all because of the wonderful Dr. Pattaras and his amazing staff. I would highly recommend him.
