Dr. Bogard did an amazing job on my hernia surgery. He provided me with all of the information I needed to relieve any anxiety about my surgery. I recovered quickly after the surgery with a minimum of pain. I made an appointment recently because I thought I had possibly torn something when lifting and I was able to see him right away. He examined me, assured me that I had not done any damage to the hernia and explained that everything would be fine and reminded me that I am still healing and to be careful in the future. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Bogard is an extremely kind surgeon. He explains everything that will take place so I knew exactly what to expect. Before the OP surgery his team came in to introduce themselves to me and I felt I was in very capable and caring hands. I also appreciate the fact that he says a little prayer before you leave the holding area. I was told that If I had any questions or concerns over the weekend to call without hesitation. I also received a call on Monday after surgery asking me how I was feeling and If I had questions. I highly recommend Dr. Bogard and the OP Surgery area In Avon.

Getting an appointment online was a new experience but fairly easy to navigate. I received a text and e-mail confirmation for the appointment, but unfortunately the appointments were for two different offices. A phone call easily fixed this issue. The staff was courteous and timely. Dr. Bogard was extremely courteous, approachable, knowledgeable, and helpful about my issue. I salute him for his professionalism and demeanor.

See the previous note. Can I give Dr. Bogard a 10? Lol.
