There is no other surgeon I have ever met all right about that matches not only the high-end quality and genius of Dr. Brent Bogard, but you have to add to that quality his superior friendly and comedic disposition, and awesomely perfect bedside manner. he has a way of making the whole thing about being operated on seem so simple. He knows how to relax a patient and make him stress free. He can say six words to a patient who is lying on a gurney in the operating room waiting his very first ever surgery, and he can walk in and say six words which had me laughing hysterically. at this point I knew that I had the very best surgeon for the job. Thank you, Doctor Brent Bogard. I didn't feel a thing Dr. Bogey. Honestly. Your professionalism is so high end, it goes beyond description. And your surgical team deserves nothing but the very highest marks possible. Thank you all very much for making my visit pleasant, anxiety free, painless and successful. Cheers!

The only trouble was trying to get the fax number for the doctors office. The phone number I found on the website isn't the correct number for the Avon office. No one that I called (the office's 1-800 number) did not know the fax number I needed and no one answered the phone when I called the main office.
