    Dr. Nasrallah is the best doctor I have seen.He is very professional and caring. He well explained the problem areas in my body he checked, and gave me a thorough explanation of the plan to follow up to surgery.He answered any questions totally and made me feel at ease.

    I would like for a way to ask follow up questions. Such as: Ok, I do not have a hernia. Does that mean that I can exercise with this pain?
