I can’t emphasize how much of an amazing surgeon Dr. Hurley is. The pain was minimal, the recovery was quick, and the scarring was minimal for what was performed. I had a good amount of anxiety before each surgery and then he would come in to greet me with a calm and confident demeanor that really helped calm me down.
