Dr. Hodax and his team made a horribly unpleasant event incredibly easy. My concerns were always immediately addressed, and I never felt uncomfortable about my treatment plan. Dr. Hodax especially listened to my concerns about timing with the surgery, and graciously expedited things along. I rave about my surgical team to everyone I know, and am thankful the process went as smoothly as it did (even given the COVID epidemic).
