Amazing Dr who is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He had just done my surgery on Monday. Dr Dattani and his assistants were very helpful and friendly through my appointments and with surgery as well. He had called me the next day to checkup on me to see how I was doing. Greatly appreciate everything he and his staff have done for me!

Amazing! Dattani is kind, caring, and a heck of a surgeon. He kept me informed on my mothers surgery on a daily basis, and on weekends. He was always available for phone calls. Dattani said he would treat my mother like his nana and he more than lived up to it.
