I can not praise Dr. Makarawo enough for the eccellent care i receivedd with my recent iliostomy reversal. Dr. M is caing, understanding and on top of things. He personally stayed in touch with me prior to reversal and clearly let me know what to expect. I highly recommend him for your surgical needs."

I first met Dr. Forstner -Barthell with an unusual problem, pelvic floor dysfunction. It was such a relief to discuss openly my issues and following her instructions improving one area of my problems. She was so sincere and supportive listening to me. Even more, she had empathy for what I live with and was very knowledgeable about this mainly unknown disorder and the devastating effects of this.

If I could give Dr. Makarawo 10 stars, I would. He was the third surgeon to perform the same procedure on my husband and his work is far superior than the rest. His bedside manner far exceeded our expectation, he also waited after hours on a Friday night so that I could pick up a prescription for pain medication as it would not go through electronically. That following Monday morning he personally called my husband to check on him, that is unheard of these days. His office staff is very friendly and helpful. When you make an appointment you are seen on time. If you arrive early you are seen early if possible. I could go on and on but I think you get the point, he is by far the best.
