08/04/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Etlinger has performed two surgeries on me since 2010. One was a total thyroidectomy due to cancer, and the other removal of two lumps in my left breast. Being so young (23 and 24), I was terrified, but Dr. Etlinger has never left me feeling confused or uncertain. His bedside manner is impeccable, he is a brillant doctor. Upon my telling him this, he gave the glory to God, saying it was only through Him he was able to do what he does...wow. I recommend Dr. Etlinger to ANYONE seeking a surgeon. Also, each and everytime I call his office for a question he has come directly to the line, I've never had to speak to anyone else regarding my recoveries. I am SO thankful this man went into medicine!

He did take time to call me and answer follow up questions which can be rare and was valuable service to me. Will reccommend to others.

14/04/10 5 5 5 5 This surgeon rushed me to hospital to do emergency operation on me for ectopic pregnancy that had burst with internal bleeding after I passed out cold in his waiting room. I know he saved my life back in 1992 with this surgery, and I am forever grateful! I have not had any contact with him since 1992, however.
