Dr. Phitayakorn recently repaired my umbilical hernia and the entire procedure went flawlessly. I typically have issues with anesthesia and he made sure that I had quality pre-op time to completely discuss my concerns with the anesthesiologist and nursing team, which resulted in my experiencing no side effects before, during, or after, my surgery. He is also extremely personable and he has the ability to carefully and clearly explain exactly what he is doing, and why. I worked in healthcare for twenty years and I can safely say that Dr. Phitayakorn is one of the finest surgeons that I have ever encountered. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs a great surgeon.

Dr. Phitayakorn was beyond excellent. He removed a cyst located in my arm pit with care, precision and speed. He was a complete professional from start to finish. His calm demeanor and ability to explain the procedure in detail made the whole process enlightening and enjoyable. He answered all my questions and was very helpful with post-operative care for the wound. He called about a week or so after surgery to let me know the results of the tests on the cyst, answered any and all questions and was genuinely concerned. His skills and patient care are what every doctor should strive for and was/is deeply appreciated.

Very personable physician who clearly loves what he does. If I ever have to get another cyst removed, he will be the first one I go to.

I have thyroid cancer. Dr. Phitayakorn was the best thing that could have happened to me in what was otherwise a very confusing, scary and complicated situation. He was reassuring and almost literally held my hand the whole way through. From the fine needle aspirations to the surgery to remove my thyroid and the nodule he had my complete trust and I found afterwards that it was not misplaced. He is a very highly skilled surgeon as well. My surgery was somewhat complicated and I would not have trusted anyone else to be doing what could be a very dangerous procedure. My incision also is already almost invisible just two weeks after the surgery. I doubt I’ll even have a scar despite the fact it was about 2-2 1/2 inches long. After the surgery he explained the pathology to me and continues to this day to answer any question I have. He even gave me his cell phone number to call him on evenings or weekends if I need help. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Phitayakorn was excellent. He was professional, calming and explained the procedure as he proceeded through the surgery. He removed a cyst that was in a very delicate area on my body. He was very careful and precise. He answered all my questions and was very helpful with post operative care for the wound. He called about a week after surgery to again answer questions and check on my progress. His skills and patient care were very deeply appreciated.

Dr. Phitayakorn is amazing. He drained and removed a cyst on the back of my neck with such precision and ease. During prep, he chatted with me, let me pick the music to be played and explained everything. During the procedure, he continued to chat, made sure I was comfortable and he told me what he was doing. I felt comfortable with him. After the procedure, he gave me wound care instructions and walked me to the front desk. Not once did he hand me off to anyone else. If I ever need this type of procedure again, he is definitely the one Imwill choose. I highly recommed him.

Dr. Roy Phitayakorn is a caring, considerate and skilled physician. He recently did surgery on my leg. His technique was excellent. He took the time to call me and check up on how I was doing. He even left his cell number in case I needed him. There are very few surgeons at Mass General who are as personable, knowledgeable or awesome as Dr. Phitayakorn. I think he should teach a course on bedside manner to all surgeons!!! I rate him A++.
