“As your surgeon, you can expect me to utilize my many years of experience to care for you carefully and professionally. Surgery is a scary prospect, but with the assistance of both local and general anesthesia you can be cared for with minimal emotional and physical discomfort. Most likely, you will not remember the procedure!”
Dr. Stoker’s favorite sports are his grandkids’ sporting events, which include soccer, football, swimming, water polo, basketball, and volleyball.
