Armand Hatzidakis, MD

My Approach to Treating Patients

"I treat patients the way I would like to be treated; with thoughtful listening, thorough examination, and a complete discussion of the options for care. If an operation is the required or elected upon, I stay updated and proficient in both time-honored and modern techniques required to give the patient the best result possible."
