My husband had hernia surgery done by Dr. Stevenson at Agave Surgical Specialists last November. Dr. Stevenson repaired a previous hernia surgery from another surgeon. My husband is now fixed and has no pain. I highly recommend if you need any type of general surgery. Excellent Surgeon and office staff is so nice
These doctors are the best! Dr Stephenson especially. Great place as a patient and everything else. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Love them!
After almost a year of having doctors run multiple tests and trying out several different scenarios (all failing to help), I went to see Dr. Stevenson and ended up having surgery within the same month. He is a fantastic surgeon and I have not felt as good as I do in a very long time! His outlook, explanations, and frankly the whole process was outstanding. That includes his wonderfully helpful staff!! Thank you all so very much!!
Dr. Stevenson is a kind and compassionate physician. When my 88 year old mother required urgent gallbladder surgery, he was very thorough in explaining the diagnosis as well as the pros and cons of taking immediate action. He patiently listened to each of our questions and replied in terms which we could easily comprehend, no jargon whatsoever. The surgery and recovery went exactly as Dr. Stevenson had prepared us for, if not better. He followed up with us to communicate pathology results following surgery. Every step of the way, Dr. Stevenson made my mother feel like a human being, not just a patient. The office staff at Agave Surgery are just as cordial, professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Stevenson, especially for your aging loved one. Thank you Dr. Stevenson for a fantastic experience!
Dr. Maria Brown did a fantastic surgery (Gastric Sleeve), and the results are incredible. First of all, my diabetes is gone and I no longer do need insulin, and many of my oral medications. Dr. Brown excellent surgical skills are a blessing. So far I have lost more than 40 pounds and counting. Diet restrictions aren't too difficult, especially for the good overall health benefits. Again Thanks Dr. Brown
Dr. Brown is a phenomenal surgeon and is so easy to get along with. She makes sure you completely understand everything and answers all your questions. The office staff is super friendly and they get things taken care of asap. I couldn't have asked for a better place to go for my surgery!
I saw Dr. Brown who is very professional, actually reads your chart (not normal in my experience), and does a thorough follow-up. She removed my gallbladder and I recovered well with everything explained prior to the operation. I also see her now for weight loss due to adding on 48 pounds in 1 year. She is managing my weight loss well and is motivating without being punitive. I was a bit shocked by the results of my weight gain now making me have such a high BMI and statistically not likely to take off the weight and keep it off. I know my body is a pain with having low metabolic, multiple food sensitivities, and having chronic pain, but my determination and ability to keep working on being healthy (not skinny) and allowing for variation will get me through. Weight loss surgery is not right for me, but Dr. Brown is still helping me through the process. Her sights are on life-time health, not a simple shedding of pounds.
I live in the Phoenix/Glendale area and I had a ton of surgeons to choose from right here close to my house. I read a lot of reviews for a lot of surgeons and am so glad that I chose to travel out to Chandler and visit the wonderful people at Agave. I think I found the absolute best surgeon in Dr. Stevenson. He took the Easter eggs that I was hiding in my lower abdomen away and I didn't even have to take one pain pill. I had robotic surgery and I implore you to do your homework like I did because while people on YouTube will tell you the pain associated with hernia repair surgery is a nightmare, mine was completely manageable with Ibuprofen. The only complaint I have is that while going under anesthesia, they had "I will always love you," from Dollie Parton playing in the background, and all I could think was, 'this sounds like leaving the earth music!' Haha... Dr. Stevenson, Polly, and Stevie - thank you for changing my life. If my son or daughter ever need this procedure done, they will be coming to see you!
I can't say enough about Dr. Levitt, Eren and his amazing team. I had bariatric sleeve surgery and two hernias repaired on 12/18/2020 and I could not have asked for a better experience. From the initial phone call to the day of my procedure the entire team were compassionate, informative, professional, accommodating and kind. I had a million questions and every time I called, Eren and the rest of the office team did not hesitate to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. Eren is very knowledgeable regarding insurance and through sheer determination and experience she was able to assist with receiving the insurance approval for my procedures. My post op care has also been exceptional and once again I when I call with a million post op questions (lol) everyone is patient and happy to answer my questions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me a restart!
Dr. Stevenson is a wonderful surgeon. When I had to have my port put in he and the staff worked hard to get me in right away so that I could start my new IV therapy. Dr. Stevenson is always great about getting back to you when you have a question or concern. He was even nice enough to come check on me at Chandler's hospital when I was having another surgery done (this one needed a speciality surgeon or I would have ask Dr. Stevenson to do it). He is also very helpful when it comes to finding specialist for surgeries he can not do. I can not recommend Dr. Stevenson or this office enough!!
