I had an excellent experience during my appointment with Dr Duffy! He was attentive and responsive to my concerns and I felt my input was the number one factor in making a treatment decision going forward. I would highly recommend Dr Duffy!
Welcome to Advanced Surgical of North Texas
Your General Surgeons for North, TX
General surgeons Steve Duffy MD, FACS, Chris Cottrell, MD, FACS, and the team at Advanced Surgical of North Texas provide acute surgical care and minimally invasive robotic procedures to adolescents and adults at their practice in McKinney, Texas.
The highly-skilled team at Advanced Surgical of North Texas treats a broad range of conditions, including gallbladder, colorectal surgery, inguinal hernias, and ventral hernia. They also specialize in thyroid, appendicitis, reflux, skin infections, weight-loss surgery, and pilonidal disease. They use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, using state-of-the-art technology like the da Vinci® Surgical System. Dr. Cottrell is also one of only a few surgeons in the area who performs the transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) procedure for acid reflux.
The team at Advanced Surgical of North Texas is committed to integrity, sincerity, and good communication in their doctor-patient relationships. They treat patients as partners in their own health care and spend as much time as needed to explain all procedures in detail. They know that being an informed patient helps reduce the anxiety that naturally develops when facing surgery, so they welcome questions, note-taking, and having a family member or close friend at the appointment.
I was most pleased with the courtesy and professionalism of the office staff. Wait times in the reception and exam rooms were reasonable. The surgeon took the time needed to discuss the necessary course of action with me, and I was most pleased that I was allowed to take an active part in the discussion.
I am a somewhat complex patient. Dr Cottrell spent more than enough time with me and he answered all my questions. He is congenial and seems to enjoy his work. His recommendations made sense to me and I am planning an out-patient surgery with him.
Fortunately I did not require surgery, but I will absolutely be going to Dr. Duffy if I ever do! He is extremely kind and respectful. Wonderful bedside manner and took time to let me share my thoughts before he went into his observations and recommendations. The appointment was not rushed and I left feeling comfortable and confident.
Dr. Cottrell and his staff are absolutely amazing! They went above and beyond to help me get in before the end of the year to have my surgery. Answered all my questions, gave me a thorough explanation of all the steps I needed to take before and after my procedure. I've had an amazing recovery with no complications! Thank you Dr. Cottrell for taking amazing care of your patients!
I cannot express enough how incredibly grateful I am for Dr. Duffy and his entire team at Advanced Surgical of North Texas. My case was complex and, for me it was scary! Dr. Duffy took my case with confidence, compassion and the care I so desperately needed to calm my anxiety. He moved quickly and made sure I was communicated with every step of the way. I would/will see him again if I am ever in need of a surgeon. As well as send anyone I know to him, in a heartbeat.
