Our Surgeons

Our Patients are Top Priority

It is the belief of Great Lakes Surgical Associates that our patients come first.

Our staff is courteous, friendly, available, informative, and a human voice answers the phone. It has been of primary importance to GLSA that the surgeons and support staff never lose sight of the fact that the single most important thing we can do is to render the best possible care to our patients in a concerned and friendly manner.
