Could not recommend Dr. Orkin more. He was honest, professional and kind during a very difficult time. He immediately made me feel comfortable, educated me on the procedures and made my safety his number one priority. He called me the days following my procedure and was so genuine in his approach to the conversation. Honestly cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you, Dr. Orkin.

Laura Millet – Feb 01, 2018
Another doctor discovered I had a fibroid but I decided to go to Dr Orkin to get a second opinion. I brought test results and an ultrasound pic with me to the appointment. Dr Orkin almost laughed at my face and dismissed everything I brought saying that me being 29 y/o and healthy female it is impossible to have fibroids and this was probably just a muscle twist at the time of the ultrasound, he made me feel stupid and turned me away without even looking. (I actually indeed had 2 fibroids).
