Dr Orkin operated on my son for rectal cancer. Dr Orkin is kind, compassionate, and very professional. He took the time to answer all of our questions. He was wonderful to me after my son's surgery. He sat with me for a long while as I was very upset. Dr. Orkin is one of the best and I would absolutely trust him with my life. He is one of the best and I highly recommend him.

He was prepared for our visit, knew all the past history. Spent considerable time explaining situation and allowing for any questions we had. He was kind, considerate, easy to talk to. We couldn't have been happier with any other doctor.
