I first met with Dr. Albin in January 2016 about hernial swelling from a hernia operation 10 years ago. Dr. Albin's daignosed a staph infection and did a surgery that determined that the infection had permeated the mesh from my first surgery. 6 months of antibiotics later, the infection remained. A 2nd surgery (2 1/2 hours) was done and mesh was removed and old hernia abated by old school stitches was done. Today, infection is gone and I am back golfing, weight lifting and hiking! Success!

Went in for a surgery consult on my hernias. The second he opened his mouth, I knew he was not for me. He was the only Doctor I saw(out of 4) that only wanted to do 1 hernia at a time- why would I do two separated surgeries ??? He was not personable at all and immediately tried to send me down for blood work/ekg and wanted to do the surgery open(longer recovery)Felt like he was running asembily line surgery. He may be a great surgeon and he may also have Aspergers. I did not want to find out

Great experience! Just that my surgery time was in the afternoon, which meant I had to be starving most of the day
