      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

      Dr Albin is one of the kindest doctors I have ever met. His decisions through out my entire procedure and follow up were always in my best interest and have been spot on to date. His son Michael also saw me twice and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Incredible young man.

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

      Experiences have been very nice.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
