Dr. Margolin has been my Surgery Doctor for over 15 years. I have a rare Disease called Hirschsprungs, which caused me to have intestinal problems. No doctor would take me because of this issue. Dr. Margolin, is the ONLY Doctor (besides Dr. Phillip Cole) that accepted me, helped me and is continuing to refer me to other doctors(due to my 5 hour drive), if need be! I THANK GOD FOR DR. MARGOLIN and I would refer him in a hot New York Second! Thank You Dr. Margolin, for ALL that you do!

Dr. Margolin is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. He truly cares for his patients and is willing to explain anything you need to know in simple terms (even draws it out for you!). His compassion, thoroughness, attention to detail and friendliness make him a top notch surgeon.

When Dr. Margolin consulted with me for my surgery, he didn't speak to me as if my procedure was routine...which it probably is for him. He spoke of it with the seriousness that I felt it deserved. He was patient and allowed me to express my fears; and, he answered all of my questions. With each visit, I felt as though I had Dr. Margolin's full attention to the details of my pre and post surgery concerns. Excellent bedside manner and highly competent!!
