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!!
