Most unprofessional DR and staff. Had a three minute consult for $650 where he “ told” me what I will do without conversation and left the room . His staff was uncaring , rude and highly inefficient from their insurance staff to their front desk . Wouldn’t believe this experience , would NEVER consider their services

In my life that's been filled with hair-raising diagnosis,' I've met hundreds of doctors in my life. This summer I was told I had a liver problem I was probably not going to walk away from. My original surgeon got in touch with Dr. McCain as he is considered the finest in the NYC area. I can tell you, I just needed a surgical magician. I didn't know I was about to meet the most compassionate, charming man in the trip-state area with a staff to match. I'm honored to have my life back. I owe him

I have had the privilege of being treated by Dr. McCain. Words cannot even describe how amazing this doctor is. Not only is he brilliant, he is compassionate too. At each visit Dr. McCain took the time to explain tests, results, and course of actions thoroughly to me. I will be forever grateful for the care he provided me with. Being diagnosed with breast cancer at 37 years old was traumatic. But, Dr. McCain always managed to my lift me spirits up at each visit. He staff also wonderful too!
