I recently had surgery with Dr. McCain with the most wonderful experience at a challenging time. He is extremely kind and personable and instantly puts you at ease no matter what you are facing. His surgical skills are amazing and he explains everything in detail. I literally had hardly any pain after surgery and his office staff are very kind and helpful. I highly recommend him if you are looking for the best and the most personable experience!

As a testament to his skill and desire to heal, I am able to be with my family comfortably again. I have never been under the care of a more knowledgeable physician ever. From big to small, I have the utmost faith in him as does my family and friends. Thank you Dr. McCain.

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!
