WOW... Just an absolute amazing experience. I was very nervous and not very comfortable this being the only surgery I ever had. Aside from having a great personality and wonderful bedside manner Dr. McGinty stripped away all my fears and made me feel totally at ease. Tina the patient care coordinator is a treasure. A doctor's staff is equally as important as the doctor themselves. Dr McGinty's staff is without a doubt the cream of the crop

Dr. McGinty performed my Hernia surgery 2 weeks ago. I just returned back to work and could not be happier! I was in a lot of pain for a very long time, and could not return to work. Dr. McGinty and his staff helped me through the surgical process and within 1 week I was scheduled for surgery. Please know you will not be disappointed coming to his office!! He spends time with you and the staff are very friendly and helpful!

I went to Dr. McGinty for a hernia repair, surgery was June of 2018. After an 8 hour surgery I was told the hernia was larger than expected and they had to reconstruct my abdomen wall - abdominal wall reconstruction. Fast forward three months and my abdomen wall is completely wide open again. Dr. McGinty may be the doctor for a small hernia repair, but knowing what I know now, he was definitely not the doctor to perform the reconstruction of my abdomen. I need another surgery, bad situation.

Unfortunately, I would not recommend Dr.Mcginty due to his office. I went there for a consultation and the staff gave me the incorrect address. I had to waste money taking a cab. When I got there they had me sitting waiting for 2 hours, I had to go back to work. Never got a chance to see him. I felt like I was a number only.
