Dr. McGinty was very nice, thorough and patient in explaining my diagnosis so that I fully understood my condition. He recommended against surgery, but if I had needed it, I would be confident going with him. Office staff all very nice.

I am blessed to have have found a doctor so caring, compassionate, patient, excellent bed side manner, and overall a genuine professional! I never feel rushed or that my questions are silly. I felt beyond comfortable trusting him with my health & Bariatric surgery! I say this to everyone who asks me about my surgeon and my answer is always, I just want to hug him :)

Recently had Umbiical Hernia Repair, besides the fact that he's just a great guy and explained everything to me start to finish, he did a great job. It's been two weeks since the surgery. I went into see him. No pain, he took off the bandage and there is barely anything there. I feel great and am getting back to my very active routine. I recommend him highly, had an incredible experience!

Based on prior recommendations from his collegues I was not surprised to find Dr. McGinty very well versed in his specialty. He not only fully explained the differences between the various types of bariatric procedures but also gave insight as to why certain procedures may be better for some based on age, physical condition, and other existing medical conditions. In addition he offered realistic expectations as to the improvement in quality of life I could expect based on my personal situation, rather than saying "it would solve all my other health issues" as some have said. All in all it was a great experience and pleasure speaking with him and I have complete confidence in his handling of my case.

I had a great experience with Dr. McGinty and his staff. Highly recommend him for a consultation and surgery if required. I had surgery and it went very well. I was nervous about the surgery but he explained the procedure in detail and made me feel comfortable before moving forward.
