Dr. Gurgen is the best! He took care of all my concerns and my nerves. Everything was completely painless, explained everything and to this day none of my cancers came back! And no scarring! I will be coming here for all future appts. The office staff was very nice as well.

Ive had many surgeries but i can honestly say ive never had a better expérience. Dr. Gurgen an his staff went far beyond what i expected. Just wanted to say thanks to each of them.

Would NEVER go back to that office. On 1st visit, had to wait for about 10 minutes just to check in because the Lady Lake office only has 1 person to handle check ins and check outs. Over the past 10 years, I have probably had almost 100 surgeries for skin cancer with other doctors so I know what to expect. He performed a MOHS surgery on my shoulder, did not explain procedure, received no post-op instructions, left a piece of suture material several inches long in the wound and it got infected.
We unfortunately were never notified of any these complaints, this being the 1st one of this nature in over 10 years in practice. We would have immediately addressed any concerns you may have had.

One of the worse experiences I have ever experienced at a doctors office! The front staff seemed to have attitudes. Had problems with billing and called numerous times to speak to someone and keep getting "the billing manager is busy I will take a message and have her call you back" and this has been ongoing for two weeks now and havent spoke to said "billing manager" John and Michael on the other hand were exceptional providers! Very good Skin Exam!
Thank you for the positive review on our providers! I am sorry for your bad experience with the billing side of the practice. We were transitioning our billing companies during this month and caused a minor delay.

My wife and I had were new patients. We feel we received a very thorough examination. The staff was very good. They had to a biopsy on one of my areas and I had to have the MOHS. Dr Gurgen did a good job.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
in Orlando, FL |
He was very patient and compassionate. Took the time to answer all my questions and walk me through the entire procedure and aftercare. I felt very confident with him as my doctor. His entire staff was also exceptional, you can tell his office is a fun place to work.
This review means alot to us! We work hard to make a serious office be as friendly and compassionate as possible, we want you to feel like family from the 1st time you walk through the door.
