Dr Lublin is a truly excellent surgeon. One of those doctors who inspire complete confidence and comfort. He Achieved a complicated surgery to repair a large hiatal hernia with esophageal involvement that had caused me a lifetime of acid reflux. The surgery went great, I had next to no pain and I believe the process was pretty near flawless. Am currently at week five post surgery and feeling very much better than I have in years. No acid reflux for the first time in 40 years. Sincere thanks to Dr Lublin for changing my life for the better!

Dr. Lublin's Office would not schedule surgery in network at St. Johns Medical Center but pushed to schedule surgery at an out of network surgical center. My cost would have been substantially more because there is no UnitedHealthcare contract with out of network providers. Would not recommend this Health provider.

The entire experience from beginning to end was above and beyond any expectations. Complete concierge experience. Everything went exactly as Dr Lublin described how it would occur. The surgery was performed with absolute perfection. Within days of my surgery I was back to my original self. No pain medication required. Everyone involved was efficient, courteous and of the highest form of professionalism. The best medical experience I have ever had in LA. I am extremely grateful for services of Dr Lublin and his team. Dr Lublin is an absolute credit to the medical profession.

Dr. Matthew Lublin is a highly skilled surgeon and made me feel completely at ease. I had my gallbladder removed and my recovery was exactly as he described. Surgery Thursday - back in the office on Monday. He followed up after my surgery and was great during my post operation follow up appointment. I would recommend him to anyone.

I can't possibly recommend Dr. Lublin highly enough. He's beyond fabulous. I had a ruptured appendix, and my internist contacted him to do an emergency appendectomy. It wasn't easy (my appendix was in an odd spot - high rather than low, and buried under my entire colon). Most surgeons would have needed to open me up. Dr. Lublin managed to do it all laparoscopically - at 1:30 in the morning - after answering all my questions kindly and thouroughly. Brilliant surgical and people skills - the best!

I had multiple hernia surgery in late 2016. I was able to get into Dr. Lublin's office quickly--the office is very well run, with the front office staff being extremely polite, expedient and answering several rounds of questions, they were great. Surgery went great, I healed well with virtually no scarring, and everything went pretty much precisely as he described it would in the first visit. And he responded personally to my concerns via phonecalls, so I was really pleased.

Dr. Lublin is a top-notch surgeon. He performed an inguinal hernia repair laparoscopically and the recovery and healing process was quick and with very little discomfort. Although pain meds were prescribed none were needed (and I took none) postoperatively. I would recommend this physician without reservation!

Dr. Lublin was great at explaining the procedure to me and what to expect at the office visit. Appointments were easy to schedule and scheduling the surgery was easy as well. Everything went well and exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Dr. Lublin, I healed quickly and was able to get back to my normal activity quicker than I had imagined. I would recommend him to anyone.

After discovering that I had an inguinal hernia, I spent about 1 month trying to find the best surgeon in Los Angeles to do the surgery. After much research, I decided to go with Dr Lublin. I had the surgery 7 weeks ago, and I am very pleased that I choose Dr Lublin. If you need hernia surgery, Dr Lublin is the person to do it. It was laparoscopic, and the recovery time was super fast(started feeling much better after 2-3 days) and 1 week later I was like new without any complications.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lublin! From the moment I met him and his staff, I knew I was in good hands. I had surgery and I never had no side effects from anything. Very friendly and explained everything we needed to know. I travel 2 hrs to see Dr Lublin and well worth it!! I always show up early for my appointment and I always get in early. So glad he could help me in my weight loss journey!
