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.
