Highly recommend Dr McLaughlin and his staff. From the time I called for an appointment, walked into the office, through surgery and follow-up appointments I felt like I was thier #1priority. Thank you Dr McLaughlin and staff for getting me through this very stressed period so quickly. If I ever have a similar issue in the future I would not hesitate to request Dr McLaughlin as my surgeon of choice.

I was referred to Dr. McLaughlin 3 years for Basel Cell Carcinoma surgery. Immediately we were struck by the professional friendliness of his office. Dr. McLaughlin is an outstanding surgeon with a that makes him easy and comfortable to talk to. This January we again saw Dr. McLaughlin. The office staff, again, was efficient, know their patients and warmly greet them by name. An outstanding feature to us was Dr. McLaughlin never overbooks. The wait time is short. Highly recommend..

He performed a gallbladder and hernia surgery. Was very professional and trustworthy.
in Rockledge, FL |
I went to Dr. McLaughlin for a surgical consult for my hernia. He was not able to do my surgery because he no longer has access to the hospital that my insurance fits. Yet he gave me sage empathetic advice and directed me to a different physician that he trusts. He and his staff gave me attention, compassion, and time. I would not hesitate what so ever to direct anyone to this caring, compassionate healer.

You couldn't ask for a better staff. They are helpful above and beyond the call of duty. Dr McLaughlin has a great bedside manner. Took time to explain things. My 2-3 inch incision looks like it will leave minimal scaring. I highly recommend Dr M.

As a New patient who spends winters in Florida, I had to have a surgeon evaluate an issue that was found by my northern Doctor! I called the office and was immediately given an appt. I had my records sent and Dr M was very well prepared for my appt. He was thorough, concerned, and very professional! I felt as if I have known him for years! Thank you to the Dr and his very helpful staff!
