I recently had minor surgery done by Dr. McLaughlin. He has done several others (minor) in the past and I would recommend him to anyone. He and his staff are very kind and caring. He is very thorough in anything he does. I give him an A+. PS: he also did surgery on my late husband.

Was referred to Dr. McLaughlin by another physician for surgery. When I met with him he said that I didn't need surgery and took it upon himself to review my records with a pathologist and another surgery who concurred with him. Well worth the copay!
