I have been a patient of Dr. Michael McLaughlin since he began his practice. He has always been the most thoughtful, considerate, and trustworthy doctor you could ever have. He always took the time to answer any questions I might have and was always there to reassure me. He is someone you trust completely. When my daughter moved to another state he took the time to call and give her advice after a busy day of seeing patients and I will never forget his act of kindness. He is one of the best!

I had an arm mass excised by Dr. Mclaughlin. I cannot say enough about how satisfied I about the preop appt., surgery, the receptionnist, the nurse. Dr. Mclaughlin patiently and clearly explained my procedure at preop visit. During my surgery he clearly explained what he was doing while the sweet nurse was very attentive to me, making sure I was ok. Dr. Mclaughlin is the surgeon to go to if you want a knowledgable, caring, and patient surgeon. I feel blessed to have him as my surgeon.

Unfortunately I had to have my gallbladder removed. Fortunately, I chose Dr. McGlaughlin. He & his office staff were so good to me. The staff was very helpful in scheduling & filing insurance papers for me, not to mention just making me feel like I have known them forever. Dr. McGlaughlin was right there for me when I went through the ER. He came in on a Sunday and did the surgery! I feel better than I have in a long time! Thanks Dr. Mike, I’m proud to call you My surgeon. You’re the best!
