Patient Reviews (9)
New York, NY |
I really can't recommend Dr. Culligan enough. Every aspect of this surgery, from pre surgery office visits to post operative care, Dr. Culligan was always accessible. He listened carefully to everything I had to say, all questions I asked. He took time to respond and to explain exactly what was going on and how he would resolve it. He carefully and clearly explained options. His manner is polite, caring and confident. I am very grateful for having been referred to him.

I was impressed with Dr. Culligans' staff from the time I made my initial appointment. The front office was polite and the medical assistants were professional. Irina Katz, NP was compassionate. Dr. Culligan was amazing. He was gentle and reassuring during his examination; he spent time explaining the procedure and I am very pleased with the result.
in Avon by the Sea, NJ |
It was an excellent decision to put my condition in the hands of a very thorough, competent and self-assured physician as Dr. Culligan. Not only did he perform a successful surgery, he collaborated with other experts to ensure a comprehensive approach to my care. His gentle demeanor and professionalism before, during and after my hospital stay has been consistent. He is reachable, approachable and sincerely interested in my well being. His staff and Nurse Practioner have the same philosophy.
New York, NY |
It is rare to come across a physician like Dr. Culligan. He spent time answering all of my questions and really put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Culligan to anyone in search of a uro-gyno.
in Bayside, NY |
Dr. Culligan is the kind of phycisian that one only rarely finds. He is a skilled surgeon and someone who can relate to patients in a way that makes them comfortable enough to ask questions. He is clear in explaining procedures and his demeanor is calm and reassuring. I never felt that I was bothering Dr. Culligan with my questions and post- surgery I knew that I could call him with my concerns. Calliope Sullivan

I was looking for a top notch uro-gynecologist and was recommended to Dr. Culligan. He spent a lot of time with me explaining various procedures, my options and the success rate of each. He has a great bed side manner and I felt I was in very competent hands for my surgery. I would definitely recommend both Dr. Culligan and his staff.
Dr. Culligan came highly recommended. He is an excellent surgeon with outstanding bedside manner.
in Sparta, NJ |
I am eternally grateful to Dr. Culligan for the outstanding care he gave me. He not only did a wonderful job on my surgery, but he was always there for me every step of the way. He is known for being a great surgeon, but he is a great person too. He really cares. I feel wonderful. We miss him in New Jersey, but he told me that he would open a NJ office location soon. Either way, it's worth the trip into the city to see him.
in Short Hills, NJ |
Dr. Culligan was recommended to me by two different friends and 3 different doctors. When I met him, I could easily see why. He listened to me and didn't rush. He offered me options that included no surgery. He gave me several surgical options (with or without use of mesh). I trust him. I was going to him in his Summit office, but now I will have to see him in the city.
