Dr McCulloch surgically removed a large cyst from my right thumb. He was very informative before and after thr procedure. He and his staff were pleasant and comforting. The appointment times were prompt. I was impressed by the courteousness and professionalism of his staffing. I would recommend Dr McCulloch.

Wonderful Dr! He made my surgery easy. I had carpal tunnel surgery two years ago and was afraid to get the other hand done. I was told about Dr McCullough and went and saw him. My surgery went wonderful! 75% less Pain then last time. He was very gentle and kind! ! I will always be grateful. Thank you Billie Verdu

I had carpal release surgery performed by Dr. McCulloch on both hands 4 weeks apart in September, 2016, and the process from office visits to surgery was terrific. They own their own surgical hospital in Washington, PA, so the operating experience was surprisingly pleasant. The only other patients there were those undergoing procedures from Advanced Orthopedics. The nurses and support staff were all very friendly. The outpatient surgical experience was as fast and efficient as you could expect.

I actually enjoy going to see Dr. McCulloch. Always the perfect gentleman but most important a great and knowledgeable doctor. I would never consider seeing anyone else. I have deep respect for this man and the entire practice.

I have had 6 trigger finger surgeries, thumb had osteomyeolitis surgery and a finger surgery for an ingrown nail with fungus from arthritis, all separate surgeries, Dr. McCulloch has been very informative,kind,gentle and compassionate. I would recommend him to anyone. My medical doctor referred him to me after another hand surgeon had sent me to a dermatologist for my thumb???? He got me in for an emergency visit right before he went on vacation! What a wonderful doctor.

My experience was very positive. Carpatunnel surgery was clearly explained. Surgery went as explained. No anesthesia required. Recovery was as explained. Result was excellent.

I selected Dr. McCulloch for my carpal release surgery based on his health grade rating. I was extremely satisfied with the entire experience. He, his staff and the facility is top notch! Dr. McCulloch is a true professional and his expertise ensured a favorable outcome. I couldn't be more happier! Thank you for your dedication and service!

Excellent Doctor. Kind and thorough. Dr. McCulloch did my elbow surgery and I couldn't feel better! Highly recommend him!
in Washington, PA |
Very dismissive when speaking, interrupted often before hearing full thought or concern. Unwilling to talk out other courses of treatment once he heard another Doctor whom he was friends with performed an unsuccessful surgery.
Washington, PA |
I was referred to Dr. McCulloch by my trusted PCP. Dr. McCulloch has a pleasant demeanor. He listened to and answered all of my questions. He displayed knowledge and skill prior to, during, and after my procedure. I would definitely see him again should the need arise and would recommend him to my friends and family.
New York, NY |
Not a people person. Smart but interaction with children is dismissive and poor.
in Smithfield, PA |
Dr. McCulloch is friendly and professional. Surgery went flawlessly and I left the practice with a form to mail in rating the doctor and the practice. Henceforth I'll call this practice first when arranging medical services.
