I would recommend Dr. Hodin to anyone needing surgery. I had multiple procedures performed by Dr. Hodin and had great outcomes in each. He is honest, straightforward, very responsive and most importantly a very good and caring doctor.

I recently had thyroid surgery with Dr Hodin. His caring, relaxed demeanor, made the experience much easier.I found him to be very informative, listening to ALL my questions, never feeling rushed, and explaining it in terms I could understand, The clinical staff was great as well. I also give a big THANK YOU, to his assistant Kristen, who was on top of all the paperwork, and so easy to work with, when questions came up. I could not have been in better hands !!!!

Dr. Hodin performed an emergency operation on me. I am grateful that he was on call that weekend. In the days following he came to check on me each day and answered all of my questions. A++++++

Dr. Hodin performed my thyroidectomy in September of 2016. The operation was very smooth and three hours after its end i was on my way home. Dr. Hodin was extremely professional and nice throughout the experience, along with the rest of his staff.
