This is the second surgery that I have entrusted to Dr. Churgin. She is not only a true professional , she is an expert in her field of body contour and plastic surgery. She is also an amazing women , juggling her multiple offices, multiple hospital affiliations and her patients. The beautiful part is that she makes her patients feel like they are the only thing at that moment, and they are. I would recommend anyone to Dr Churgin and my compliments are not easy to earn,

in Flushing, NY |
A reduction mammoplasty performed in July 2016. I had some surgical complications. Dr. Churgin's skills, knowledge and competency are stellar. She exudes confidence and she is THAT good. I feel very fortunate to have found her online. Never in my life have I felt so well taken care of by a doctor. She is busy and in high demand but made herself super available to personally attend to me twice a day after I was admitted to a stay of a few days in the hospital.
in West Babylon, NY |
Dr. Churgin is brilliant and does not comprise safety first. My primary surgery was necessary with my breast and my abdominoplasty was elective both clearly explained and were done at the same time. The before care, surgery, and the surgical results was wonderful and more than I could have imagined. This is Dr. Churgin's philosophy using advanced liposuction techniques and methods and expecting nothing less. Her primary goal is comfort and creating peace of mind. You are in the right place.

I had surgery with Dr Churgin last November for a breast reduction following a 140 lb weight loss. Had my yearly Mammo yesterday and .the tech said she could not event tell from looking at me that I had a reduction and looked at my scars. She was amazed and commented how fine lined the scars were and only after 7 months. She said you had some surgeon, this was a beautiful surgery. So from my mouth to your ears thank you Dr Churgin. Even a mammo tech pays you compliments.
in Deer Park, NY |
Dr. Churgin removed my breast implants due to deflation after breast cancer reconstruction 19 years ago. I opted not to replace the implants and I couldn't be happier. I found Dr. Churgin to be very personable and patient with any questions I had. She is very thorough in explaining the operation and very detail oriented. Her staff, especially Kathy, is excellent in arranging all the hospital details and getting an appointment is very easy. I would highly recommend Dr. Churgin!
in New York, NY |
I recently wound up in the ER with an eye which had been split wide open. Dr. Churgin diid a flawless job stitching me back together. The scars are hardly visible. My experience that evening in the ER and in follow-up with Dr. Churgin and her staff the following week was extremely pleasant. These are caring, comforting professionals with a very personal touch. I look forward to my next visit!

Dr. Churgin is an incredible surgeon and I feel very lucky that she treated my 2 year old daughter. My daughter was rushed into the emergency room on Christmas Eve after being severely scratched by a dog on her face. Dr. Churgin knew exactly what to do so that our daughter would not have scarring. She did an excellent job and she is very professional, informative and caring. Her office staff is incredibly helpful and care deeply about the patients. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Incredibly happy that I went to Dr Churgin for my procedures (abdominoplasty so far). She's thorough in every aspect of strategizing the procedures I want, patient and detailed in answering the ton of questions I had, and made me feel reassured in my health and well being for every step I've gone through so far. All of her staff is friendly and helpful, and very organized. I'm happy with all my results so far and would recommend her to anyone!
Great results! Highly recommend. I had rhinoplasty and scar revision. After healing, everything looks fantastic!

Dr. Churgin is a superb plastic surgeon. She did excellent work on my nose after I had Mohs surgery. She completed the surgery efficiently with a calm hand, while reassuring me about the good outcome, and thereby lifting my spirits. I shall highly recommend Dr. Churgin to all my friends and relatives. Should I need any future plastic surgery, I will always choose Dr. Churgin. With best regards Helga Brenner

She makes her patients feel very comfortable and does an excellent job. I would recommend anyone to visit her if they we're interested in plastic surgery.
in Woodmere, NY |
If your reading this review you must be looking for a plastic surgeon, STOP READING and make an appointment, it will be the best choice you ever made. I am now 6 month post up and could not be more pleased. I no longer have any pain in my breasts, back or rib cage.There are no words to express my appreciation, but she will always hold a special place in my heart. I consider her not only my Dr. but my friend. Sometime people will say only God can perform miracles but that's not true.
in Long Island, NY |
I am currently 3 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation with Dr. Churgin and have nothing but praise for Dr. Churgin and her entire office. After coming across her practice, I immediately knew I would be in good hands. Dr. Churgin's level of expertise is evidenced through each conversation we have and I could have not asked for more from a doctor. On top of that I've been overly impressed with the post op care and contact. Absolutely in love with my results, and would highly recommend to all!

She was very friendly and knowledgeable and professional
New York, NY |
I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Churgin: all completely successful. She takes the time to explain in detail what is involved for both pre-op and post-op. She is completely honest about what to expect. She always takes the time to answer all of a patient's questions. I highly recommend her for cosmetic or non-cosmetic surgery.
