Kind words from our patients

Tim E.

I wanted to thank you again for removing my appendix this month. Your calm and professional approach made me feel I was in good hands. My scars are healing nicely and I was able to visit my family in England and celebrate my mother’s 82nd birthday

Melissa S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Lublin. He was friendly and took his time to hear my concerns. I appreciate his kind bed side manner, it helps with the nerves. Hopefully I will not be seeing him again but if I have to get under the knife again I feel confident in Dr. Lublin.

Bridgette D.

I had a great experience with Dr. Lublin. He took a very large lipoma tumor out from my hip, and I am thrilled with the results. My hips are even and I do not have this ugly protrusion sticking out. I healed quickly and had little or no pain. Dr. Lublin was very kind and professional and I truly appreciate what he did for me.

Casey B

My experience with your surgical services was excellent. The first office visit put me at ease, your friendliness and professionalism was just what was needed. The care during and after surgery was first rate and my recovery was speedy and without incident. Since then I have had no problems and if asked would certainly recommend you as a surgeon.

David S

I have recovered from my May 2011 surgery. I was very pleased with the surgical correction of my blockage and the competency of Dr. Lublin. I am particularly grateful for the after surgery care by Dr. L - he was patient over a 6 week period which it took to heal my wounds. Dr. L was always available to render care and give me reassurance. I would recommend Dr Lublin with enthusiasm.

Ken P

You know I revere you. You are a gifted surgeon and diagnostician. Everyone I know in the community seems to independently agree with my assessment. You are also kind and honest, and never condescending. You are a mensch in every sense of the term.

Matt S

The surgery and your skills with the procedure have literally given me my life back. Thanks,
