Verified Patient Reviews
i had a very good consultation with Dr. Churgin, she was very informative & very professional.
This was my first time meeting her and both her and her medical assistant were lively, and I felt comfortable. Dr. Churgin told me exactly how the procedure will go and what I needed to do in the mean time. I’m still breastfeeding so she recommended that we wait a few months before operating. The Manhattan Office is modern and chic. Dr. Churgin made me feel like I knew her forever! I put off having a breast reduction before because I didn’t feel like the surgeon cared about me but Dr. Churgin was so down to earth and funny!!! Looking forward to my breast reduction.
Ive had a few consultations, dr churgin was by far the best! She took time to build rapport (not just "how is the weather"). She also made me feel comfortable and ensured i understood exaclty how things would turn out. Highly reccommend paying the consultation fee, you get what you pay for!
Did not take my insurance even though website and zocdoc said she did. I was talked into taking the appointment anyway and that they would find a way to work it out with my insurance. Had to bring cash for the consult which was not covered by insurance. No one really knew what they were doing there with insurance. It seemed like every step of the way was new and insurmountable for them. Maybe they're just not used to people having insurance? Unclear. The doctor herself was nice and seemed competent but it was such a disorganized mess other than that.
Dr. Churgin was excellent-very friendly, answered all my questions, and even showed me great before and afters of someone with a similar procedure. Highly recommend this office.
While meeting with Dr. Churgin this evening, we covered a lot of information. Dr. Churgin answered every question I had and made me feel confident in making my decision. I didn't feel rushed; I did feel important.
Amazing. Very nice, patient and understanding. Will be back!
Dr. Churgin was very good in explaining how the procedure and the stops that needed to be done. I didn't feel belittled or feel like my problem was trivial. She answered my questions in all entirerity and never left feeling confused. You won't regret to to see her. P.s wait time was a little long but it was because of the paper work. Tara(?) the assistant at front was really sweet
She's very nice and a great doctor, only complain is the long wait time.
She was nice. Wait time was ridiculous
Thoughtful and caring doctor.
Nice office staff and very comfortable with Dr. Churgin. She answered all questions and made me feel at ease. I was early for appointment and she was still in surgery so I had to wait but the staff offered me coffee and kept apologizing for the wait. I would recommend going to her. Pleasant visit.
Very nice.. honest and helpful.. she cares
Dr. Churgin is a caring, careful and skilled surgeon. Her manner with me as her patient was very thoughtful and thorough.
Very nice staff they treated me well didn't like the wait time but the overall experience and consultation was exceptional I will recommend anyone to this doctor. Very pleasant staff and pristine office beautiful place when you go in the main office
I went through surgery with this doctor in December 2016 after an October 2016 initial consult. She did an excellent job and her office staff is really nice to everyone. Very happy with my choice.
Dr. Churgin was simultaneously professional and down to earth. I felt very comfortable with her. She answered all my questions thoroughly - I felt as if I was in very good hands. She was my third consult and it looks like I have found someone I trust to have surgery with..
She was very nice and professional. I did not feel rushed at all. I felt like she really wanted to pick the best choice for me and answer all my questions. I didn't like the wait time but I do feel satisfied with the staff and their kindness and professionalism.
Excellent communicator...spent a great deal of time with me.
Thorough, explains procedures well, highly organized and a lovely bedside manner.
She was very pleasant she listens and went trough every detail with me
Nice lady, very knowledgeable about issues relating to plastic surgery.
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!
It was an initial consultation, so it's hard to say. I liked Dr. Churgin but did not have confidence in her assistant. The assistant was scattered and left very personal information of other patients right on the desk when she wasn't even in the room. I do feel confident that Dr. Churgin is good at what she does. Also, I made my appointment on ZocDoc but they didn't have me in the system even though I received an email confirmation.
Beautiful office. Really friendly/helpful staff. The doctor explained everything very carefully.
The wait time was very long, but Dr. Churgin is very nice and personable, easy to talk to.
I would highly recommend Dr. Churgin. I am so glad that I did my research and found her. She is personable, professional and highly talented in her field. The best decision I ever made!
My experience exceeded my expectations, dr. Churgin and her staff were very helpful and welcoming. From the first conversation with one of the staff I felt I was going to the right place, and that was absolutely confirmed with my visit.
Dr. Churgin was terrific!!! She was very attentive, warm and friendly. I did not feel rushed during my consultation. Dr. Churgin was very patient with me...( I asked so many questions). Her staff was also amazing! They were helpful and caring. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Churgin.
Dr Churgin is absolutely fantastic - incredibly honest and friendly during my consultation. Same goes for her staff as well. Highly recommended!
I love Dr. Churgin. She's amazing. Smart, friendly, honest and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for any plastic surgery.
I LOVE Dr. Churgin. She was everything the reviewers here said she was - nice, direct, warm, honest, and informative. She was everything I wanted her to be. I am very excited to be working with her. Plus, her entire staff is warm and friendly and welcoming. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Wonderful doctor; excellent in making further recommendations, if reason for visit is outside her competence.
The staff is sooo sweet. Called me to confirm my appointment and worked with my insurance to make sure I get the appropriate medical attention I needed. It's very difficult to find an office with good staff now a days who aren't rude, or mean. They are very nice and considerate here.
VERY INFORMATIVE. SHE SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT THE PATIENT MORE THAN THE $$$$. APPERICATED HER KNOWLEDGE INSIGHT.
I had a keloid on my side burns, but my first excision with a different surgeon failed and my keloid returned and even bigger than before. I decided to do my homework and research a better surgeon. I had booked about 5 surgeons to see but after meeting with Dr Churgin, I was certain she was going to do a great job. She had general knowledge about the procedure. She did operate and had a scar revision. The follow up has been great, not only did I have my pretty face and smile restored, I also got back my confidence. She has polite and courteous staff. I will definitely recommend her.
