Verified Patient Reviews
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
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.
