Dr. MacKoul is knowledgeable of the area. He explained clearly the condition and gave me two alternative treatment plans. The surgery went really well and I was completely well after 2 weeks.

When I was diagnosed with a 19 pound fibroid, I was stunned but also worried. My primary doctor told me that I would need an open surgery, and possibly a huge incision from groin to belly button. When I spoke to Dr. Paul MacKoul, however, he was confident that he could perform my surgery laparoscopically. He was true to his word. I had my surgery three weeks before Christmas, stopped taking pain pills after 3 days, was back to work in two weeks, and just a month later my scars were practically invisible. Couldn't be happier!

The surgery techniques that this Center uses are so incredibly astounding and innovative, I almost can’t believe my own eyes. I wish I could give this place more stars for my review. Dr. MacKoul and his entire team literally saved my life. I spent 4 years looking for an answer to explain all of my ailments, and Dr. MacKoul solved it in less than 4 minutes. After having a DualPortGYN®, minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy I instantly felt better than I had in the past 23 years of my life. Literally all of my pains were completely gone. I was in their surgical center for less than 3 hours for this major surgery and 12 hours later I was out walking my dogs. No hospital stay, no noticeable incisions of any kind on my body, but entire organs were removed. How amazing is that? 6 weeks recovery the old fashioned way, or 12 hours with The Center for Innovative GYN Care.

The staff was so friendly, the ppl at Innovative surgery center went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of! I came from Atlanta to Maryland to have Dr. Mackoul preform a laparoscopic myomectomy. I didn't like what I was being told in Atlanta! Dr. Mackoul called me and went over everything with me, his staff was extremely attentive, everything was set up before I got here. Dr. Mackoul was very thorough and my surgery went as planned smoothly. His operating nurses were top notch and so friendly! The anesthesiologist was great. Recovery was amazing because my recovery nurse really catered to me. I had a 15 centimeter fibroid removed through two small incisions. Im resting now at my hotel. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mackoul for your fibroid procedure! Thanks Dr. Mackoul for saving my uterus and taking great care of me!

Did not properly diagnose the extent of the procedure and associated recovery. Likewise his remedy for post-op problem was less than optimal

Dr Mackoul was my surgeon back in 2005 when I was first diagnosed with firbroids. Because of the amazing job he did then I reached out to CIGC when I my symptoms came back but even worse 10 years later. Best decision I ever made was to reach out to Dr Mackoul again. All these years later he remembered me. He was great then and even better now. I felt at easy with my decision right away and can believe how normal I felt a week after the procedure. I will never regret my decision to have my fibroids removed by D Mackoul at the Center for Innovative GYN care. I was back to work within a week and back to myself, my life within 2 weeks. I started a new job just a month before this diagnoses and couldn't afford any time out of the office. I was able to work remotely during my recovery week and was back to work and my colleagues had no idea I had a major medical procedure. Now I'm one step closer to the baby I want.

Dr. MacKoul did a great job explaining my condition. I felt assured to have him perform my surgery. I had been looking for a great Dr in a long long time. He is an answered prayer. Professional, competent staff, strive to go above and beyond to resolve any issues. Post-op nursing staff was excellent. Dr. MacKoul is simply exceptional.

Dr. Mackoul is terribly self-absorbed, to the point of nasty. I've never been more frustrated trying to speak with any doctor. Maybe the staff have improved over time, but I cannot imagine that Dr. Mackoul has learned to be a human.
