From initial visit through surgery all explained and any questions / concerns addressed. I was made comfortable from entering surgery center until departure. All interaction was positive.

Everything was explained very well and everything went as explained. Everyone had been patient and very understanding. I knew exactly what to expect. The recovery was very easy. Beautiful facility, it’s definitely a great choice for surgery.

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.
