EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH HER

I was lucky enough to see Dr. Churgin today, the same day I called. I had a biking accident and my finger still wasn’t healing from my previous trip to an ER clinic. She took the time evaluating my finger and then cleaned and dressed my wound. I was extremely impressed with her, she was kind and caring and patient with me. I would definitely recommend using her. The office staff is friendly and they are very interested in helping patients.

CONFIDENCE IN EVERYTHING SHE’S DOING. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

This whole experience has been a relief ever since my appointments with Dr. Churgin. She did a skin debridement on my thigh and I had a follow up appointment to change the wound vac dressing. She continues to be very thorough and understanding which gives me a lot of confidence in everything she’s doing. Highly recommend.

MY NOSE COULD NOT LOOK ANY MORE NATURAL AND I AM SO HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME.

Dr. Churgin and her staff made me feel more than comfortable during my first visit in regards to a rhinoplasty. She listened to my concerns and was able to produce excellent results. My nose could not look any more natural and I am so happy with the outcome. If you’re considering a procedure I highly recommend Dr. Churgin as your surgeon!

WOULDN’T HESITATE TO GO TO HER AGAIN

I went to Dr. Churgin for my breast reduction and was very happy. She is so intelligent and skilled, and her resume really reflects that. She worked closely with my primary doctor and rheumatologist, and I would describe her as cautious and thorough. I had a hard time finding a surgeon because I was over a 30 BMI, even though I was in really awful pain. Dr. Churgin took me as a patient anyway and worked with me throughout the entire process. I wouldn’t hesitate to go to her again.

VERY PROFESSIONAL

I had a very good experience with Dr. Churgin. This was my first surgery (mammoplasty) and I was extremely nervous and anxious about the procedure even though I knew I wanted to have it done. Dr. Churgin made me extremely comfortable with her, I was able to visit her multiple times and speak to her about all my concerns. She did not rush me with my decision but was very helpful. She is very professional and you truly feel you are in good hands with her and you definitely are!

Dr. Churgin is a superb plastic surgeon. She did excellent work on my nose after I had Mohs surgery. She completed the surgery efficiently with a calm hand, while reassuring me about the good outcome, and thereby lifting my spirits. I shall highly recommend Dr. Churgin to all my friends and relatives. Should I need any future plastic surgery, I will always choose Dr. Churgin. With best regards Helga Brenner

KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PROFESSIONAL

From start to finish, this was an excellent experience. This was my first time enquiring about botox or restylane or a facelift and I was nervous and excited about the possibilities. Dr. Churgin was confident, friendly and just plain easy to talk to. I felt comfortable with her right away. She listened closely to my areas of concern and addressed each and every one of them. She also took plenty of time with me and explained step by step each injection and the overall process. The front of the house staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Also, the office was immaculately clean. The day after my injections, the office followed up to see how I was doing and answered all my questions. They also did a second follow up call the next day. Bottom line: Was I happy? Will I go back? Would I recommend Dr Churgin? The answer is Yes, Yes and Yes!!!

If your reading this review you must be looking for a plastic surgeon, STOP READING and make an appointment, it will be the best choice you ever made. I am now 6 month post up and could not be more pleased. I no longer have any pain in my breasts, back or rib cage.There are no words to express my appreciation, but she will always hold a special place in my heart. I consider her not only my Dr. but my friend. Sometime people will say only God can perform miracles but that’s not true.

I am currently 3 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation with Dr. Churgin and have nothing but praise for Dr. Churgin and her entire office. After coming across her practice, I immediately knew I would be in good hands. Dr. Churgin’s level of expertise is evidenced through each conversation we have and I could have not asked for more from a doctor. On top of that I’ve been overly impressed with the post op care and contact. Absolutely in love with my results, and would highly recommend to all!

I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Churgin: all completely successful. She takes the time to explain in detail what is involved for both pre-op and post-op. She is completely honest about what to expect. She always takes the time to answer all of a patient’s questions. I highly recommend her for cosmetic or non-cosmetic surgery.

A WONDERFUL SURGEON

From the first phone call, I knew I had chosen the practice and doctor for my surgery. From Cathy, to Mrs Churgin to Alan to Helen, each staff member has their own personality but bundle them all together and you get friendly and efficient service. From my initial call with Cathy and Mrs Churgin, I felt like a family member not a patient, They worked with me and my crazy work schedule as well as with my insurance, All I had to do was be compliant and show up for my consultation, Once I met Dr. Churgin, I knew for sure I was in great hands and that all my anxiety and worries would be solved. Dr. Churgin is a warm, passionate person who has a personality that is only surpassed by her genuine smile and skill She reflects confidence to her patients as sits and listens and actually addresses you questions and concerns . The night before my surgery was scheduled, I began to panic and sure enough, there was Dr. Churgin, calling me in the evening to put everything into perspective. I came thru the surgery with flying colors and have to thank D Churgin for it all. Every day post op until my follow up appointment (6 days later) Cathy or Alan would do their “check in” call. It made you feel that you were not alone and that everyone genuinely cared about how you came thru the surgery and how the recovery was coming . I feel truly blessed to be part of Dr. Churgin’s :”professional” family and would highly recommend her and her practice for any general surgery and/or plastic surgery. Putting it all together: Great personality, unsurmountable skills, board certified in both Surgery and Plastic Surgery and an additional fellowship in Body Contouring plus great office staff. You can’t ask for better1

SHE GAVE ME WHAT GOD DIDN’T.

My breast reduction is now 3 months post op and I could not be more pleased. For most of my life I have been very large breasted (40G) and always in pain. I was always ashamed of my appearance. I made an appointment several months back with Dr. Churgin and I never looked back. Dr. Churgin provides a level of care that you just don’t find anymore. She was genuinely interested in me and my health concerns. She took her time and answered all my questions, she explained every step of the procedures thoroughly. She has been my life saver. Her post op care is the best. Dr. Churgin is the most compassionate Doctor I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I would also be remiss if I did not say thank you to Mrs. Churgin and Kathy for all there help in getting me approved by my insurance company. Mrs. Churgin was very direct in explaining what was covered and what was not and even when we did have an issues with the insurance payment, Mrs. Churgin made sure the situation was fixed 100%. All of the Staff, including Alan and Kathy and Helen are the most capable, caring and professional staff I have ever met. There are no more words to express my gratitude. Thank you all.

AMAZING SURGEON

Dr. Churgin performed a bilateral breast reduction on me about two weeks ago. She is an amazing surgeon and I would absolutely recommend her, their is truly not one bad thing to say about my experience with her. She is kind and caring and after only 2 weeks post op I feel and look great! She worked hard to get my reduction combined with another breast surgeon in order to remove a fibroadenoma at the same time. She recommended this because she really wanted to do what was best for my health. l am 100 percent happy with my results and owe all my happiness to Dr. Churgin. Her staff is just as caring as she is and Cathy went above and beyond with checking on me and making sure everything went smoothly . Having Dr. Churgin perform my surgery was the best decision I could have made!.

COULDN’T BE HAPPIER.

I came across Dr. Churgin while reasearching more deeply into a surgeon with whom I had already booked a procedure with. After reading the reviews on my current doctor and comparing them to the rave reviews of Dr. Churgin I knew I needed to switch over to her practice. Upon calling to discuss with Doctor Churgin’s office, I spoke with Kathy who was beyond accommodating and put me in touch with Mrs. Churgin (the office administrator) who took the time to call and speak with me for almost 2 hours!! On the phone Mrs. Churgin answered all of my questions, provided me with advice, and even worked with Kathy to schedule an appointment with Dr. Churgin for the following day. When I went to the office I was blown away by the super friendly staff, the ease of filling out paperwork with Allan, and the cleanliness. I then met with Doctor Churgin who is the nicest, most thorough Doctor that I have EVER met. At no point did I feel any question was too silly to ask, or that I was being rushed. She took the time to take precise body measurements and fill me in on all possible options for surgery. The amount of confidence I have in her surgical skills cannot be put into words and I cannot wait to have my procedure done!

VERY PROFESSIONAL

Dr Churgin was/is very professional. I had MOHS surgery on the bridge of my nose and was concerned with scarring. Within 2 weeks there was not a trace of the 16 stitches. It is a year later now and unless pointed out, no one would know I had surgery. Just went back for another MOHS and I will see how this one looks after the stitches are removed. She, by the way, is a delightful young lady.

GREAT SUCCESS

I have gone to her for 2 different surgeries that were both extremely important. The fact that I trust her very much with the most important procedures I ever had to go through in my entire life says a lot. She was very thurough with the process of both surgeries before and after the procedure took place. Set aside from each procedure being a great success she spent a lot of time during my post operation appointments making sure I recovered perfectly.

STAFF ARE POSITIVE, PROFESSIONAL AND WARM

I went for 2 consultations with Dr Churgin. Dr Churgin gave generously of her time. I did not feel rushed and had all my questions answered with kindness and compassion. The office staff are positive, professional, and warm. I decided to have Dr Churgin do my surgery and paid not only her fee in full, but anesthesia and use of the hospital for pre-op testing as well. The only that was preventing me from having the surgery right away, was that I wanted to do it while my daughter was home from college so she could help with my post-op recovery. Just before she was to come home for winter break, I had emergency surgery on my hand which then became infected post-op. I have not yet been cleared by the Infectous Disease doctor. I am just waiting for my hand to heal so that I can finally have surgery done.by Dr Churgin.

Any time I had a question during “off” hours, she was always there to answer her cell phone. Her team is just as amazing as her.

PROFESSIONAL AND GENUINE INTEREST
 
Dr. Churgin demonstrated professionalism and interest on my case. She got out of her way to care for me seeing how stressed I was about knowing what I actually had. She did not just do her job, she got out of the way and was thoughtful/creative enough to do the procedure in a manner that I would not be left with scarring. Sadly to say, but now a days it is hard to find caring and humane doctors like she is.

Dr. Churgin was incredible when it came to answer my thousands of questions and concerns. From day one, she was incredibly supportive. My insurance originally did not want to cover this reduction, though for years it caused pain and suffering. Dr. Churgin recognized this and set up a meeting with my insurance to assure them this surgery was truly medically necessary. On the day of the surgery, she was extremely calm and comforting, resulting in a worry-free operation. This surgery was life changing for me and without Dr. Churgin, I don’t think I would have ever went through with it. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Churgin for a breast reduction, or any plastic surgery for that matter.

My five-star review reflects this doctor’s excellent surgical skills and personable manner. She is direct, informative and knowledgeable about plastic surgery. In addition, she is flexible and realistic about developing expectations. Dr. Churgin knows what she’s doing when it comes to procedures, and you will feel comfortable with her. I had less of a great time with her office. Her staff members are amiable and responsive – they always pick up the phone, and they do their best to help. However, it is very difficult to get an answer from the doctor outside of an appointment, whether by phone or email. Her staff members contradicted each other on major points such as price, payment and medical information. Personally I found this very frustrating. With this office it’s best to nail down everything in person and in writing. It is certainly a busy place, and you could definitely do a lot worse in terms of back-office interaction, but it’s not the best either. Having dealt with several plastic surgeons over my lifetime for various reasons, I don’t regret choosing this surgeon. She did great work, was pleasant to talk to, and provided detailed follow-up care. But, be prepared with a strong relationship with your PCP and specialists (oncologist, etc.), all of your own documentation, and handle questions and arrangements while at the office and in writing, or you’ll have a headache on your hands.

Dr. Churgin is brilliant and does not comprise safety first. My primary surgery was necessary with my breast and my abdominoplasty was elective both clearly explained and were done at the same time. The before care, surgery, and the surgical results was wonderful and more than I could have imagined. This is Dr. Churgin’s philosophy using advanced liposuction techniques and methods and expecting nothing less. Her primary goal is comfort and creating peace of mind. You are in the right place.

I had surgery with Dr Churgin last November for a breast reduction following a 140 lb weight loss. Had my yearly Mammo yesterday and .the tech said she could not event tell from looking at me that I had a reduction and looked at my scars. She was amazed and commented how fine lined the scars were and only after 7 months. She said you had some surgeon, this was a beautiful surgery. So from my mouth to your ears thank you Dr Churgin.

I cannot say enough about how Dr. Churgin helped me through what was a very difficult process for me especially my fears and angst. Not only is her staff knowledgeable, friendly, and on task, they also have a level of compassion that is rarely seen in today’s medical world. Dr. Churgin’s skills amazed me and her thoroughness helped me to safe in her hands. I am so glad i found her and was able to use her valuable services to help me along my next phase of this life. I would highly recommend her and i already have to someone close to me who is having a similar issue. My surgery was bittersweet and thank you Dr. Churgin and the entire staff !

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!

I went for 2 consultations with Dr Churgin. Dr Churgin gave generously of her time. I did not feel rushed and had all my questions answered with kindness and compassion. The office staff are positive, professional, and warm. I decided to have Dr Churgin do my surgery and paid not only her fee in full, but anesthesia and use of the hospital for pre-op testing as well. The only that was preventing me from having the surgery right away, was that I wanted to do it while my daughter was home from college so she could help with my post-op recovery. Just before she was to come home for winter break, I had emergency surgery on my hand which then became infected post-op. I have not yet been cleared by the Infectous Disease doctor. I am just waiting for my hand to heal so that I can finally have surgery done.by Dr Churgin.

I have gone to her for 2 different surgeries that were both extremely important. The fact that I trust her very much with the most important procedures I ever had to go through in my entire life says a lot. She was very thurough with the process of both surgeries before and after the procedure took place. Set aside from each procedure being a great success she spent a lot of time during my post operation appointments making sure I recovered perfectly.

Dr. Churgin demonstrated professionalism and interest on my case. She got out of her way to care for me seeing how stressed I was about knowing what I actually had. She did not just do her job, she got out of the way and was thoughtful/creative enough to do the procedure in a manner that I would not be left with scarring. Sadly to say, but now a days it is hard to find caring and humane doctors like she is.

From start to finish, this was an excellent experience. This was my first time enquiring about botox or restylane or a facelift and I was nervous and excited about the possibilities. Dr. Churgin was confident, friendly and just plain easy to talk to. I felt comfortable with her right away. She listened closely to my areas of concern and addressed each and every one of them. She also took plenty of time with me and explained step by step each injection and the overall process. The front of the house staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Also, the office was immaculately clean. The day after my injections, the office followed up to see how I was doing and answered all my questions. They also did a second follow up call the next day. Bottom line: Was I happy? Will I go back? Would I recommend Dr Churgin? The answer is Yes, Yes and Yes!!!

Dr Churgin was/is very professional. I had MOHS surgery on the bridge of my nose and was concerned with scarring. Within 2 weeks there was not a trace of the 16 stitches. It is a year later now and unless pointed out, no one would know I had surgery. Just went back for another MOHS and I will see how this one looks after the stitches are removed. She, by the way, is a delightful young lady.

My daughter was a breast size 38 H and she was bubbling out as that size was too small. She had a lot of pain in back and shoulders. Her posture was was rounded from the weight of her breasts and she has divits in her shoulders. We first sort the help of a physical therapist. After going for several months my daughter still felt the pain. We then decided to get some advice from a plastic surgeon and we thankfully found Dr. Churgin. I did not have high hopes that this would be covered with my insurance Blue Cross Blue Shield but Dr. Churgin and her staff, Alan and Kathy were so helpful. They were able to get the entire procedure covered. All I had to pay was a $25 copay. Today my daughter is so happy. She looks fantastic and best of all the pain is gone.

From the first phone call, I knew I had chosen the practice and doctor for my surgery. From Cathy, to Mrs Churgin to Alan to Helen, each staff member has their own personality but bundle them all together and you get friendly and efficient service. From my initial call with Cathy and Mrs Churgin, I felt like a family member not a patient, They worked with me and my crazy work schedule as well as with my insurance, All I had to do was be compliant and show up for my consultation, Once I met Dr. Churgin, I knew for sure I was in great hands and that all my anxiety and worries would be solved. Dr. Churgin is a warm, passionate person who has a personality that is only surpassed by her genuine smile and skill She reflects confidence to her patients as sits and listens and actually addresses you questions and concerns . The night before my surgery was scheduled, I began to panic and sure enough, there was Dr. Churgin, calling me in the evening to put everything into perspective. I came thru the surgery with flying colors and have to thank D Churgin for it all. Every day post op until my follow up appointment (6 days later) Cathy or Alan would do their “check in” call. It made you feel that you were not alone and that everyone genuinely cared about how you came thru the surgery and how the recovery was coming . I feel truly blessed to be part of Dr. Churgin’s :”professional” family and would highly recommend her and her practice for any general surgery and/or plastic surgery. Putting it all together: Great personality, unsurmountable skills, board certified in both Surgery and Plastic Surgery and an additional fellowship in Body Contouring plus great office staff. You can’t ask for better1

My breast reduction is now 3 months post op and I could not be more pleased. For most of my life I have been very large breasted (40G) and always in pain. I was always ashamed of my appearance. I made an appointment several months back with Dr. Churgin and I never looked back. Dr. Churgin provides a level of care that you just don’t find anymore. She was genuinely interested in me and my health concerns. She took her time and answered all my questions, she explained every step of the procedures thoroughly. She has been my life saver. Her post op care is the best. Dr. Churgin is the most compassionate Doctor I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I would also be remiss if I did not say thank you to Mrs. Churgin and Kathy for all there help in getting me approved by my insurance company. Mrs. Churgin was very direct in explaining what was covered and what was not and even when we did have an issues with the insurance payment, Mrs. Churgin made sure the situation was fixed 100%. All of the Staff, including Alan and Kathy and Helen are the most capable, caring and professional staff I have ever met. There are no more words to express my gratitude. Thank you all.

I came across Dr. Churgin while reasearching more deeply into a surgeon with whom I had already booked a procedure with. After reading the reviews on my current doctor and comparing them to the rave reviews of Dr. Churgin I knew I needed to switch over to her practice. Upon calling to discuss with Doctor Churgin’s office, I spoke with Kathy who was beyond accommodating and put me in touch with Mrs. Churgin (the office administrator) who took the time to call and speak with me for almost 2 hours!! On the phone Mrs. Churgin answered all of my questions, provided me with advice, and even worked with Kathy to schedule an appointment with Dr. Churgin for the following day. When I went to the office I was blown away by the super friendly staff, the ease of filling out paperwork with Allan, and the cleanliness. I then met with Doctor Churgin who is the nicest, most thorough Doctor that I have EVER met. At no point did I feel any question was too silly to ask, or that I was being rushed. She took the time to take precise body measurements and fill me in on all possible options for surgery. The amount of confidence I have in her surgical skills cannot be put into words and I cannot wait to have my procedure done!

I have lived with a birthmark on my scalp for many years. It is a lesion made up of unfinished scalp the size of a half-dollar. It never bothered me until this past year as it had become quite painful. My dermatologist highly recommended I see Dr. Churgin. Upon meeting her, I found her to be very receptive, pleasant, friendly and highly educated. In addition, she is very thorough having sent me for a variety of tests to fully determine as to the cause of the discomfort I have been experiencing. Dr. Churgin and her staff are incredibly friendly and helpful especially with my insurance coverage to the point where they went out of their way to get written authorization and consent from my carrier. In all my years, I have never, ever encountered such a positive experience with any medical office such as Dr. Churgins. Cathy, Helen and Alan are extremely professional and pleasant and go above and beyond to accommodate their patients. Mrs. Churgin, the office’s administrator would phone after hours to keep me “in the loop” on numerous insurance issues to the point that I felt as if we had been friends forever. I am just incredibly blown away by how attentive Dr. Churgin and her staff are – it is so surreal for me. The care and kindness did not stop post-op. A warm and friendly Dr. Churgin greeted me after surgery to answer any questions I had – in addition her staff phoned me at home to check on my progress. My surgery was one week ago and have already had two post-op visits as Dr. Churgin insists on checking on the status of my healing. I have every intention of recommending Dr. Churgin and her staff to all my friends and family.

She is an amazing surgeon and I would absolutely recommend her, their is truly not one bad thing to say about my experience with her. She is kind and caring and after only 2 weeks post op I feel and look great! She worked hard to get my reduction combined with another breast surgeon in order to remove a fibroadenoma at the same time. She recommended this because she really wanted to do what was best for my health. l am 100 percent happy with my results and owe all my happiness to Dr. Churgin.

I had a workplace accident in 2008 in which I injured my nose and needed surgery. Another plastic surgeon performed the first nasal surgery. I had difficulty breathing after that surgery and was not really pleased with my appearance. That surgeon ignored my complaints. Because I had several other injuries, I could not address the problems with my nose again for a few years. Finally I was able to take care of my nose and found Dr. Churgin on the web. Her reviews were phenomenal. Dr. Churgin operated on me and I am thrilled with the results. Immediatley after surgery I was able to breathe perfectly. My nose looks great! The tip is turned up and the nose is straight. Most importantly, I can breathe normally for the first time in many years. THANK YOU DR. CHURGIN FOR GIVING ME MY APPEARANCE AND BREATH BACK! This surgery has restored my self esteem. I forgot how to smile after my first nasal surgery and now I feel like smiling again. Also, Dr. Churgin’s staff was very supportive. They followed up with me after the surgery and did everything possible to help me. I live out of state and therefore scheduling was very complicated. Dr.Churgin’s staff bent over backwards to make sure that my preoperative and postoperative courses were smooth. I would recommend Dr. Churgin and her office staff to everyone!

There are not enough kind words to say about Dr. Churgin. From the initial appointment to follow-ups she is an incredible doctor. I had a bi-lateral breast reduction done about a month ago. I visited several doctors prior to visiting Dr. Churgin but I was still uneasy about the procedure. Dr. Churgin explained the entire process to me, gave me more options than any other doctor had previously, and worked with my insurance to get my procedure fully covered. The morning of my surgery Dr. Churgin was calm and reassuring. She explained to me everything that was going to happen, assured me that she was going to take her time, and let my parents stay with me up until the point I entered the OR. My surgery went well with no complications. A while after surgery my pain medication wore off and I had a period of time where I was waiting for my discomfort to subside. Dr. Churgin came back to the hospital after tending to other patients at her office just to make sure I was being taken care of and feeling okay. My recovery has been incredibly fast and I was able to start work less than two weeks post-op. I am so happy with my procedure and incredibly thankful for Dr. Churgin!!

This doctor is the best doctor I have seen or visited in years. Going to Dr. Churgin helped me tremendously. I will recommend her to everyone I know. A doctor who actually did my surgery refused to see me any longer because I did not have two hundred dollars and I was in severe pain. But I reached out to Dr. Churgin she saw me and I cried in her office because I could not believe how she took care of me. I went to her with two issues and because of the person she is she was able to get another doctor there to help me with my second issue.

Best Doctor and Staff Ever! I feel I should make a review for both Dr. Churgin and her amazing staff as they are deserving of such acknowledgement and praise.

Review for Dr. Churgin:
I can’t thank Dr. Churgin enough for making my first cosmetic surgery a wonderful and comfortable process. From Day 1, she has been so hospitable, caring and truly genuine. I knew from that moment on that I made the best decision in choosing her as my doctor. This surgery was a long-time coming, something I’ve desired for years but was never ready with so many uncertainties. I want to thank Dr. Churgin for being more than just a doctor throughout this entire process, but more like a good friend that I can open up to and be comfortably at ease with. I know I’ll be starting off the new year with a newfound confidence, and I thank her for that!! I’m very happy with the outcome of my breast augmentation and am recovering very nicely. She is an artist! Highly recommended.

Review for the Staff:
The wonderful staff (Kathy, Helen, Alan, Nadia, Mrs. Churgin) I can’t thank them enough for making my experience with my surgery a wonderful and seamless process. From Day 1, they have all been so hospitable, caring, professional and reliable. I am very grateful to have met and chatted with each of the amazing staff, who make everyone feel very engaged and special – like family. Also, I thank them for consistently providing follow-up phone calls well after my surgery to check on my progress and health. Love the constant communication!

She’s a great listener and very responsive to questions and concerns. She takes a lot of time with each patient. Her staff is fabulous. Everyone was so wonderful to work with. And the surgical staff was the best I can imagine. Best of all, I love the results. I will definitely go to her for all my future needs and send all my friends and family to her for their needs. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Churgin.

I was looking for a good experienced plastic surgeon to do my breast reduction. While looking online, I saw Dr. Churgin and other surgeons, but somehow, I decided to go to her. Most of my friends that had some reduction told me about their surgeons, but I didn’t like the results of their surgeries; there were too many scars. When I called Dr. Churgin’s office to ask about a consultation, the staff was so nice, I made the appointment right then and there. When I arrived at the office, I felt very comfortable. The office was clean and the staff was amazing. When I saw Dr. Churgin, I wasn’t expecting such a genius could be so petite, pretty, and sweet. She took a photo and explained everything to me so I could understand it. She told me what to expect and what she could do to make me happy, which I am. I gave my insurance information to one of the staff – with whom I fell in love, by the way. She told me not to worry and that they would take care of everything. When I didn’t hear from the staff for about 2 weeks, they called to let me know that they are still working with the insurance company. What I really appreciate is they never left me hanging and always kept me in the loop. They got insurance company approval with no problems. They were very direct with me in explaining what insurance would and would not pay I knew that I would be responsible for a deductible. As for the outcome – my breast reduction was a TOTAL success, I kid you not. My breasts are so perfectly done that my friends tell me I had implants instead of a reduction. As for post-surgery recovery, I was up and about in 4-5 days. I had just a little soreness, but no real pain to speak of. I am one of the happiest persons on earth with my breast reduction and lift, I very highly recommend Dr. Churgin to anyone who is considering a breast reduction, lift, implants or any other cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. I gave Dr. Churgin 5 stars in all 8 categories and she earned every single one of those stars.

Dr. Churgin and her staff are knowledgeable and patient, they genuinely care about their patients and take the time to explain when it comes to any concerns or questions that you may have. They are prompt in following up and make you feel like family. Dr. Churgin is truly a compassionate doctor and makes you feel comfortable and trusting, not like a “customer” but like an actual patient, with needs and concerns. I would recommend her without even thinking twice. I am confident that I am going to be pleased with my results. I am looking forward to writing more wonderful things about her once I have had my procedure.

Doctor Churgin was just voted one of the “10 best plastic surgeons” in New York, in my opinion Doctor Churgin is number ONE!!! The Center for Specialty Care was the best place to get the surgery done, from the moment you enter to the moment you leave, you are treated with great respect, dignity, and care.

In 2011, I noticed a mole on my forehead. The mole became a source of irritation and in 2012, I decided that it had to be removed. For this, I went to Dr. Churgin because her partner, who is an orthopedist, provided wonderful treatment for my husband over the years. I am very glad I came to see Dr. churgin. Dr. Churgin took the time to reassure me that there should be no problem, but that she would have it biopsied, just to make sure. The removal of the mole was totally painless and the site healed so that no one would have reason to think it was a surgical site. Also, the staff was very accommodating and professional. I would recommend Dr. Churgin to anyone who needs plastic surgery and will definitely return should I develop a condition which requires treatment by a plastic surgeon.

Dr. Samara Churgin is one in ten million. It is not every day you find a doctor like her. Dr. Churgin is the most understanding , devoted ,compassionate doctor that I have ever had treat me. My insurance is Blue Cross Blue Shield. It was impossible to get an appointment with any other doctor. I was told that I had to wait until Mid March. I then called Dr. Churgin’s office. I was so impressed with her receptionist who asked me all about myself. A few moments later I received a telephone call from her office giving me an appointment for the next day. Upon my arrival I was offered a beverage and a snack while I waited for Dr. Churgin.
Dr. Churgin treated me as though I was one of her private patients who would be paying a private fee for service. However how as I stated I am an insurance patient. Dr. Churgin even brought in her partner who does not participate in my insurance. He treated me for my back and leg after Dr, Churgin treated me for skin issues. I am so grateful that I have the peace of mind knowing that Dr.Churgin and her partner Dr. Arvan really care about me and are trying to help me with my myriad of medical issues. They did refer me out to other professionals who they know will be of assistance to me. I wll be returning to Dr. Churgin as soon as all my test results are back. Dr, Churgin gave me her business card and I told me that her private work mobile telephone number is on it. I would like to know have you ever met a doctor like Dr. Churgin??? I never did !!! I highly recommend Dr. Churgin , her collegue Dr. Arvan and her entire office staff.

After conducting extensive research online looking for a top surgeon who specializes in Rhinoplasty I time and time again was introduced to Dr. Churgin. My first phone call into the office was extremely positive and set the tone for the type of interaction I received throughout my procedure and presently during my follow-ups. During that initial phone call all my questions were answered and I was given lots of information specific to my situation. After scheduling an in person visit I walked into a very professional and state of the art facility. The office environment was very friendly and inviting. Dr. Churgin was very helpful in informing me about what could be done to my nose and very quickly understood my vision. It was also great that Dr. Churgin gives out her personal number in which she can be contacted anytime. To prep for surgery I was given medicine to help with post surgery. The surgery was an absolute success and now 2 weeks later the swelling has subsided substantially. The great thing about Dr. Churgin and her wonderful staff is that even though it’s not necessary to come in frequently post surgery she does not charge patients to come in for follow-ups. Her phone is always by her side and I have called a few times with questions and she answered them very quickly. There is no barrier between Doctor and Patient and I think that is a great relationship to have. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Churgin for surgery, specifically Rhinoplasty. She did an amazing job and I could not ask for more. In all honestly I felt like I was dealing with close friends rather than doctors and staff.

Dr. Churgin is by far the most talented doctor who has ever treated me. When I made my appointment, I knew that Dr. Churgin was a highly respected board certified plastic surgeon and general surgeon. I was so impressed with Dr. Churgin and her friendly staff on my first visit.

I had a myriad of problems with other plastic surgeons who suggested to me injections that were inappropriate for my treatment. Dr. Churgin, within literally a couple of minutes, was able to point out that my prior injections were ineffective. The products that the other doctors were using were inappropriate and not effective for my cosmetic needs. Dr. Churgin discussed with me all the viable products on the market today that she thought would be more effective.

I am astonished at the results. I look fantastic for my age. I feel 10 years younger. I look as though I were on a well-rested vacation.

I highly recommend anyone who is interested in an amazing, incredible, knowledgeable plastic surgeon who has the wherewithal and wisdom far beyond her years to diagnose and treat cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive procedures.

I went to Dr. Churgin for breast reduction surgery. I have dealt with chronic neck and back pain for years and had tried everything else to alleviate it. I was at the point where I could go to work each day, and take a lot of Advil and Aleve, and then go home and rest. I had no life outside of work because of the pain and the toll it took on me. I am now three weeks out of surgery and my pain is 90% gone. I feel like I can finally have a life again.

In April, 2010, I was hit by a car while I was working. I went to the local emergency room where the doctors determined that I broke my nose.Additionally, I had a great deal of pain because I also
had lacerations to my forehead. The doctors determined that I needed the attention of a plastic surgeon. Fortunately for me, Dr. Churgin was the plastic surgeon on call that day. She examined me and told me exactly how she would treat the problems and what I could expect. I was extremely impressed with the fact that Dr. Churgin did not keep me waiting. She showed up moments after the hospital called her to come in to see me. Dr. Churgin did the surgery and my results were even much better than promised. The surgery she did in restoring my nose was unbelievable. People who knew me before the accident told me i never looked better and the job was so natural looking, that if I hadn’t told them I had plastic surgery, the thought would never have occurred to them. This is exactly how I always envisioned my nose to look. I was so pleased with the care I received that I had Dr. Churgin do a chin implant on me to correct a problem from years back. Again, the results were spectacular. I now look better than I ever did and what ‘s just as important, I don’t look as though a plastic surgeon had ever touched me. Of course, the reason for seeing a particular doctor is for his or her expertise, but I must say that Dr. Churgin’s staff, like Dr. Churgin herself, is first-class all the way. They are accommodating, courteous, knowledgable, and professional. I recommend Dr. Churgin to anyone who wants to consult a caring, expert cosmetic surgeon. G-d bless you .

First and Foremost I want to say thank you for what EVERYONE in the office did for me. They treated me like family. They are professional and are on top of EVERYTHING! Anything I needed for my surgery (breast reduction) they made sure I had. My insurance was being a pain, but that did not stop the office from getting what I needed. They fought for my procedure, it was a necessity. I am 5′ and had DD’s. That was just not working for me. I had waited years for this, of other doctors saying “NO” ” it’s a waste of time” can you believe that! Mrs. Churgin and crew was able to have this procedure done within 4 months. I’m in the healing process as of now, but so far everything is going well. Dr. Churgin is very knowledgeable about her work, She knows what she is doing. Her hands are like magic. The nurses even ran to help my sister after she passed out from seeing the blood draining from my incisions! ( this was post surgery) They put her on an upright stretcher and gave her some apple juice. They are very kind and caring. They even called to make sure everything was ok, not once but like three times! The only time I had a doctors office call me after a visit was for a payment. I would recommend Dr. Churgin to ANYONE, She is amazing.Â

My liquid face lift has made me look and feel at least 10 years younger. I have shopped around for some time looking for a doctor to successfully recommend the right injections for my face. I have had botox,Perlane fillers,and juverderm injections, to name a few. I have spent a small fortune over some time on facial rejuvenation. Several of my friends switched to Dr. Churgin who is a Plastic Surgeon, from the doctors we were going to that were Dermatologists. The difference is remarkable. Dr. Churgin told me about products and procedures I have never heard of before my consultation with her. The Education that I received from her during my 1 hour consult was unbelievable. The most impressive moment was when Dr. Churgin looked me straight in the face and said “I would like for you to sleep on what we just disscussed and should you decide to go ahead with the treatment, I will apply my consult fee to Any care and treatment I do for you. To tell you the truth I was blown away with her integrity. Several days later I did have the combination of injections Dr. Churgin recommend. It has been a couple of months now and everyone thinks I had a face lift or a very long stress free vacation. I have never received as many wonderful compliments as to how great I look in the past ten years. Doctor Churgin has earned my trust and I certainly have the utmost respect for her and her highly professional staff, they were terrific to work with, they treated me like a very good friend.

Dr. Churgin is not only the most informative doctor but also the most incredible! I have been to her office for many injuries. I recently had a fracture in my right metacarpel 1 and with her extensive knowledge in multiple surgeries, she was able to diagnose it right away. She even went as far as referring me to a nearby doctor for blood work and other lab tests to make sure it was not just another broken bone. Her bedside manner is truly comforting and acts as more of a friend than a doctor.
Another injury I sustained occurred last year around the end of February. While on vacation I suffered from sebaceous cysts the size of grapes, which started in my right ear lobe and quickly spread to the left ear lobe as well. Upon my return from my vacation I went to the emergency room to get them drained. I was given a doctor out of my network and when she tried to continue to treat me the bills piled up, I was referred to Dr. Churgin by a friend and couldn’t have been more relieved. Not only was she an in network doctor but, she was a fantastic person. She took care of my cysts and changed my antibiotic to a much more effective one. She also scheduled me for many more office visits than I probably needed to make sure the scars were healing as they should. She is a fantastic plastic surgeon and it shows because if you saw my ears now, you would never even know there were once giant cysts inside it.
As a referral from me, my father required her services as well. He had cut this thumb and when he went to the ER the doctor available did a worse job stitching the wound than a blindfolded 4 year old. I told him to schedule an appointment with Dr. Churgin and he did. She removed his stitches and changed his antibiotic as well as going as far as again culturing the wound to make sure the antibiotic was appropriate.
The wait time (if you can even call it that) in the office is ridiculously fast. I think the longest time I waited before seeing the doctor was about 7 minutes. I’ve never had any issues there and the staff at the front desk are amazing as well. Everyone is delightful when you walk in and very anal about organization. If anyone is looking for an amazing doctor with a great bedside manner (which is hard to find these days) and a doctor who is multi-talented and trained in multiple surgeries, look no further! Dr. Churgin is your ticket to a great recovery!

I live in Manhattan, but while visiting a friend in Staten Island I broke my nose and was rushed to the local hospital there. A Staten Island plastic surgeon was brought in to stitch me up, and after visiting an NYU ENT the next morning the general consensus was that everything was fine and I should just let the healing take its course…

Luckily a week later, after doing a relatively extensive search online for reputable in-network Manhattan plastic surgeons, I had the good sense to contact Dr. Churgin for the stitch removal. Her credentials are truly superb, and I was blown away by the level of attentiveness, knowledge, insight and care that I’ve received ever since the first consultation. A very visible bump on the top of my bridge had become apparent once the swelling in my nose went down, but Dr. Churgin never once tried to sway me in a certain course of action. Rather, she laid out the facts for me on both sides, and ultimately I am very pleased with my decision to go through with the procedure.

Dr. Churgin always had my best interest at heart and quite frankly I could not disagree more with the below negative review, as I know that my insurance hardly pays her what other out-of-network patients’ would. She and her entire administrative team far exceeded my expectations in service and have treated me like family from start to finish.

Wonderful experience with Dr. Churgin. Fell and had quite a bit of damage to my face, primarily the nose. The hospital ER didn’t seem overly concerned about the damage. Dr. Churgin reviewed the records and confirmed that my nose was indeed broken. Had surgery approximately a week later after abrasions had mostly healed and my nose now looks exactly as it did before. Very professional and caring. Follow up care was delayed by Hurricane Sandy and she made sure she got to the LI office to see me as soon as she could. I would definitely recommend Dr. Churgin if anyone I knew was in need of a plastic surgeon.

I went to see Dr. Churgin for a second opinion after consulting with another well-known and highly respected plastic surgeon. That doctor was in and out of the examination room in minutes and, though he smiled and acted like he really cared, I still felt like a number. Dr. Churgin took the time to talk with me, evaluate the damage to my nose, and explain what the problems were and how she intended to correct them. I felt like she genuinely cared about helping me. My trust was not misplaced. When the bandages came off my nose was nice and straight and I could breathe through both nostrils once again. Now that the swelling has subsided I have my old nose back and I couldn’t be happier. The operation, though tricky, was a complete success and I was back to work in a week. I can’t recommend her enough and I hope she never gets jaded and loses sight of why she became a surgeon in the first place, to help people. The world is full of doctors that are in it for the $$$. It is unfortunate that there aren’t as many that genuinely care and want to help others the way Dr. Churgin does.

I first met Dr. Churgin when she was completing a fellowship at Eye & Ear. She performed a facial rejuvenation procedure on me with amazing results. She has an incredible aesthetic and is also very solicitous to the needs of her patients. Subsequently, I have been going to Dr. Churgin for botox and filler procedures. She does absolutely beautiful work and I don’t even feel any pain! She is always up-to-date on the latest trends and products and takes the time to answer my questions and concerns.I live in NYC where plastic surgeons are top of the line. I choose to go to Dr. Churgin exclusively due to the personalized care that I receive, as well as the amazing results that I get.Thank you, Dr. Churgin!

The Best!

Dr. Churgin is a gifted surgeon who actually cares about her patients. When my sister was operated on for delicate hand surgery she personally spoke to me at 10 PM when she finished the operation. This greatly put my mind at ease. I would recommend her skills and follow through highly.

Excellent surgeon with very good follow up care.
