    Dr.Abigail Shatkin-Margolis made sure I was comfortable at all times thus asked for permission before examining me. She was very professional and seemed confident in making the right decision for my procedure.

    She is normally an excellent advisor on my health conditions. This telephone consultation was short and hurried. She misunderstood my report of getting up several times during the night and she prescribed medication for incontinence.

    It was the first time in quite a while tat I felt I mattered to a doctor. I felt like more than a paycheck.. I felt heard and was given appropriate educational information about my condition as well as things I could personally do to help get better. I was extremely pleased with how comfortable she made me feel during a very intimate examination.

    Wow you are the luckiest employer ever. Abigail Shatkin-Margolis is one of the very best doctors I have ever seen. I felt heard and seen and she exhibited a high degree of knowledge and concern. Her examination was geared to the difficulties of an older woman with "thin skin" and she talked me through the procedure with true kindness. I can't thank her enough and look forward to working with her to improve my condition.

    Dr. Shatkin-Margolis made me feel comfortable the minute I met her. She asked me to call her Abby which I really liked. She had read my record from my previous procedure & told me that the LVN would give me more Lidocaine prior to the procedure & she would give me more before she started. She made sure that I was as comfortable as possible & explained what she would be doing before she did it. She showed great concern for me & said she would be in touch in the next few days. I really liked her & would recommend her to anyone who asked me.
    Oct 13, 2022
    So present and engaging! Very good listener! Showed a great deal of concern for my well being. Dr Shatkin-Margolis made sure I was completely comfortable with her from beginning to end of our visit. I finally feel like I am going to get great results after a horrible 15 years of suffering and agonizing pain. I feel Dr Shatkin-Margolis and her colleagues are going to help me get my life back.
