Excellent Thyroidectomy, almost no scar

Did a great job, didn't miss anything; entered using a wrinkle line and thus left almost no scar.

Dr Towbin is a kind, compassionate man who answered all my questions and provided in depth information regarding my condition and the surgical intervention needed. He is an excellent surgeon. All expectations were met and exceeded. He provided follow up after my surgery to ensure that all healed as expected and to offer further support if needed. He worked well with my medical team who all hold him in the highest regards, both as a surgeon and a person.

Front desk staff was okay.. not nice, not mean. The woman who takes you to the room... VERY RUDE. Has an "I'm better than you" attitude. Ask a simple question, not a stupid one... she snapped at me and walked off leaving me standing there; I asked the front desk if I was to follow her, they just shrugged their shoulders. So unprofessional!
