    Dr Margolis is the best doctor I've ever been to. He is caring, professional, and answers every question I ask during the visit. He is very thorough in his examination and I feel that I am always in excellent hands. Furthermore, he is an outstanding surgeon. I'm so very lucky to have him as my doctor.
