My experience with Dr. MacKoul was absolutely stellar. My surgery went very smoothly, and my recovery was incredibly fast. I was able to drive to the store and go shopping just seven days after my surgery! I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

Dr. MacKoul performed my hysterectomy. It was by far, the best surgery I ever had. The incisions were so small, I didn't even need any pain medications at all afterward! Nothing! And on day three post op, I even got on my treadmill for about 20 minutes! It was a really positive experience overall.

I was able to go for long walks as of the next day of surgery, and was able to fly back to Canada within one week's time. Dr. MacKoul is a highly skilled surgeon. He treated me and my husband with great respect and made sure we are well taken care of.

Dr. Mackoul was the only person willing to help me. I only had to travel 5 hours to see him. If I had to though, I would travel across the world. 2 tiny incisions that cannot be seen! Dr. Mackoul is the best of the best.
