I am so thankful that I sought a second opinion from Dr. MacKoul when my OBGYN recommended a hysterectomy. I did indeed need the procedure but not for the reasons I was originally told. Dr. MacKoul was so patient with my questions and thorough with his exam and preparation prior to surgery. I was told by my OBGYN 3 weeks of recovery time and 4 incisions. Once starting my surgery it was discovered that my amount of scar tissue was significantly more than expected. The majority of surgeons would have had to switch to a full abdominal hysterectomy. Despite that fact that the surgery took longer than expected Dr. MacKoul skill and expertise allowed him to keep it a laparoscopic procedure and I was almost fully back to normal in less than a week. Even within that week my discomfort was very minimal. My friends and family that have had this procedure were amazed at how easily I recovered. I suffered for years with pain and extremely heavy bleeding. I tried birth control, I was told to consider ablation - neither of which would have helped with my Adenomyosis. Dr. MacKoul correctly diagnosed and treated me and has given me my quality of life back. If you are considering a hysterectomy I highly recommend you at least consider meeting with Dr. MacKoul and his team to get a second opinion and evaluate your options. I am so very glad that I did.

Thank you, Dr. MacKoul,

It is overwhelming as to how super I feel. I see life through a different perspective. I look forward to living each day to the fullest. I enjoy being happy and being the warm and smiling person to everyone I come across. Those closest to me, say i am a different person.

I encourage all ladies to really listen to your bodies, and be open and honest with your doctors. Trust yourselves to speak up.

Dr. MacKoul and his entire staff, and everyone at the surgery clinic were exceptional. Their strong work ethics and professional bedside manner provided a most peaceful and calm experience I have ever experienced in my life.

I am truly greatful. I have my health back because of Dr. MacKoul.

Thank you again, Dr. MacKoul and staff.
