[What I liked best] The scheduling of the surgery in a timely manner. The post-op recovery was good and fast and a good explanation of the procedure. Loved online access for pre/post surgery instructions.

"Multiple locations offered enough options so that I could get seen sooner rather than later. They offer Saturday appointments which made it easier since I didn't have to take time off from work."

I had been experiencing challenges for 12+ months (problems with fibroids for 25+ years) and finally grabbed the courage (and the time) to see my GYN. I had had a few procedures done to try and alleviate problems with fibroids including having some removed but these only worked to alleviate my problems for about 5 years. My GYN referred me to Dr. Mackoul for possible hysterectomy. This was done by Dr. Mackoul using this advanced dual port laparoscopy. Wow the recovery time was fast. There was no pain post surgery (none, and I'm not kidding) or discomfort at all. I was felt a bit bloated for 5-7 days but I've felt bloated for the last 12+ months, nothing different there. After 10 days I must say I haven't felt this good in 20 years. This is a very skilled surgeon. There's no reason for anyone to experience those 6-8 week recovery times any longer from hysterectomy. This advanced laparoscopy surgical technique (mine was dual port) practiced by Dr. MacKoul will change the way these procedures are handled going forward. Thank you for making this experience quick and easy with fast recovery time for me. I feel great and it's all because of your skill and experience doing this procedure. Please continue your good work improving the health of women all around the metro DC area and beyond.

I wasn't too fat for laparoscopic! Loved online access for pre/post surgery instructions. I loved Dr. MacKoul's detailed drawings in explaining adenocarcenoma and his patience with my questions.

Dr. MacKoul is the BEST - hands down. Dealing with major medical issues (fibroids&endometriosis, then ovarian cancer) is stressful, but one thing I didnt have to worry about was the level of care I was receiving. Unlike some surgeons, Dr. MacKoul discussed with me what I wanted & how we could achieve that goal while maintaining my health. He was patient, answered my questions thoroughly & worked with me and my family - he was an answer to prayers!

Negative Comments

I did wait a little bit, but Dr. MacKoul sat down with me and discussed my issues. He didn't just shove me out the door to fit more patients in. That being said, the wait was worth it.

Actual surgery was top-notch and recovery time was better than expected. Minimal pain and almost no scarring. Fantastic!
