  • “With Dr. Steven Mutchnik's reputation I expected professionalism but he also brought compassion and focused attention on me and my family. His direct manner and clear explanations made a stressful situation much more bearable. Post surgery care was the same high quality. So, yes, thank you. Simple words to cover deep gratitude.” -Larry
