About Dr. Margolis

Philosophy of care

I strive to provide you with the most modern treatments in a prompt and courteous way, and I am always available for questions. My preference in helping patients is to focus more on disease prevention and lifestyle changes than on medications.

Why I entered medicine

Though it sounds like a typical answer, I joined the medical profession to help others. And every day I work to understand the best way to make your life easier. The burden of aging and disease can ruin the daily enjoyment of life. I want all my patients to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Community involvement

I like to help at the local animal shelter when time permits.

Personal interests

Outside of work I enjoy gardening, cycling, reading and meditation. Also, I try always to remain in ketosis with a low carbohydrate approach to nutrition, fighting inflammation, dementia, diabetes and heart disease.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
