Dr. Mamikoglu will have a clinic in Hornell and Wellsville, and do surgical procedures at both hospitals.
“I am excited to join a hospital network with strong leadership that works together for the health and well- being of the community,” said Dr. Mamikoglu. “It is a great feeling to be able to contribute my skills to work with hospitals that truly make patient care a priority.

“My philosophy of care is simple. First and foremost, I believe great care involves truly listening to the patient without interrupting, so that a correct diagnosis is made initially,” he said. “Kindness and a sense of humor help patients feel more comfortable. I believe in having compassion for the patients and staying up to date on advancements in the medical field by attending seminars, reading and conferring with colleagues on various medical topics of interest and relevance to my medical practice. My goal is to constantly improve my skills as a physician in order to better serve my patients.”
