Surgeon generates individualized operative reports from templates in a few seconds

Michael Albin, M.D. is a General Surgeon at the Hernia Center of Southern California, South Carolina.

He has been using PhraseExpander since 2017.


  • EMRs are not efficient nor specific for surgeons.
  • He couldn’t create templates for his reports and had to re-edit the old ones every single time.

How that was solved

  • PhraseExpander allowed him to create templates with individual customization.


  • He generates operative reports in five seconds and customizes them in any scenario.
  • Although he uses templates, the documents are all individualized.
  • He can spend more time giving good patient care.
