    I am 15 weeks pregnant and had a kidney stone removed by Dr. Issackson, the stent was put in wrong and he blamed the nurse, he finally came and checked on me when I was in the hospital and ripped the stent out and put a new one in without any anesthetic or warning. He then told me to schedule a recheck with my PCP not him, and I haven't seen him since. A week later I ended up in ER because I couldn't urinate due to swelling I now have a cath in me and am seeing a new urologist.

    It took three months to get into him for the biopsy and involved two cancellations on his part. It then took 3 more months to have the surgery. He did the surgery with the DaVinci and, I found out later, left about 30% of the Prostate (Gleason 4,3). When PSA didn't drop as expected, he said there must be a "little" tissue left and sent me for radiation. I am six years out and have been undergoing hormone therapy and now must have chemo. That "little" bit of tissue may well end up taking my life
