I was referred to Dr. Pooli for prostate cancer. My prostate biopsy showed unfavorable prostate cancer but luckily it was confined to my prostate only. My urologist sent me to Dr. Pooli to help me with my cancer. I had a robotic prostatectomy in June 2020 and recovered very well. Dr. Pooli saw me in the clinic multiple times after the surgery and took care of me by proving education about my cancer. Although I had bac cancer, all the margins were negative and my nerves were preserved during the surgery. I have great urine control now and do not have to wear diapers or pads. I am a cancer survivor for two years now and my PSA was undetectable recently. I am forever grateful to Dr. Pooli and can not recommend him enough.

I was suspected to have prostate cancer based on your prostate enzyme. Dr. Pooli did a biopsy on my prostate and found cancer. He operated on my with a robot and took out my prostate. He preserved my nerves around the prostate in order to have better continence and erections. I just saw Dr. Pooli in the office and my PSA was undetectable. I am now two years out of robotic prostatectomy and have excellent urine control. Not sure if I should mention but have good erections as well

I had a mass in the back of my kidney. I was referred to Dr. Pooli to get expert help. He directed me to get biopsy and genetic test of that mass. Unfortunately, the biopsy showed kidney cancer and genetic test also showed high grade cancer. Dr. Pooli offered me robotic surgery through my back. Dr. Pooli used a robot and a technique that is called retroperitoneal surgery and removed my tumor and saved the rest of my kidney. My recovery was perfect and I did not have much pain. I am so happy that now I am a cancer survivor since February 2022 and recent CT showed that the cancer is completely gone and my kidney works excellent. I greatly recommend Dr. Pooli for his professionalism and for the great surgeon he is

I went in for a follow up about surgery on a kidney tumor. He had ordered a full body CAT scan and it revealed my tumor had advanced to a few centimeters from my heart and he wrote a strong recommendation for me to get my surgery by the specialists at UCLA

I had a very large prostate, as large as an apple. They measured it 140 grams. Nothing worked for my urination problems. Dr. Pooli took me to the operating room and removed my prostate robotically. OMG, my urine stream is so good now. My urine stream is strong and can hold my urine so easy. I sleep through the night like a baby. It was the best decision to have prostate surgery by Dr. Pooli

I have diabetes and had a large prostate. I had to go to the restroom multiple times a day and could not empty my bladder. Doctor Pooli did a laser surgery on my prostate which solved my problems. I did an excellent job and am very content with the result of the surgery. I am glad I found Dr. Pooli. The most recent test in the office showed very high flow rate and I empty my bladder completely. The office staff were very friendly and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Pooli

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Pooli. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and had a bad reaction of BCG treatment. I was referred to Dr. Pooli to take care of my bladder cancer. I have a tumor resection from my bladder and also had a TURP/Green light laser prostate surgery. I feel great now and my urine stream has improved so much that I can put a fire out. There is not bladder pressure anymore and my urgency is gone. The bladder tumor is also gone and I will start to receive BCG treatment. I have happy that my bladder cancer has not progressed

In November 2021 my wife was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Her primary doctor recommended Dr. Pooli. We had no idea what kidney cancer was. Dr. Pooli immediately told us that a nephrectomy was necessary, again, we had no idea what a nephrectomy was. Dr. Pooli explained in detail and provided us with all the information we needed. Dr. Pooli performed a nephrectomy of the right kidney in May 13, 2022. However, in the process of removing the cancerous kidney, Dr. Pooli discovered that due to a surgery done many years ago the tip of the small intestine was attached to the wall to the stomach. Dr. Pooli immediately summoned another specialist in the hospital and they cut a piece of the intestine and repaired the damaged part. Dr. Pooli was very attentive to my wife, he visited her at the hospital several times while there. When at home he called twice to check on her, we called him in the middle of the night and he responded within minutes. In July 23 Dr. Pooli declared my wife cancer free

I had prostate problem and a very weak urine stream. I had used prostate supplements and some medications that did not help me much. Dr. Pooli did some tests on me and measured my prostate size and shape. After long conversation explaining the options (medicine, different surgeries), Dr. Pooli told me that I may benefit from Urolift surgery. Dr. Pooli did Urolift on me and since the procedure, my stream is much better. I feel that I empty my bladder completely. I feel like my 30s again with a great force of urine. Thank you Dr. Pooli

I have severe problems with my urination. My prostate was very large and I have to go to the bathroom several times during the day and night. Afteer rigorous evaluation by ultrasound and cystoscoy, Dr. Pooli recommended Rezum procedure. I had this surgery (Rezum) in January 2020 and now after two years, my quality of life has improved so much. I had some discomfort initially and was told that I may have some burning because of the steam in my prostate. However after a short perior I started noticing better stream. I am very happy with the result and my prostate size is almost half the previous size now. Thank yo Dr. Pooli

Doctors can judge doctors better than patients do, when they seek help form a colleague. Bein a specialist doctor but presented as a patient I chose Dr. Pooli after intense review search. He simply goes without hesitation or delays to solve your ordeal using the right approach to target your complaint whether medical or through surgical approach. Highly recommended along with his friendly medical coworkers & surgical staff. Dr. Mazin Alsarraf

I have visited Dr.Pooli and staff Itzel,Steph,and Jenny. I have had 2 Urolifts and he and his staff have made a very uncomfortable procedure tolerable and pain free. I am grateful for his patience and speaking to me step by step and making sure I'm comfortable. That really helps! I opted to use laughing gas this time and I didn't feel a thing we spoke throughout the procedure keeping me aprised step by step! I couldn't be happier with Dr.Pooli and his staff for how things turned out! Thanks Again Doc and Staff!

I am very thankful to Dr. Pooli for helping me with my kidney problems. I was having a lot of flank pain and was told that my kidney will not work. Dr. Pooli did a whole work-up and after a nuclear scan, told me that my kidney has at least 28% function and is worth saving. He operated on me and took out the narrow part of my ureter. My kidney has good function thanks to Dr. Pooli and my flank pain has resolved. I had many kidney infections and septicemia and after Dr. Pooli operated on me, my problems have resolved. I keep him in my prayers always.
