Review of Dr. Duchene


I can't say enough good things about Dr. Duchene. He performed a nephrectomy on my 84-year-old mom to remove the source of her recurrent UTIs that were becoming antibiotic-resistant. The kidney had a very large abscess on it that was harboring bacteria. He is very sharp. He requested several tests and imaging scans and did his homework to make sure he knew everything about her condition and her health complications before agreeing to do anything. He was thoroughly prepared. He is kind, compassionate, and friendly. He has always made us feel like he had plenty of time to explain the procedure and the risks and to answer all of our questions. I'm glad he didn't treat us like we were in a drive-thru. He took the time to do everything right. The surgery went smoothly, and my mom is doing great now. Thank you, Dr. Duchene.

Review of Dr. Wyre

- in Warrensburg, MS |

In 2014 my husband presented with High Grade-LCNEC of the Bladder, less than 1% of all Bladder Cancers with horrible odds for survival. This fine young Doctor saved his life. We are heading towards 5 years NED> Dr. Wyre level of excellence reflects not only in his medical practice but his bedside manner and professionalism. I highly recommend.

Review of Dr. Padmanabhan

- in Chillicothe, MO |

I can't thank Dr. P enough for what she has done for me she is an excellent doctor and knows her field very well! She changed my life completely for the better helping me be a healthier person! She repaired a hole in my bladder that another doctor had done! It was a long year and a half of living with the hole and pretty much bringing my life to a halt due to being unable to do everyday things without pain and leaking! Dr.P was able to fix my fistula and give me my life back! She is the best!!!

Review of Dr. Griebling

- in Plainville, KS |

Dr Griebling had a very nice and caring attitude. He explained everything to me in great detail. He always shook my hand and my daughter's too. He was very good at giving me all my possible treatment options and gave me enough information to be able to select the right one that was RIGHT for me and life. I am so glad I chose him to be my doctor. He was a definite "10" !!

My mom has been going to him for the last 6 or so years. He has done several surgeries on her due to kidney stones. He even saved her life. He is a wonderful Dr.

Review of Dr. Padmanabhan

-Raymore |

I never take the time to do reviews but for the first time in years I am pain free and it's due to the surgery done by Dr. Padmanabhan. I had a similar procedure done 6 years ago but it was ineffective. I'm now 6 months post surgery and couldn't be happier! Thank You!

Review of Dr. Padmanabhan

-Kansas City, Kansas |

After my new patient experience I refused to return. Part of it was beyond her control - she didn’t know I was in my room for almost an hour - but when she did finally realize I was there she only spent about 5 minutes with me outlining basic medical advice I had already received by my primary care doctor. That was the extent of my appointment and I was told to return in 6 months. Bottom line she didn’t seem too interested in providing personalized care so I found another urologist who was.

Review of Dr. Thrasher


I went to Dr Thrasher for a second opinion and was amazed at the difference and through approach. Outstanding staff and Dr. Thrasher listened carefully, explained alternative and I was able to explore a wait and monitor position going on 3 years now with lower Gleason levels. He performed a biopsy that was twice as easy as my previous experience at another hospital. Cannot recommend Dr. Thrasher enough and believe he is at the top of his field.
