Cold. Uncaring. Botched diagnosis. Delayed treatment. About as bad as it gets in terms of a medical experience. Avoid this person!
Terrible experience with mistake after mistake. Have discussed this doc with others and they experienced the same. Just a ridiculously bad "physician." Stay away!
5 years ago after a chest xray for possible pneumonia, a growth was noticed on my right kidney. My primary Dr sent me to Dr Flewelling. He made me feel comfortable and knowledgeable about surgery to remove the kidney. Did the surgery with the Da Vinci robot and as he said, "Bagged it sealed the bag and got it gone!" . He is very caring and yet professional, tells it like it is in terms you can understand and never talks down to you..and has great sense of humor! I give him 10 stars out of 5.
Dr Starr and his assistant, Jess, were great. Professional and caring. Empathetic to my anxiety about potential findings. Plenty of time for questions and discussion. Never felt rushed.
I have had a lot of frustration trying to resolve the treatment of 3 massive kidney stones. While Dr. Gillett is a nice man, he does not keep communication open. My 89 year old mother was admitted into MMC through the ER. He was the doctor on call. She has not seen him since being admitted with the exception of one lithotripsy treatment. All other appointments were with other nurses or doctors. It has been over 2 months. He hasn't even called to tell us what's next! He doesn't answer my calls.
In the 2 (urgent) conditions I saw Dr. Gillett, I found him to be exceptionally kind. He took the time to explain things and in both surgeries that he did everything went very smoothly with no complications. I trust Dr. Gillett explicitly and hope if I need a urologist in the future that he is available.
