The office is the worst I have ever seen. It seems they have all day lunch hour. You can't leave a message for them to call back or they even call you back. I would not recommend anyone to this office. The doctor is ok.
Dr Dow performed robotic prostate surgery on me in May 2011. He has been regularly following me since then to ensures that the cancerous cells have not returned. He is smart, knowledgeable in his field and personable.
Love Dr. Vemana. Very pleasant and good bedside manners. Excellent in what he does. Very caring. I'm going to truly miss him. Wanted him to do my surgery because I trust him.
Good personal doctor.Problem is staff nobody answers phone really annoying.
Dr. Dow is either careless or a poor doctor. He prescribed testosterone injections and said it shouldn't affect fertility. If he can make this error, what else can he miss?
Outstanding doctor! Patient, explains thoroughly, very bright. I am totally satisfied. I had large kidney stone requiring lithotrypsy.
Very satisfied with Dr. Dow; however, it is difficult to communicate via the phone system. One must leave a message which are supposedly returned at the end of the day. This doesn't always happen. i am waiting for the third day for lab results. My messages via the electronic Patient Portal haven't been answered in over a year and half, and the last lab results posted were from three years ago. So, in summary the medical care is excellent. The administrative processes need attention.
I WILL NOT RECOMMEND Dr. Barnes to anyone. MY husband was seeing him for two years. He did nothing for two years even though his PSA was high, now he has prostate cancer. Please do not go to him.
If only he would have done a CBC blood test to see I had infection. If he had he would have ran an atibiotic through my Iv prior to stent placement. I went in for a stent placement and came out with sepsis. It almost killed me. He was a new Dr I didn't know that. This doctor was very professional and kind. Till 2 yrs later I had another and he took it out wanted to discharge me quickly. I went to Galveston with a kidney bleed. I bleed easy but he was wrong. He was a young doc then. sorry
Dr. Nguyen is a horrible Doctor, no bedside manners at all. I had bad blood counts that could of caused me to develop blood clots, he didn't care to contact myself or family to inform. At appointment he would rather look at my wife than me the patient. Billed my insurance company over 11k for blood work. Never again will I give my time and money away to such a pathetic Doctor.
i have been sending Dr. Barnes patients he is very friendly professional and knowledgeable; he saved my life many years ago something neither me nor my family will ever forget. another dr did surgery on my kidney and left out of the country after the surgery. I started bleeding in the kidney and many doctors refused to help me because I wasn't there patient. until Dr Barnes was checking on his patient in same room as I was. I asked him to help me and sure enough he really saved my life.
The only reason I am not sure on recommending Dr Dow is due to the long wait for your appt, even if you are there for a test with a full bladder! From reading others apparently staying close to a schedule is not possible in either office. May have to consider a change.
Dr. Dow is an excellent and understanding provider. Being that he works at different offices, his staff is what you should consider. Calling the Astoria office is a trying experience; Rachel and her staff do not treat your concerns as they would their own family. As a war veteran, I would think that they could show some appreciation. The Blossom office is a much better experience. Dawn and her staff are so much more caring and understanding than the Astoria office. Go to Blossom Street.
I was a new patient going to Dr. Hoggatt for pain from a Vasectomy. He did not listen to what I was saying and disregarded what I was telling him. I would not recommend him.
Made us feel at ease. Explained things thoroughly.
DR. Dow seems to be a good DR. Appointments run 2 - 3 hours behind, Seems like they schedule all morning appointments at 9:00 a.m and it may be 11:00 before the Dr see's you, have been left in waiting room more than once for over an hour
I had scheduling problems with my Urologist. I just selected him and turn out a good decision.
I never had to wait more then ten minutes in last 4 times. Him and his staff seems to be very busy but very proffessional and fuuly value all your concerns. I am very happy here.
I had no problems with Dr. Nguyen. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and he was very informative of my options, referred me to the best facility for my treatment.
I have had many years(!) of bladder issues (numerous UTIs, overactive bladder, etc.). Recently, my urologist retired so I needed to find another doctor who could work with me and my bladder issues. Very personable and takes the time to listen to your specific issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoggatt for any urological issue you might be having!
He was great. Very professional
