Very little waiting. Dr. Trainer was low-key, very professional, thorough, and communicated well. Unlike the urologist I visited previously, he did not recommend a surgical solution to the problem I am experiencing until/unless the problem gets worse.

If you are looking for a physician to tell you what to do and use her title as a physician for the reasons why, then she is your doc. If you want someone who is concerned about the patient first, then look elsewhere!
