Dr. Thur is an excellent urologist. He has great bedside manners. Always tells it like it is. Spends time with patient. Nobody likes going to a urologist, especially for cystoscopies, but if you have to, go to Dr. Thur.

Mark Neisser Feb 13 2020

Review for Dr. Thur

Dr. Kotler is great but some of the rest I feel are in it for the money! The only thing I hate is no one calls you back! You have to call tons of times for someone just to get your message!

Zoey Feb 13 2020

Review for Dr. Kotler

Explains your medical issues clearly and not condescending. Very diligent about your treatment/medications. You don’t leave your appointment with questions. If you do think of something later he will answer you back. I have found that my care under Dr. Bloom has been excellent.

Feb 12 2020

Review for Dr. Bloom

Dr. Nazarian took the time to listen to my medical history and made recommendations for my continued care. I am relieved to know that he will be taking over as my Orthopedic Surgeon going forward and have full faith in his ability to perform any required surgeries in the future.
