Dr Blitz first diagnosed my bladder cancer 2012. Took a very aggressive approach with all appropriate test and surgery and referrals to Oncologists and radiologist services. Followed up for the past five years and I am cancer free in 2017 because of Dr Blitz. He is an aw-sum doctor, very smart, very professional and I would recommend him to anyone needing Urology care. I know of several friends, male and female, whose use his services and are also very satisfied.

A good Doctor is no use when the staff is not compassionate and does not care about their patients. I was diagnosed with a condition week ago and had some new, very painful, symptoms arise. I called the office to ask what to do. I've now called 6 times in the last 2 days, every time I get told "someone will call you". Yesterday at 4:30 I called and they actually told me "The nurse says she is trying to get her stuff together to go home, she'll call you tomorrow". Steer clear - No compassion!

In the three years I have been a patient of Dr Blitz I find him to be caring and knowledgeable. His diagnosis and recommendations for treatment lead to successful results. He takes the time to keep both the patient and family informed. His explanations are clear and concise. He also has an excellent and friendly staff.

Highly competent, caring, skillful, and effective. I had bladder cancer some 10 years ago and needed to do a check up to ensure I remained cancer free. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Blitz
