Dr Dehner himself is okay, but beware that the practice he is in uses an outside company to fill out FMLA papers and the charge $30.00. And they will not send the forms until payment is received. My initial contact with Dr Dehner was through a hospital visit, and my initial impression of him was better there than with the two surgeries and follow-up office visit. The whole billing situation (Lab results cost out of network, FMLA, and payment upfront) just kind of tarnishes the experience.

My initial consult with Dr Dehner was excellent. He was detailed in his explanation of my prostate procedure. I had never been to a Dr that took that much time with me. I did come up with questions after my consult, which his nurse was willing to answer for me. The procedure went very well, relatively no pain afterwards. Highly recommend Dr Dehner and his staff.

Dr. Dehner has performed 20 surgeries on me. 1 being a PCNL. The PCNL he completed on me was the best one I had ever had. I had had the same procedure performed 3 times prior by another doctor in the same clinic. With Dehner, I had a quicker recovery time, passed less stones, and had less pain. There have been times I have had emergencies and he schedule me for a surgery the next day/bump me ahead I love his nurse too. She's nice and not rude. I would recommend him to anyone needing a urologist

Dr. Dehner has done 4 robotic kidney surgeries on me to remove multiple cyst. He has been so amazing and a true blessing in my life and I can never repay him. He is a wonderful sweet loving doctor who actually takes time out of his day to call me with any results, which any doctor I've had don't do. He has also done other surgeries on me and everything was a success! I would and have recommended other patients to him. Thank you for all you have done to make my life better.

Dr. Dehner removed a cancerous bladder tumor for me. What was supposed to be an outpatient surgery where I could return to work the next day turned into a 9 week recovery. The hole from the tumor removal would not heal, I was in tremendous pain and he could not figure out why. Finally went to Vanderbilt Urology and diagnosed with major bladder perforation. They suspect the chemo wash Dr. Dehner gave me prevented my bladder from healing. Dr. Dehner did not give me an option on the chemo wash.

Dr Dehner performed laser surgery on my prostate, made a terrible mistake, and seriously damaged my bladder. Even worse, he deliberately failed to advise me of his failure, leaving me totally incontinent for what is now more than a year and continuing. I?m now unergoing a complicated multi-step procedure at Vanderbilt Urology to install an artificial bladder sphincter. This device requires an actuator placed in the scrotum. This is a solution being undertaken by Vanderbilt Urology.
