I can't say enough about Dr. Kowal! He removed my cancerous prostate 3 1/2 years ago and has provided excellent support since. His staff is great!

Dr Kowal is an excellent surgeon. By his caution with administering a second done of an antibiotic while hospitalized, he saved my life when I experienced a severe reaction. I never had pain or nausea after kidney stone removal & after previous stone removal surgeries, I was very uncomfortable for days. (previous surgery at MGH). He is an attentive, skilled doctor and I highly recommend him as a urologist. Judy

Awful experience. Felt like I was more educated on my condition than he was. Very rude and treated me like he was in a rush. Walked in with the most wrinkled dress shirt I have ever seen on a professional.

Dr. Kowal has gone above and beyond in his care. He called me while Xmas shopping with his family to check on me and make some suggestions. He has been extremely thorough and always did his best to proceed in the most conservative manner before considering other approaches. He is bright, competent, and friendly. I sm happy to give him 5 stars!
