Dr Yalowitz was incredible.. He promptly diagnosed my issue and treated and within 24 hours I was feeling great. His caring, compassionate attitude made me feel very comfortable. I can highly recommend him!!
Highland, IN |
My husband had a large kidney stone. He needed emergency surgery. Dr Yalowitz squeezed him in before his other surgeries for the day. He was professional, attentive, and answered all of our questions. My husband was back home recovering by 2 pm! It was a really good experience!

Dr Bruce Yalowitz is an amazing physician. He takes the time to diagnose and explain so it is very understandable. He performed surgery on me and walked me through the process... has an excellent bedside manor and actually answered the phone twice personally on a Sunday when I had a concern/question. That is just NOT done anymore. I highly recommend Dr. Bruce Yalowitz!!!

Bruce was great in getting me through my first (and hopefully only) kidney stone experience. He and his office did everything they could for me - very quickly - to diagnose and ultimately resolve my pain. Such appreciation for everything he did for me!

Having any type of surgery or medical test can at times be very unsettling and scary. Dr. Yalowitz helped to ease those fears . He answered all my questions , he explained what the problem was and what the solution would be. He was friendly and professional . He also has a great sense of humor, which helps tremendously to break the tension and to help make everyone feel "normal". His staff was always friendly and helpful. Scheduling appts was also very easy. I would recommend Dr. Yalowit

I am an out of state patient. We have 2 hospitals within an 8 mile radius of where live in NC and both of them combined would not come close to the level of care and hospitality I received during my emergency Kidney Stone Surgery. I would recommend Dr. Yalowitz to anyone. Kidney Stones are no Laughing matter and he and the whole staff at community Hospital made my stay very comfortable. Hen definitely knows how to care for people!
in Schererville, IN |
I recently had an emergency situation with a kidney stone and Dr Yalowitz got me in immediately and stayed late to take care of my problem. I'm extremely impressed with his willingness to go the extra mile. He truly cares about people. Thank you Dr Yalowitz !!
Highland, IN |
The most rude doctor I ever seen. He gave me 2 minutes to explain my problem, when it didn't add up to what he wanted I was told nothing was wrong. He refused to give any indication of what was wrong or what I should do about it. When I asked what do do about the discomfort he just left the room. After waiting there about 5 minutes thinking he or at least his nurse would give me information, I went to the receptionist who said the doctor was done with me no instructions.
in Hammond, IN |
Usually not a fan of doctors, but Dr Yalowitz knows his stuff.
He is basically the reason my mother is alive today. He came in 3 AM to perform an emergent procedure on my mother which saved my mother from going into full septic shock. He was very professional and very nice. I highly recommend him.
in Munster, IN |
The reason I would welcome Dr. Yalowitz to everyone is that he a caring , compassionate person who takes the time and effort to explain your individual situation and what can be done to improve it. In all of my cases , Dr. Bruce was straightforward , willing to listen to my concerns , and being straightforward in helping me to understand my situation and alleviate any anxieties I might have.
in Schererville, IN |
Dr. Yalowitz has been my urologist ever since I was diagnosed with bladder cancer nearly two years ago. His skill and competence are first-rate, and he is thoroughly knowledgeable regarding diagnosis and treatment. His timely procedures during my long hospitalization were life-saving. I'm most fortunate to have Dr. Yalowitz as part of my medical team.
in St John, IN |
Dr. Yalowitz was attentive, caring, empathic, and his follow up care was unmatched as well. I knew I was in good hands from the start. He even took the time to speak in detail to my loved one in the surgical waiting area explaining the procedure with diagrams on his own time after hours. I would highly recommend this physician!
Munster, IN |
He was cold, abrupt and seemed not to want to share his opinion, defeating the purpose of going to him
