Dr. Twiss undid my mesh nightmare. I came from out-of-state to have a total mesh removal and he had to reconstruct my vaginal opening which the first doctor took upon himself to close up too much. Dr. Twiss was amazing and his mesh removal knowledge and skill are outstanding. He also did a fascia thigh harvest to repair prolapse. I would travel around the world to see Dr. Twiss. Thank you

Dr Twiss is wonderful and very attentive to my needs, he was absolutely the first Dr who addressed my bladder problems effectively, he also did surgery on me at the VA and I followed him to Banner where I continue to see him and I am thankful I found him and the Pelvic Floor Therapists in his office. Dr Twiss is a delightful doctor that has changed my life for the better. I highly recommend him to both women and men!

I went to see Dr Twiss after experiencing nothing but frustration and discouragement after seeing other urologists for my unrelenting interstitial cystitis. From that first appointment 3 years ago to the present I have received the best medical care, the kindest and most sympathetic treatment and the most attentive focus by Dr. Twiss and all of the staff working with him. I have not hesitated to recommended him to multiple friends. Five stars doesn’t come close to rating him. Ten ++ is better.

He prescribed Nitrofurantoin for me to take nightly to stave away UTIs. I saw him in Feb and didn't have a UTI until yesterday. At about 9:30 pm I took ONE and went to bed. About 12am I woke up and couldn't breath. I had hives, painful dry cough and my hands and feet were tingly and extremely itchy. I have taken 3 Benadryl since then and it's the day after at 4pm. I feel like I've been punched. Like a really bad flu hit me. Severe body aches and headache. The office told me ER. Aweful drug!!!!!

Dr. Twiss is the epitome of what a DR should be - he takes his time, asks questions for clarification, is never pushy nor dismissive and is willing to do the diagnostic work to search for answers. He cares about the patient in a way that you don't often see anymore. In addition, his surgical skills are second to none. I traveled across the country to undergo a very complex surgery with him and would do so again in a heartbeat.

Dr Twiss was my urologist at the VA until his teaching schedule cost us his services. I have seen only one other Dr in the last 50 years who is so careful and concerned about his/her patient comfort, safety and health. Of all the people I have dealt with I find Dr Twiss to be the one most worthy of praise and of trust. He doesn't just see patients, he invests time effort and compassion in them. If 10% of his students turn out to be 10% as good as he is the world will have a lot of good Drs.
