Patient Reviews (2)
in Blacksburg, VA |
Dr. Hicks is knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. He is a skilled surgeon who uses the latest techniques such as ureteroscopic laser fragmentation and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy. His staff is very professional. My experience with him is limited to kidney stone issues, which is only a small part of the practice of urology, but my experience with him has been strongly positive. His surgery day is Thursday.
I changed urologist for a second option at first I thought he was awesome but after my procedure and the way he talked to me when I was having sever pain I will never go back I was admitted into another hospital by a different urologist that was very concerned and helped me I will never recommended this doctor.
