    Dr. Fairfax is an outstanding Urologist. I had previously seen a male urologist for an incontinence problem. He only prescribed meds. Effective treatment was delayed over six months. Dr. Fairfax conducted very thorough reviews and exams. Besides the normal pelvic exam, she referred me for Physical therapy as well as bladder testing. I was also given a comprehensive list of recommended vitamins, fiber, and softeners to use. I wish that I'd seen Dr. Fairfax first.

    Dr Fairfax is extremely knowledgeable and professional in her field. She is thorough and experienced in assessing symptoms. She is caring and confident. You know that you have the right professional working for you.

    Good luck trying to see Dr. Fairfax. It took me months to get an appointment only to have her bail while I am in the waiting room. With her bailing, do you think I could get another appointment right away. No way, I ended up having to wait months once again. I come into her office today, and guess what, after I am there I find out she bailed again. This is the person I am trying to see because I have a kidney stone that is too large to pass.

    I have a number of serious chronic health conditions. Over the years I have seen more doctors than almost any patient?. AND I just want to emphasize that Dr. Fairfax is fantastic! She is a great listener, perceptive, and extremely educated/intelligent. She does not miss anything. Dr. Fairfax is by far my favorite doctor, ever!
