Dr. Banks does a thorough analysis to resolve the health issue. I am thankful for his attention to detail and friendly demeanor.
in Peachtree Corners, Ga |
Dt Banks has been my urologist for a number of years. He noticed, several years ago, an elevation in my PSA and we discovered I had prostate cancer. Dr Banks was very open with my options and helped guide me through the decision I had to make about the correct action for me. Through his care and guidance I am now cancer free. He's not only a great Dr but a faithful and resourceful coach when you face health issues. I couldn't be happier with the care I have received from Dr Banks.
in Woodstock, GA |
Outstanding, thorough, great bedside manner! He saved my life! Dr. Banks wants to be sure that his patients and their families understand their problem, condition, procedures, medications, and treatments. Dr. Banks will answer any questions the patient may have. The centralized scheduling does need to be improved. Dr. Banks is a fantastic doctor who truly cares about his patients!

My doctor had recommended Dr. Banks to me. While it took a bit of time to get an appointment, I now know why---and DEFINITELY worth the wait! Dr. Banks' nurse was incredible---very friendly and energetic. Dr. Banks has a great bedside manner---really nice doctor---listens to you describing your issue and gladly answers your questions. While many doctors rush you through your visit, he was very accommodating and made you feel like his only patient. You will *not* be disappointed to visit.

I was very Nervous when I went to see Dr Banks. His staff was very personable; I was escorted to an exam room and nervously waited to see Dr. Banks. When he entered, he reminded me of a southern gentleman and immediately put me at ease. I would recommend Dr. Banks to anyone needing a urology consultation or treatment. I had a very good experience and will continue to see Dr Banks as my Urologist.

Dr. Banks is a knowledgeable, kind, compassionate physician. He takes time to explain the condition any procedure necessary or just explain options available. I have the utmost faith in his expertise and would certainly recommend to family or friends. Georgia Urology has an excellent support staff that adds to the experience of visiting their offices.

I have been seeing Dr. Banks for over 20 years and obviously have been very satisfied with his skills as a Doctor as well as how he converses with patients. He evaluates each person as an individual based on their history and test results and then takes appropriate action. He does not rush to recommend serious procedures, but does re-evaluate conditions on a timely basis. Dr. Banks is very ease to talk to and explains things in an easy to understand manner.

If there was a stereotype picture of a modern day country Dr., it would have Dr. Banks in it. He is kind, listens to your hurts and tries to help. His plain talk explanations are geared to calm your fears and ease your mind. I would recommend him to anyone having a urinary problem.

I've been seeing Dr. Banks for several years now since my prostate cancer issues and see him every 6 months for check-ups. He is very professional and is willing to spend time answering any questions I may have regarding medications. He is clear, concise and to the point when speaking. Instead of dreading a doctor visit, I look forward to it knowing I'm staying ahead of any potential health problems.

I chose DR. Banks because my General Practitioner highly recommended him. I stay with Dr. Banks, whom I must visit semi-annually for various tests, because he is professional, pleasant, proficient, and has kept me healthy and comfortable for several years. Dr. Banks never hurries my visits, and responds to any questions I may have.

in Roswell, GA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Banks for almost four years (April 2012). I had never been seriously ill and knew little of what to expect when I was diagnosed with a serious illness. From my first visit through diagnosis, treatment and more than three years of post-treatment follow-up exams and testing, Dr, Banks and his staff have invariably provided friendly, professional care at every interaction. I recommend Dr. Banks without reservation.
in Cumming, GA |
He listened with attention then asked a few questions and listened again before suggesting starting a simple treatment. Hopefully that will help greatly but he said there was a 50/50 chance the first treatment would help.
in Cumming, GA |
Originally Dr. Harry Rutland was my doctor but got transferred to Dr. Bank when I took Radiation treatment when my prostate cancer changed to a higher grade. An Implant followed and my doctor was going to be away so was transferred to Dr Banks and have seen him since 9/13. He did the successful implant and has done all of my follow ups. He is a good doctor who has been able to take care of my needs. He is friendly, good bedside manner and listens to what you have to say; am confident in him,
in Georgia |
Dr Banks listens to me. He recommended a prescription that reduced my getting up at night to urinate from 4 times to 2 times. I appreciate the care I get from him
