I have found that one member of his office staff was rude, but the rest are very nice and he is not "full of himself", he is a good doctor and, over 3 years, he has always done right by me.

If I could get past the rude office staff I could rate the doctor. I called my insurance and they contacted Dr. Hochberg's Office and verified over the phone that they would accept my insurance PHCS/Multiplan. I scheduled an appointment where I gave the person on the phone all of my insurance information. Everything seemed fine that they would accept my insurance. She set my appointment and when I arrived at the appointed time, the front office staff said they do not accept my insurance said just to see the doctor would be $288.00 and could be more if tests are run. Don't let them waste your time. They could have told my insurance company or they could have told me on the phone when I scheduled the appointment. There is no excuse for such incompetence. Unfortunately I took time off from work for no reason, wasted gas and time traveling. Shame on your office staff!

Apparently, the review above from Monticello, FL was spot on. Dr Hochberg is VERY full of himself. He had no interest, empathy, or idea how to treat my issue. Very arrogant and conceited. I do not recommend him.

I suffered from urinary retention following surgery. He and his staff were very attentive and resolved the problem in a professional and timely manner. I have recommended him to several friends. Great bedside manners.

I was referred to Tampa Urology by the Emergency Department at St. Joe's North and scheduled with Dr. Hochberg. I had a very large kidney stone (my first) and was apprehensive about having it removed. Dr. Hochberg put me at ease and was very matter of fact about options and outcomes. His staff were professional, friendly and understanding. After each surgery his surgical staff called me to check in. I would recommend Dr. H to my family and friends.

Excellent in every area from diagnostic to final treatment. Wonderful office staff as well as assistants. To say I was apprehensive as well as nervous about cancer of the prostate and treatment options was to put it mildly. I was given every option, time to discuss with my family as well as primary care and encouraged to seek a second opinion. After studying all my options we decided to have the prostate removed by DaVinci robotic assistance surgery. I recommend Dr Hochberg without reservation.
