Dr. Josephson is the best in in my opinion. He listens to all your concerns and takes as much time as needed so you have a full understanding of what your options are. He is compassionate . He is a top surgeon and his post surgery visits were quick and very efficient. I would highly recommend him if you are having prostate surgery.
