I think Dr. Fromer is a very good doctor and would love to recommend her to others but unfortunately due to the staff working there I cannot do so. To make an appt or speak to a nurse is do frustrating, you are on hold forever and can be disconnected multiple times. The doctor tells you one thing and the nurse says something else. I feel like I am always having to defend myself to the nurse. It's quite upsetting. They really need serious changes on how things are managed there.

Dr. Debra is an excellent Urologist. She is friendly, outgoing, and very informative. She takes the time to answer all your questions, advises you of your choices, and never rushes at all. You feel like she really cares about your well-being. I would highly recommend her. Her staff of nurses are polite, friendly, and always return your calls. I feel very lucky that she was recommended to me, and that she performed my surgery very successfully.

After experiencing severe pelvic pain, I called to set up an appointment with a female urologist. However, the interaction I had with the scheduling representative was so unpleasant and unhelpful that I made an appointment with another doctor. First, I was on hold for 20 minutes at 8 AM on a Tuesday morning while waiting to set up an appointment. No doctor was available to see me for two days. I explained that I had serious pain and was told to go to the ER. Yeah.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fromer's for well over a decade now and she is an outstanding physician. However, I recently encountered a health issue that req. me to call & make an emergency appt that placed me on a endless hold time when you hit opt#2 to speak with an RN. The back and forth phone calls today took a total of 65 minutes which is simply outrageous, but how I was treated on the phone by her staff and how the phone mysteriously disconnected is unprofessional. Lack of compassion...

What I thought was a great experience turned out was maybe not so great...doctor recommended I provide a urine sample, and would hear back once results were in. After 2 weeks of not hearing I contacted the office only to be told there was no record of any sample being sent out! Really! What happened to the sample I gave. No apology from the nurse who returned my call. All she said was that they would send me another perscription in the mail and I could go to a lab by me. totally annoyed!

Waited a long time to see her for a few minutes. Pushed some extra tests on me and told me my insurance covers them (but not!) One test was preformed by her which the camera wasn't working. The other one was done elsewhere but she/her office never contacted me for results. When I called the office, no one answers. I left messages and no one called back. I also wanted them to fax my test results to my general practitioner but they never fax them! I will never use this office again!

Dr. Fromer was extraordinarily professional and assessed my problem immediately. She took the time to explain the course of action, and I loved Dr. Fromer's confidence regarding her plan. I was at ease from the moment Dr. Fromer walked into the room.

This doctor is very rude. She is impatient and gave me the feeling that all I did was bothering her.
