Dr. Dennis A. Pessis, MD

Urology | Male | 69 years old

After many years, you find out what patients are really concerned about, what really bothers them, what is hard for them to talk about. And as you go through your years of practice, you find out how to adjust. Every patient is different. Every patient has a different anxiety. And therefore you discuss the issues with them as you see fit for them - each individual patient. Most gratifying is having a patient come back after an operation, and they're feeling well. Or going into a hospital room after you've done a procedure, and the patient and family are there - and they have a smile on their face, and things are going well.Read more
