Absolutely Awful! This Dr. Sypherd is arrogant, non communicative and very unhelpful. After a cursory. "Why R U Here" from Sypherd, he just looked at a report, then ordered me to open my pants, after the usual cough, cough he then ordered again simply pointing to the table and telling me to "bend over" this is when it really went over the top. The digital exam was violent, I am a tall guy and Sypherd told me to bend my knees, however, I was not fast enough, so he used his knee by hitting me in the back of the knee to force me down, then pushed so hard, he slammed me against the table. I then turned around and he ended the exam with a snap of the glove and a tossed wipe. I was told no result. He then told me I needed s biopsy. Mumbled good day and left. My Wife was embarrassed for me. Her comment was "He just tried to emasculate you....what the hell was that about"? I am working with the patient advocate currently. Do not see this Doctor.

Dr Sypherd and his staff is the best. I would recommend them. He explained everything so you can understand the whole process.

My father has called the office MULTIPLE times to schedule a much needed surgery and CANNOT get a return call. This surgery is something that can’t be put off, yet no response.

Hi, my name is Michelle W. I recently had surgery at the Deaconess Health Cntr location, and I can honestly say that my experience at the Rockwood Urology Center was top notch. I'm talking about the entire staff! Including, but not limited to Dr sypherd himself (skilled, and great bed side manner), nurses, ma's, office, scheduling, & surgical staff. They went out of their way to accomodate my needs before surgery, and especially post opp issues. I strongly recommend Rockwood Urology. Thank you!
