What People Say About Dr. Edward King, MD

After 2.5 years I obtained Dr King's notes from my exams/consultations. Only one of his notes reflected what we actually discussed during the visit. The other 3 included topics we never discussed e.g biopsy and the associated infections/risks vs monitoring and the patient has decided to not get the biopsy. A biopsy in my case is not warranted and was never discussed. In addition, as Harvard and Mayo advocate "free PSA" blood tests and that was never given until I took one myself. His response was that it is not always accurate. Rather than acknowledging the significantly improved statistics from such a good free PSA level. His notes are wrong and might appear like a ploy for insurance and/or to take his patient down to the most extreme, costly procedures available. If you go to him, you must get access to his notes through their portal or request a copy so you can confirm the accuracy of his notes.

Never. If I had a choice of any other urologist under our insurance plan, I would change doctors. It is extremely difficult to navigate their phone system. If we leave a message, it may or may not be returned. We had to wait 5 days after they had results of urine culture to get us any medication, and then, only after multiple phone calls! Their system makes us feel like we are on an assembly like of patients and not an individual. We are made to feel they are too busy and too prosperous to care.

Dr. King and his staff are the best. My father used him years ago ( now passed away..nothing related to condition treated by Dr. King) . Shortly thereafter.. I needed some help and he was really nice and very calm and knowledgeable. He makes patient feel very comfortable. Now .. 6 years later I was referred to a urologist for a recurring problem. I am probably about halfway through what I need to do.. but I have great confidence in Dr. king. He and his staff are very warm and kind to patients.

After my previous Doctor of 5 years left the practice I was left with finding another Urologist. My fiancée recommended Dr King knowing him from a prior experience. Of course I was apprehensive having had four prior surgeries for bladder cancer. Upon meeting Dr King and having my first cyscoptopy I was very impressed with him and the procedure. Dr King took the time to explained my prior medical history and recommend an ongoing program to keep me cancer free. No guarantees, but much hope.
