I have seen him over the course of 8 years. At first I was not too impressed with him and have left the practice previously. I ended going back and feel we kind of have an understanding of one another. He has taken good care of me the past several years.

He should retire. He is incompetent at the stage of his life. He's had a monopoly on being the only urologist in the Rutland, Vermont area for decades. There must be some under the table agreement with Rutland Regional Medical Center so that no other urologists can practice here.

Had a surgical procedure done a week ago. Went back because it was swollen, hot, had pus draning, and i had a fever and it HURT. Pain isnt something you should have 7 days post op. All signs of infection. He said it looked amazing. No pus no fever no swellung...nothing. Didn't believe him so I went to my primary. My primary tested it... massive infection! Yep what a dumb doctor!

Treated very poorly. No communication from him after an emergency room visit and only received the follow up appointment and testing after multiple calls to his office. He probably should not be accepting new patients as he can't treat the ones he already has.

We paid $600 over the course of 4 visits for simple urine tests done in office. This was in addition to the many hundreds paid by the insurance company only.to leave with the exact same symptoms as the beginning and.to be declared cured by Dr Bove.. He never ordered blood.work and dismissed all concerns. No one ever mentioned the additional fees above the copay and the bills for all visits arrived after the last visit.. Unethical and unacceptable.

Horrible experience, never kept me in the loop as to what was going on. Refused to change any of my medications even though they weren't working. Also, he disclosed information to someone that wasn't supposed to know. Worst Doctor of all time
