I have know Dr. Rector for 11 years. He is an excellent urologist and after observing him in my capacity as Anesthetist and now as my own urologist. I could of gone to anyone in the Bay Area and work with other urologists as well. His office wait times short.
in San Francisco, CA |
1) Lacking in bedside manner: while objectivity/dispassionate demeanor are good traits for a doctor to have, they should be balanced by a tiny amount (at least) of empathy. Dr. Rector did not display anything remotely approaching this - in fact displayed a strange robotic manner during consultations that was contradicted by later observed interaction with staff. 2) Told me my symptoms were beyond his pay grade but failed to offer further advice. Thankfully UCSF & Stanford exist.
