The combination of extraordinary knowledge with the epitome of professionalism and a truly unique empathetic bedside manner, make for a doctor I want as my personal physician. Doctor Nezu is a rare commodity in a physician that is honest, frank and direct. He expresses his diagnosis in detail, list courses of action and then gives his opinion of what he would do under the circumstances. In the end, he then asks my opinion. Because of his chosen field of expertise, he routinely deals with sensitive issues that are deeply personal. Again, his honest and frank responses give the patient comfort and hope. Appointments are like one regular guy talking to another guy. The result is Dr. Nezu is "my kinda guy." I would without hesitation, recommend Dr. Nezu to my friends and family. He has earned my trust and confidence.

I was "assigned" to Dr. Nezu after our 2nd urologist left the practice. He has been disinterested, has not reviewed my husband's chart, slow to respond to phone calls. It is very difficult to view him as the manager of my prostate cancer.

I had kidney stones in the right kidney. Dr. Akhbar placed a stent in and around my right kidney. He did a fantastic job. Then I was assigned to Dr. Nezu. This doctor was exceptional. He knew his stuff and he made me feel extremely comfortable about what my next steps for removing the stones and implanting another temporary stent. He performed the surgery with no problems. This past Wednesday, I went in to have the second stent removed. He took it out with no real pain. He is so great

I contacted Dr. Nezu after consulting with other Urologists in the area regarding hypogonadism. Every other urologist I met with spent a short time with me and simply offered a lifetime of injections. Dr. Nezu worked with me to diagnose the underlying factors in my condition and develop an alternative treatment plan. My condition and overall health have significantly improved on Dr. Nezu's plan and I am free from the side effects of pellets and shots.

Dr. Nezu administered a hormone shot that all the other doctors I have consulted agree was WAY too high a dosage. He not only did not take the care to consider this, based on medical history, but has made it almost impossible to reach him to discuss the ramifications and possible solutions to the issues HE CAUSED.

He is very interactive, listens carefully to the patient's questions and concerns and takes a very systematic, conservative approach to the treatment. In my case, it was very accurate and I recovered very fast. He is very open and forthcoming and does withhold any information from the patient. He is very approachable and responds very quickly to follow up inquiries made through either the web portal to his practice, or the phone.

I've been seeing Dr. Nezu for about a year now after he performed my surgery to have a kidney stone removed. He takes the time to explain the details and options while making you feel calm and reassuring that he has your best interests first.

Doctor Nezu is a remarkable and talented urologist. He saw me in the Howard County General ER on a Sunday afternoon, got me an appointment at his office within 2 days, and then into for surgery in another two days. I will be making Dr. Nezu and the Central Maryland Urology Associates my urology practice going forward. I live in Virginia, but the commute to receive this level and quality of treatment is more than worth it. I could not recommend them more highly.
