This man needs help. On my third visit following multiple tests he still didn't have a diagnosis. OK, what's next? His answers to questions consisted of I don't know to That's a good question. After more questions and no answers he decided I was agitated (I was) and should leave. After a few words of my own I did leave. Today I receive a letter that I was consistently argumentative with him and his staff. That is a total fabrication.

I went to Dr. Borden after moving here from out of town. I’ve had prostate cancer and surgery 12 years ago. My PSA was rising and I had been removed from Testosterone supplements by my previous doctor. I had also had some work for a blockage in my kidney, which had been caused by radiation. Dr. Borden told me right out he was sure I had a cancer recurrence. He did no tests to determine that before saying so. He was very dismissive and showed no compassion whatsoever. My wife had questions which

Dr Borden was my third Urologist and the only one that provided me with a satisfactory result. I was in the emergency room on three different visits within two weeks due to a greatly enlarged prostate. Dr Borden performed a TURP procedure that has changed my quality of life for the better. My previous TURP procedure never gave me the expected results that I was promised. I now enjoy life without the complications associated with an enlarged prostate. I would recommend Dr Borden to anyone.
