Patient Reviews (1)
in Tucson, AZ |
Went to Fagelson for fiduciary implants prior to Cyberknife treatment. He botched the job. After trying to implant the fiducials he said"I am not sure I got them in the right location". Two days later I was in the hospital having them done correctly by Dr Kelly. Not a follow up by Fagelson,no call,no nothing. Avoid at all costs!
Thank you for the review, Lem, and sorry for the delayed response. Patients' health is our first priority, and the situation you describe does not live up to Urology Associates high standards. I would very much like to discuss this with you, to possibly remedy the situation but also to learn from it. Please call me at me directly at 303-733-0662 ext. 1231. Regards, Sue Torkelson Practice Administrator, Urology Associates
