Go elsewhere. Prostate biopsy left me in the hospital with an e-coli infection for four days. Dr. Engel was nowhere to be found. DIdn't even call until I was being discharged. Keep looking, I would rather take my chances with cancer than put my health in his hands ever again.

Arrogant and aloof. He left me an inch and a half shorter, impotent and leaky. Shop around if your looking for a compassionate doctor. Wasn’t honest about the side effects of prostate removal. Horrible bedside manner, he never saw/spoke to me after the surgery. I would not recommend him.

Dr Engel is an outstanding surgeon and he is totally focused on his patients. From initially meeting him to the actual surgery at GW Hospital I knew exactly what was going to happen. He took time to explain everything and I never felt he was too busy to answer my questions or those of my wife. We had two meetings, to explain the different procedures and options available and answer any initial questions and the second to answer any concerns that I may have had. The meetings included my wife.

Agree with almost every review. Dr. Engel is knowledgeable but direct. He is a decent listener and will speak back in layman’s terms. That being said, the office staff is DREADFUL and count on waiting for at least 45 minutes for every visit. This won’t matter to most, but he is also very easy on the eyes. :)

Dr. Engel will make you wait, so get used to it. But he's an excellent doctor, communicates well, explained everything clearly and carefully without using a lot of medical jargon, and all of his staff have been very pleasant to deal with. Robotic surgery for prostate cancer went incredibly well with surprisingly quick recovery time.

The doctor is friendly, seems competent. When I called to say I was urinating blood- I was Engel's patient at the time--I was not given an appointment and he never received a call back. Astonishing, if not venial . If your doctor won't call you when you are in extreme pain --it's time to switch doctors. I saw Engel twice earlier--he gave me a old- generation pill for an enlarged prosthate --as I subsequently learned and performed an unsuccesful and excruciating procedure with no anesthesia

Dr Engel is a very compassionate care giver. You might not think so upon first meeting him because he is a very direct communicator- no nonsense, but he's mastered the art of cutting to the chase while really checking for understanding. He does all of this in a matter of minutes but when all is said and done, you really feel he has listened and goes straight to treatment options. He is very accessible and just a great guy.

Read his ratings carefully before letting Dr. Engel operate on you. My father developed a life-threatening infection, which was NOT Dr. Engel's fault -- but when the emergency room staff AND my parents tried to contact him, he was completely unresponsive. Three days later, the office called to ask if he was coming in for his follow-up appointment. The answer? No, he's in intensive care from a complication. I then met him -- he is arrogant and uncaring, and we have found another urologist.
