While performing my first bladder cystoscope because an Urgent Care doctor thought I had a blood clot, Dr. Blitstein announced that I had bladder cancer. No sympathy, just announcement. He finished the scope and told me to get dressed and he would be back. I sat in the exam room alone for 10 minutes. When he returned I asked questions and looked numb. He said "I see this every day." I said I didn't and then I found another doctor. No sensitivity and a big ego.

Over 3 months out and still no control of my bladder. I have a physical job. I am "wet" everyday and told "it should get better".No improvement at all. I did explain my job during the consultation. And asked about recovery. Was told everyone months out "most" patients are down to 4 pads a day. Re think Cybernife if you have a physical job. Unless you like changing your male pad every hour. Then you have the cost of the pads. Over$450 for 3+ months.Not happy with lack of concern from the doctor.

Dr Blitstein was sympathetic to my concerns as to complications. I personally know of a botched robotic procedure, not in NJ, that ended up with opening up my brother. His surgeon cut an artery which caused him to bleed profusely.Ended up with a 8 hour procedure. I went to 4 different Dr.'s wanting to hear get alternative treatment.All said robotic surgery was best for my future health. Dr Blitstein fully explained every step.Post surgery he called me back to answer every question.EXCELLENT Doc
Dr. Blitstein is not able to deliver a diagnosis in laymans terms. I hardly understood a word he told me except the word cancer He used all the scientific terms to give me a diagnosis with no consideration for my emotional well being. He also gave his opinion that I had a tumor that was too large to perform a partial, so my whole kidney had to be removed. I not only Got a second opinion, but I got to keep most of my kidney and it is functioning at 95% capacity.
