Run DON'T walk from this guy. He disrespected this multiple-cancer patient by giving me "false information" about having Urological CANCER Treatments in his office! He is ego driven and CANNOT be trusted. Staff NOT adequately trained & they NEVER get back to you on Emergency Situations. Regards.

Had several visits with Funk. Prostate issue. He was distracted and did not seem interested in my issues. Left Banner and have a great urologist. His staff was not very friendly either.

I like Dr. Funk very much, but living in the Santa Catalina Villas in Tucson, I find that going to Ajo to see him is too long of a trip for me and too expensive. I have to hire a car and driver (called "Companion Service" here) to get to Ajo to see him. Does Dr. Funk have any offices closer to me where I could see him?

Had Holep procedure for BPH and all went perfectly. Dr Funk had explained procedure, why I had to have various tests prior to procedure. Really appreciated his explanation of possible side effects post surgery (verbally and in writing). The key question is: Knowing what I know now, would I do this Holep again? with Dr Funk? at Banner Health Hospital? The answer is YES, YES, and YES. And though it was a bit inconvenient to fly into Tucson and arrange hotels, etc -- it was absolutely worth it.

Dr Funk was my urologist for approx 8 years. He performed a laser process on my prostate and it worked great. I missed seeing him for 3 years and when I went back my PSA reading was within the range for my age. He took the time to compare my PSA reading from 3 yrs ago to the most recent score. Based upon his discovery, he ordered an MRI which showed that I had an aggressive form of prostrate cancer. Prostrate removed and Cancer caught early thanks to Dr Funk!

I highly recommend Dr. Funk. I found him to be a friendly, personable, humble, and a caring person with a great sense of humor. As a physician, he was meticulous, careful and thorough in his analysis of my condition. In preparing me mentally for surgery, he explained the process in a way that a layman could understand. He said I may not have pain afterwards, but gave me a script for pain meds just in case. In fact, I had no pain. after surgery, the staff gave me a signed a thank you note.
