What People Say About Dr. Joseph Wagner, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Upon my prostate cancer diagnosis by another urologist I went to Dr. Wagner for a second opinion and was very pleased with the meeting. He explained all my test results in a way you can understand and put a lot of things into perspective concerning my current diagnosis leaving me very comfortable with the decision I made to have surgery after months of indecision. Also liked the idea of the free info share group seminars that is offered around the state which really helps prepare you for what to expect before and after surgery. I give Dr. Wagner and his staff a 5 star rating and would highly recommend him to others!

My experience with Dr. Wagner consists of only two consultations, but both of great importance as respects the direction that should be taken regarding the treatment of my cancer. His professionalism is obvious and his reaching out to listen to my concerns so welcome. His explanation of the choices for my treatment were so detailed but completely understandable. A plus is his presenting his thoughts of my situation (twice) before a panel to obtain a group opinion. Likelihood of my recommending Dr. Wagner to others is 100!

I first met Dr Wagner in Jan 15’ and I’ve been in his care after a blindsiding Stage 3 bladder cancer diagnosis. After chemotherapy and a radical cystectomy in June 15’ he still follows my case like it was yesterday. He saved my life. I can’t stress enough how lucky you are if you are blessed to be his patient. He is beyond kind, completely genuine and honest, and present, always. To say he is caring does not do it justice. To say he’s beyond expert and capable- definitely that. No matter what, I know he’s there for me, even when it’s not warranted. Always follows up, and always acknowledges my situation, both physically and mentally. He always wants the best for us. Patient beyond belief. Because we all know as patients, we can be exhausting- but Dr Wagner will never make you feel bad about reaching out reasonably. Highly recommending him would be an understatement.

Dr. Wagner's care over the three years my cancer progressed was excellent. With an ultimate goal of a radical prostatectomy, it was not urgently needed at the time of my first visit. He provided me with informed understanding of my cancer, helped to plot a course of treatment that was appropriate for me at that stage and a plan to step it up as the cancer progressed. In the end, the surgery went exactly as explained, planned and with the expected outcomes. Great staff too. Highly recommend!

I live in FL and was in CT for one week. With very short notice Dr. Wagner was kind enough to see me at 6:30 a.m.in his Htfd. office. How many doctors would do that? I certainly appreciate him going out of his way to see me and most certainly appreciate his advise and guidance. I also want to thank Susanne and Jacklin.

My urologist in Montana retired but he recommended I have my prostate removed or radiated based on my PSA and Gleason scores. Having heard various “horror stories” concerning radiation treatment I decided I wanted it removed and done robotically. I researched numerous doctors and hospitals to determine where to have the procedure performed. Dr Wagner’s had excellent reviews and experience in performing robotic prostatectomy using the da Vinci Surgical System. I highly recommend Dr. Wagner

Probably one of the best doctors I’ve had. Explained everything to me regarding my options for treating my prostate cancer. Great bedside manor. Made my wife feel extremely comfortable after my surgery by explaining exactly what was done and how how it went. Just an all around great doctor.

My primary care physician referred me to Dr. Wagner when I was diagnosed with an elevated PSA level. Dr. Wagner performed a thorough evaluation using state-of-the-art imaging and biopsy techniques, took the time to explain the testing results, diagnosis and treatment options in a professional and caring manner, and ultimately performed my robotic prostatectomy surgery with outstanding results. I highly recommend Dr. Wagner.

I was referred by my urologist to Dr. Wagner for prostate surgery. In his evaluation and discussion he was thorough, answered all my questions clearly and exuded professionalism and deep expertise and experience in his field. It was clear from the excellent outcome of the surgery that he was technically excellent. As a physician myself I found him to be one of the best doctors of any specialty I ever was treated by.

Excellent experience. If you've received the (much loathed) news that indeed, your PSA level is climbing, Dr. Wagner and his team are the place you want to be. There's no doubt he's a busy man, and not much of a "hand holder". Yet this medical group is dedicated to helping you make decisions based on large amounts of information, and an experienced surgeon. A very good combination. I'd have no issues recommending Dr. Wagner and his medical group to my own family members.

I was referred to Dr. Wagner by my local Urologist and primary Doctor. After three visits and and biopsy I am 100% confident in his ability to treat my condition. I'm lucky to have found him.

I am so grateful that I had Dr Wagner perform my recent prostatectomy. He was not only very knowledgeable and highly skilled, but he took the time to make sure that we knew what to expect. Moreover, I am not having anywhere near the post-op pain or other issues that I was concerned about.

Dr Wagner's manner and expertise immediately instilled confidence in his competence and abilities. His commitment to my treatment and follow up prompted calls from Dr Wagner after long hours in surgery and even on weekends. Dr Wagner helped get me and my family thru a very difficult surgery. We were blessed to have him as our Surgeon and in our corner.
