I found Dr. Wagner to be very professional and informative throughout the whole processes. I found communication with him and his staff easy all my calls were returned within a reasonable period of time. All of my questions were answered thoroughly and I was given the opportunity to ask questions. He took his time explaining everything I wanted to ask.

Tony – Oct 11, 2021
My experience with Dr. Wagner was excellent! Meeting him for my pre-op, he explained my condition and test results in a manner which was easy for me to understand. He was also very clear and informative laying out the pros and cons of each of my options. Choosing surgery, he was helpful in giving me the information and providing a support network as I prepared for my procedure. He laid out the entire process again before he performed the operation. My post-op visit with Dr. Wagner was also informative and was able to put me at ease at the result of the procedure and what to expect going forward. I would say the entire experience, while daunting, was a very positive one due to Dr. Wagner's attitude and demeanor.

I am having a first class experience with Dr Wagner both pre- and post prostate removal. Dr Wagner is a consummate professional and with his depth of experience can very confidently predict outcomes and strategies for managing the condition. I would unreservedly recommend Dr Wagner for prostate and bladder treatment.

I consulted with two top urologists in the area about my prostrate cancer. I liked Dr. Wagners advice which was straight forward and to the point as to what he could do for me. I was interested in robotic prostate surgery which he is the subject expert. During my research of Dr. Wagner, I was able speak with a couple of his colleagues that described him as impeccable and that he never rests on his laurels but continues to strive to improve. I joined a prostate cancer support group and was pleasantly surprised that a lot of the members had robotic prostrate surgery performed by Dr. Wagner and all said that he was the best. Dr. Wagner performed the robotic prostrate surgery for me on 6/30/2020. Everything went exceptionally well. The post-op pathology report was phenomenal with no signs of malignancy in the margins. I am so grateful and thankful to Dr. Wagner for helping me.

John – Nov 16, 2019
I recently had Robotic prostate surgery at Hartford hospital with Dr. Joseph Wagner as my surgeon. I am extremely pleased with the care that Dr. Wagner and his entire staff treated me throughout my care. Dr. Wagner has been very caring and was always available to help and answer questions I may have had. Before deciding on surgery I had been on Active surveillance with Hartford Hospital. I have been in Dr. Wagner’s care for over 6 years before it was time to have further treatment and a Radical prostatectomy. Dr. Wagner was the best choice for me and I can't recommend him highly enough. He is extremely caring, knowledgeable and an expert DaVinci Robotic Surgeon. He is very personable and easy to talk with, well respected by his peers and a leader in his field. I couldn't have made a wiser choice at such a critical point in my life. His nurses, staff and practice are easily reached and ready to support you at any time.

Very unhappy with Dr. Wagner and his assistant they do not listen to the patients. I would look a different doctor and assistant that listen to you to make you feel better rather than laugh in you face and brush it off. They have made me feel worse rather that helping me You must trust you doctor and they never made me feel like they care I am not the only one that feels that way I am one of the few to share it with you

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!
