Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great experience
Dr Sleeper is a great urologist. Although he didn't perform my surgery, he did provide follow up care for several years, and was very accommodating to my needs. I stay as informed of my medical condition as a non dr can, and whenever I asked for a specific type of test, he would approve without question. Excellent physician.

REVIEW OF DR. SLEEPER and MY DISSATISFACTION
All the negative review are correct. Please read... in a crowded waiting room of patients were the loud sounds of receptionists holding personal conversation with the privacy window wide open. One receptionist even mentioned that they scheduled the wrong procedure with a patient. This was audible for everyone to hear and I'm shocked patients didn't walk out. I waited 30 mins after my scheduled time to be seen. The appointment with Dr. Sleeper lasted a couple minutes with no resolution to my ailment. It has been several days since my X-ray and I've received no results, via phone nor My Chart, even after my multiple attempts. MY RESULTS ARE BEING HELD HOSTAGE! What was the point of being seen here? It is my opinion that if this establishment cannot timely and properly address patient issues, then they need to be closed for business. If I would have checked reviews here or through Google, I would have avoided at all costs.

He is cold-hearted and has poor communication skills, he needs to get training on how to deal with people.

I was dealing with kidney stones and went to the hospital. I was told I would not be able to pass on my own who was my Urologist? The nurse recommended DR. Sleeper it was the best decision . I had just received a stent in my heart and removing the stones was not going to be easy. He took the time to go over every possibility making sure my wife snd I understood. For someone I never meant before he treated us like family. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great person and doctor.

Dr. Sleeper preformed my prostate surgery 2 years ago and I could not be happier with the total experience. He definitely is at the top of his field. I was fortunate to have such capable care.

I went to see this guy through Tri-West (VA). I was looking forward to this appointment because I’ve been worried about pain in my groin.. Well the appointment lasted a whole 3 mins.. He told me nothing was wrong with me and to take Advil. That some guys just have pain in their groin. I should just live with it and take Advil. I was shocked no test no nothing.. This dude is horrible..

Dr. Sleeper is simply the best! I had been having issues for some time and had even spoken with my internist about it, but had no luck with treatment until I saw Dr. Sleeper. He was patient and thorough,spending quite a bit of time listening and explaining everything. He was very kind,even when I needed reassurance. I wont hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
