1st appointment was a mess "temporary" location w/ handwritten paper signs. Office staff is rude,not knowledgeable/trained. The urine test was unsanitary.Spent 10 mins w/ me billed & put in my chart a procedure I didn't have done. MRI techs botched my test, destroyed my veins & put me into a panic attack. Got billed for it & another $9,000 to have redone properly. After waiting 2hrs for surgery she rescheduled me for a patient who wasn't even there. Billed me & Medicare for procedures not done!!

She is very compassionate with her patients not like some male doctors is very disrespectful listens and together you both come up with the right one for you. Excellent with her bed side manners. It's so important to patients. I did not want to give her up but my insurence denied her coverage for she is not with my BCBS ADVANTAGE I hope everyone wanting her as your docs be sure she is in contract with your insurance . I have no problem recommending Dr. Lauren M. Byrens to all who ask me.
in Chandler, AZ |
Does not take the time to speak with her patients nor show empathy. Felt very rushed and hurried on three separate occasions. Just got the feeling that she really did not care for her patients nor look into the root cause of some of the patient problems. There was no feeling that she remembered anything from the prior visit dialogues....it was like she was seeing me as a new patient every visit...even though the last visit was a third.

Excellent demeanor, attention to my diagnosis, and she truly cared to make sure me and my wife understood what was occurring. Thank you Dr. Byrne!
in Casa Grande, AZ |
She doesn't have time for Patients. I had never been to a urology doctor before. Having to take a urine test when I have no need, then giving me antibiotic in case they gave me an infection with the exam. I have had only two bladder infections once in 1973 and 1984. I needed information on incontinence. I had already read the hand out information. I had taken many of the the meds with no help. I had hoped a dr knew more about what worked. Total waste of time.
in Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Byrne took the time to explain my medical condition and to go through the follow up steps I needed to take with both her and my primary care. She treated me with respect and concern and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a urologist.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Horrible follow up experience. They charged me my co-pay again (for a follow up, really?). 10 minutes after my appt time they had just started to get room ready. 15 minutes after appt time they called me into the room, 30 minutes after my appointment time with no sign of Dy Byrne I left, I don't have such time to waste. Now after having a very horrific test done at her suggestion, I have no answers and no course of action to help me with my problem. I would never recommend her to anyone.
in Phoenix, AZ |
I had two Doctors so two diff surgeries at the same time and all the appointmemts leading up to surgery Dr Byrne was cal and professional and really seemed to care about making sure all the tests were
Dr. Byrne takes the time to explain my medical issues and treatment options. She's friendly, professional and courteous. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a urologist, and I really believe she cares about my well being. Thank you Dr. Byrne!
Tempe, AZ |
Dr. Byrne is extremely professional and sympathetic. She takes her time in explaining the diagnosis and options for treatment. I would recommend her to a friend or family member without hesitation!
