What People Say About Dr. Lauren Byrne, MD

Dr. Byrne was in the room with me about 90 seconds. She did not explain anything or give me a chance to ask questions. She scheduled a procedure And I had no idea what it would involve. After the procedure, where results came out ok, nothing further was done to solve my problem. I was very frustrated.

Excellent physician! I found her to be insightful, direct and knowledgeable. The “bedside manner” comment on an earlier post puzzled me. She’s a courteous individual but I’m not paying for a “friend”, I’m interested in her training and skills which are beyond reproach. Perhaps some need to review her education and training before making a judgement on interpersonal skills. I will definitely continue to put my trust in her.

Not good - drove 1 hr 20 min, for a less than 5 min app't. I had a list of concerns but nothing concerned her, as she had no interest on hearing from me. Very upsetting and I still am over one week later. I will NOT go back to her. I didn't even have time to fill out the 6-7 pages of paper work and was told that's okay, so how would she know my problem being as one could not even talk with her. Letter is going to the CEO of Ironwood Urology. With those bad feelings -no surgery from her.

Dr. Bryne has no bedside manner at all. I went in with my wife for an appt and from the moment i was there she was on the defensive and played the part of “being the one and only Urologist” and did not want me asking questions. I wanted to know about something on the xray and she did not like me trying to show her where it was on the xray. This woman is very cold in nature. She is always standing up after a few minutes and she is finished with you. We will not be back to see her.

Very nice, but didn't listen to concerns. No hands on at all. Never did any touching to patient, told have tests done and come back. Never listened to heart, lungs. No one checked blood pressure, temperature.

Dr. Lauren Byrne, with her team, diagnosed my bladder cancer in a timely fashion. After my surgery, I am cancer free and and so appreciative of the excellent care that I received. She is very professional and personable.. No effort was spared to give me the best of care!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
