Sent biopsy to a lab that did not identify aggressive adenocarcinoma cells. Followed with incorrect MRI test for biopsied prostrate. Told patient with grade 5 cancer cells that treatment could be postponed 9 months.

Dr. Root treated my wife for kidney stones and we were very satisfied with the quality of his service. Dr. Root is responsive and truly cares about his patients. If you have a kidney stone Dr. Root is the go to guy.

Dr. Root was extremely helpful when dealing with my 88 year old father's sensitive urological issues. His grace, poise, and compassion during all facets of my father's care impressed me and my family immensely. His office staff was very helpful and made the entire stressful time in our lives much simpler. I simply cannot thank Dr. Root enough for all the help he has given me and my family, and I recommend him highly to anyone needing top notch medical care.

Dr. Root was exceptionally capable and compassionate in the care of my 98-year-old father with bladder cancer. He made the difficult end of life care as thoughtful and gracious as could be. Our whole family is so grateful to him.
