What People Say About Dr. Mark Dersch, MD

I had a bladder tumor resected that was encrusted with stones. Surgery on the 15th of August...one week ago. I came to in the Post op and asked the nurses if there was any stones...she looked at all my several bottles of urine and said "doesn't look like it...clear...no blood. Then I found out Dr. Dersh told my twin brother that it was a stone encrusted tumor. One week later I feel like a new man. I cant say it was easy going for me...but IMHO I think Dr Dersh is one of the Best Urologists.

Dr. Dersch wrote a prescription for me, and then would not do the prior authorization that was needed to get prescription. When the staff member called me that he would not give prior authorization until I got labs which I had done a week earlier. Seemed like he just wanted a follow up apt. My primary care never received any report from him.

Dr. Mark Dersch is a wonderful urologist and an excellent surgeon. He was able to remove several kidney stones, including one rather large one, while I was under anesthesia. The surgery only left a small scar on the right side of my back. He sent me home with enough medication to get me through the healing process with very little pain. I trust Dr. Dersch completely and I know he has my best interest at heart. He is a very kind and understanding doctor. I highly recommend him.

Well organized and well run offices. Dr. Dersch took/takes the time to talk eye to eye with my husband and I. He makes sure we understand diagnosis and treatment options. I'm a nurse, but I didn't tell the office/doc that detail. His communications are consistently patient and family friendly.
