Patient Reviews (5)
Waterford, MI |
Always kind. Always knowledgable, compassionate care. Takes time and explains. A great doctor but a great human being first.
in Grand Blanc, MI |
He saved my life almost 17 years ago. That's reason enough for 5 stars. He is sometimes difficult to see because the hospital frequently calls him in for emergencies. Because Michigan Urology is a huge medical corporation and because of the times we live in, there's all kinds of red tape and I think the staff takes it on the chin as a result. The Doctor is affable and gentle and genuinely concerned about his patients.
in Pontiac, MI |
He is very dr patient friendly. He is been tremendous with my husband care. He takes his time with you and explains everything in detail. I would recommend him to anyone
in Northern Oakland County, MI |
I was told he is top-notch but I was told wrong. Waited one hour and 25 minutes for him to ask the same (almost verbatim) questions I had to answer on the printed forms. The office staff is a bunch of snakes. They really don't know what they're doing. My impression is they all think they are God-like and doing you a real favor by taking your money. Unfortunately this medical business is not unlike many others where the focus is on money, money, money. Patient health be damned.
in Ortonville, MI |
He is always late for appointments, Office techs told me the office is poorly run. I noticed a high turnover of employees.. Missed a one inch Bladder stone. It almost cost me my Life. Hes always in a hurry. Hes obviously no longer my Doctor. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ANYONE.
