He is a well-educated person and listens to his patients. He tries his best to help all of his patients. He is a well-qualified doctor and in my opinion, he is the BEST urologist in vegas.

Excellent surgeon. Removed cancerous prostate using robotics. Good follow-up. If you follow this doctor's instructions you will have a good outcome.

Dr K is a true professional with very little to no bedside manner. No complaints about his skill or staff, just felt he could have been a bit more personable. But I guess he doesn't get paid to talk. My procedure was successful.

Absolutely the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. I would avoid him at all costs.

Good with bedside manner but when diagnosed with prostate cancer, he just dumps you with the nurse and doesn't do any followup, nor does he suggest a list of oncologists. Very frustrated and scared after a diagnoses of cancer.
