Dr. Aaronson operated on me and oerforated my bladder. I understand that this could be a side effect with this procedure, but his total lack of treatment afterwards was unbelievable. I went back to him 2 or 3 times. My insides were burning from the chemo that seeped out of the bladder and he never admitted to perhaps oerforating me. I went to another urologist and needed a follow-up surgery. Fat had seeped out of my bladder and need to be removed. What should have been an uneventful procedure initially turned into a 5 month nightmare. I would NOT RECCOMEND Dr. Aaronson fir anything.

I feel very lucky to have Dr. Aaronson to take care of my uncle, who was sick and needed an operation. Dr. Aaronson is very prefessional and has such compassion toward his patients. He performed an operation on my uncle, and went to the hospital to check him out 2 times even it was weekend, and Dr. Aaronson was not on duty. Dr. Aaronson patiently talked with me and my family to expain what was going on and what we needed to do.Now my uncle is in recovering. and we want Thank You toDr. Aaronson

Dr. Aaronson can be a real jerk, if it wasn't for his staff and the convenient location, my first visit should have been my only visit. He doesn't do lots of testing and procedures, he is not willing to investigate any further to find solutions. No compassion for pain, none whatsoever. I feel for the elderly patients who visit him. No one wants to be told to come back next week and be told to just drink more water, when you are in pain. He is good for a one time UTI, nothing else.
