Dr. Ravi Munver is excellent and I would highly recommend him. My father had his first meeting with with him via Telemed during the COVID crisis. Of course this made us feel uncertain of what was to happen-however our first meeting during that appointment was very reassuring. Dr. Munver was kind, understanding & very knowledgeable-and took time to fully explain all that we needed to know. He was extremely patient with all of our questions making my father feel that he valued him as his new patient. Our following appointments & surgeries followed suit and we were very pleased. He reassured both of us that my father was in good hands. Thank you Dr. Munver ! - Sincerely, DS

Dr Munver performed an adrenalectomy on me. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He is able to develop an amazing rapport and can ease any presurgery stress you may have. He is extremely thorough every step of the way. His fellow had such an amazing happy personality so that helps as well during the in person visits and follow ups in the hospital. His front desk does take a while sometimes to answer due helping with so many patients by the entire team but they always call back in timely manner.

I saw Dr. Munver for cystoscopy. After hearing horror stories, I was in extreme anxiety about the procedure, but Dr. Munver was incredibly skilled. Although uncomfortable, it was not as painful as people had shared it would be, and it was over quickly. He has so much weekly experience for this procedure that patients are spared a lot of fumbling. Unfortunately, my diagnosis was not good; he was kind & uplifting as he shared the news and immediately helped me find the right surgeons. He and his partner, Dr. Degan were so compassionate and helpful. They followed up with me and my wife and we were so appreciative of their concern. The office environment and the medical and reception staff, especially in light of COVID-19, were organized, thoughtful, and kind.

Dr. Munver performed robotic laparoscopic surgery to remove my kidney and ureter. From the beginning, he made me and my family feel comfortable and secure. He did a number of tests before offering the surgery as an option. It was a relief to finally have test results that could help inform a decision, after years of being unsure of the best option based on minimal testing and scans. He was thorough, careful, and confident. He explained everything to me in detail in a way that made me feel comfortable with this decision from the beginning. The surgery was successful and I recovered rather quickly. I appreciate Dr. Munver and his entire team for taking such good care of me. It was easy to put my faith in a doctor like Dr. Munver.

I have been a patient of Dr. Munver for approximately 9 years. My previous urologist said I would need to have open surgery (with a long, painful recovery process) to remove a cancerous kidney tumor. Doctor Munver was able to perform robotic surgery to remove the tumor. Dr. Munver does not limit your choices to his expertise. If it can be done better by someone else, he will let you know where to go to receive the proper and BEST treatment. I have been cancer-free ever since.

Had a cyst on my kidney that had to be removed. Meet with the doctor to discuss what had to be done. He made me feel comfortable and confident. His team at the hospital made me and my family feel relaxed during and after the procedure. Follow up meeting a week later showed the procedure was done very well. Highly recommend the doctor.

My primary doctor highly recommended Dr. Munver for my small kidney mass. I had originally agreed to have the procedure done by another doctor at another hospital group. But I am glad I followed my PCP's advice. He made time for me, explaining the Robotic/Laporoscopic Partial Nephrectomy procedure he recommended that would save my kidney. He and his staff were very thorough before and after the procedure. Other than a Tonsilectomy as a kid, this was my first surgery as an adult. I am very impressed with Dr. skills, and his overall bedside manner is outstanding. He makes you feel like you have known him all your life. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Munver removed a malignant lesion via robotic surgery from my right kidney with 100% success. No chemo or radiation was necessary after my surgery. He is compassionate and thoroughly explains everything. I never had a doubt that I was not being treated by the best doctor. He is absolutely wonderful in every way, and I would recommend him to anyone needing urology help.

From the first visit Dr Munver, and his team, gave me a positive feeling about their competence and compassion that calmed the roiling emotions attendant to learning that one has a 9cm 'growth' in his left kidney and an atrophied right kidney which may not be up to carrying on alone! Drs Munver and Desroches took the time to discuss my circumstances in detail and answer my many questions regarding possible future outcomes. They made me feel like they had all the time in the world and Dr Munver personally escorted me to the Nephrologist in order to expedite that meeting. Removal of my left kidney was almost anti-climatic it was so uneventful! The Team made regular visits and updates, during my hospital stay, keeping lines of communication open. I'm now waiting for the Pathology report, while monitoring the performance of the remaining (right) kidney. Best way to communicate with the Team is via MYCARE.com; quite responsive and less stress than attempts to reach them by phone.

Dr. Munver provided me with thorough explanations all the while showing kindness and attentiveness to my questions and concerns. He made me feel part of the decision making process. Above all, he is a superb surgeon and a leader in lifesaving cancer care. Being diagnosed with cancer is frightening, but the compassion and personal care Dr. Munver showed me pre-surgery assured me I was in the right place with the cutting edge of cancer treatment. My surgery was without complications, proving to be a positive outcome as well. I was also under the care of Dr. Bethany Desroches who provided me with the post-op visits that assured me my recovery was seamless. Dr. Munver's office staff, including Eileen Kochis, RN, are professional, pleasant. They always quick to respond to my messages and questions. Because of the high volume of calls the office receives, using the online portal assures the quickest response time to the questions. Thanks for the spectacular work you have done!

I was referred to Dr. Munver by a friend. During my first appointment I knew that he was the surgeon I wanted to perform my prostatectomy. Dr. Munver explained what this surgery entailed, what I could expect, and he answered all of my questions. He did not rush our appointment and made me feel at ease. He treated me like family. He and his entire staff were thorough and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Munver.

Had a prostate (robotic) surgery in March 2017. After surgery, doctor never showed up, only his assistant/resident came to find out how do I feel. After 2.5 years after the surgery I still have incontinence and no erection. My cancer was very small and prostate was not enlarged. I still wonder who was doing the surgery because the outcome does not fit doctor's experience.

As a patient of Dr Ravi Munver, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional medical care I received at HUMC. I underwent a partial nephrectomy. The pre-op, op and post-op medical attention in the Urology Department was exceptional. Dr Monver and his medical associates provided me with the highest level of professional care, with compassion and understanding. The nursing staff on the Urology floor of the hospital was beyond compare. I thank you all! Cheryl LaSpada

I contacted Dr. Munver's office from out of state because he came highly recommended to treat my sons recently diagnosed testicular cancer. His medical secretary was so compassionate and got us immediately . When I saw Dr. Munver he immediately put us at ease with his kind manner and reassurance. He answered all of our questions and was able to schedule surgery the next day. I was convinced that my son was in the Best possible hands. Dr. Munver is an outstanding surgeon!
