Dr. David is very thorough and tells you exactly what's wrong and what should be done. He tells you different choices of procedures to help you and asks you what you would choose to be done. I've known him a long time and he has helped me and my husband through some difficult times.

Dr. David receives my highest regard and recommendation. His experience and professionalism are of unequal stature. I sought Dr. David to conduct prostate surgery. The surgery has been very successful and I am thankful to have had him as the surgeon. He is skilled, personable and demonstrates care and concern for the patient both preoperative and postoperative. Thank you Dr. David for making what could have been an uncomfortable process comfortable. I revere you. Also, kudos to the staff.

Came for Urolift and to get off meds, and he found a chronic infection my previous urologist missed. Just curing this with the right antibiotics doubled my function, and the procedure itself has been like a miracle: 6 weeks out and off meds, I feel like a new man. I schedule early morning to avoid wait times increasing through the day: he's very thorough with patients, and thus seems to fall behind. Great doctor gave me a great outcome.

Post lithotripsy visit. Short wait. Urine sample. Taken to waiting room. Blood pressure taken. Short wait. Sonogram of both kidneys/bladder. Back to waiting room. Short wait and Dr David talks to me about results. Asks if I've done 24 hour urine test to find out where stones are coming from. Sets that up and I'm done.

Always happy with the people in this office. Adam is the best. Everything is explained clearly and with details and every question I may have is answered concisely and satisfactorily. Wait times vary but I am usually done in a reasonable time. Very easy to deal with here, unlike many medical offices and services. Keep up the good work.

I was a longtime patient but there has been a drastic change and not the same caring doctor I once knew. I'm disabled and suffer from severe spine and neck problems, I barely walk even with a cane. The policy at the office is they won't refill prescriptions unless you come in for your annual check-up, which I understand except I was in a crisis situation and left several phone calls to the doctor explaining my situation to get 3 simple non-narcotic medications filled. He never returned my calls
