    Dr. Carey performed TURP surgery on me at Sarasota Memorial. He did an excellent job and I have been feeling wonderful ever since. He keeps his patients informed and is friendly and caring. I highly recommend him! Office staff are welcoming and kind also.

    Left after waiting an hour and 20 minutes past my appointment time. This was in the morning not the afternoon, hard to believe he was this far behind after the office had only been open and hour. Others in the office said this is common problem and usually wait as much as 2 to 2 and ½ hours past appointment time. My wife went last week and waited almost 2 hours past her appointment time to get in. This is extremely disrespectful to patients. I don't care if he is the best Dr in the world.

    Absolutely the best doctor i have had the privilege to see as a patient. He spent two hours explaining the diagnosis, treatment options and answering questions. He also spent more time on lots of follow ups over the next year making sure i was recovering and getting back to the best possible condition that i could achieve. You will not find a more genuine, caring person than Dr. Carey. He has a busy schedule and i am willing to wait for the best. I high recommend Dr. Carey (Robo Doc).

    I was referred to Dr Carey by my physician Dr June and I went through the process of determining the extent of my prostate cancer and recommending a treatment. A radical prostatectomy was indicated but Dr Carey assured us that complications were unlikely. Absolutely true. I have a zero PSA and no incontinence at all. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Carey to anyone. His attitude and the time he spent with us was phenomenal. I think I have a great result and a great future. Thanks Dr Carey!

    Apparently this doctor has no concern for his patients. I was referred to him two plus weeks ago and he never responded. I have called and been put on terminal hold multiple times (hour plus). Finally today I connected and was told his "nurse" would call me back; but she never did. I even tried sending an email to their "info" email account which, to no surprise, went unanswered. I'll find someone more caring and professional!

    Dr. Carey is a friendly physician with a caring, reassuring manner and his diagnosis, explanation and alternatives are clear and concise. I always leave my appointment with a feeling of confidence and contentment.

    I was at my wits end suffering from Interstitial Cystitis. Dr. Carey treated it and I no longer suffer the terrible pain and frequency of urination. It is true that you sometimes wait for him to see you. However, when you are in his office, he will give you all the attention you need not like some doctors that hurry through the visit. As far as I am concerned he is the best urologist in Sarasota.

    Dr Carey is an amazing physician. I just had him perform surgery this week and can say that he was top notch. Not only was the surgery a success but he was extremely attentive and provide us incredible care. I highly recommend Dr Carey!!!

    I have been to Dr. Carey's office twice. First time I waited 2 1/2 hrs. to be seen. On my second visit I waited another 2 hrs. When I asked the receptionist how much longer to be seen, her response was that the dr. was 2 hrs.behind schedule and that it would be another 2 hrs. Dr. Carey seems knowledgeable but office staff is terrible. Proper office etiquette need to be learned and practiced.
    Been in the waiting room an hour and a half already - totally unacceptable. We had a surgery center up north and never treated patients in this manner - absolutely no respect for anyone else's time.

    Dr. Carey is terrific, but his office is a nightmare. It is next to impossible to reach anyone. There is only one number and you usually get an answering service, or a busy signal after going through a torturous answering system. If you are lucky, you will get someone after a long wait, and they may deign to pass on a message to someone to call you back. No direct numbers are given and no email addresses are supplied. My hospital nurse even tried to reach Dr. Carey, but his box was full!

    Dr Carey used robotic surgery to assist on my recent surgery for an ovarian cyst. He is extremely skilled and communicates clearly and in terms a lay-person can understand.
