An excellent doctor, very knowledgeable in his field, and very easy to talk to. He explained all the options for my husband’s prostate cancer in terms simple enough to understand, and he listened and responded to all our concerns.

Look no further for a urological surgeon. Dr Bhayani is no-nonsense and shoots straight from the hip. And, as busy as he is, he takes time to answer every single question. I had a left nephrectomy for kidney cancer 5 years ago. Dr Bhayani is always upfront on every question I ask him. Post-op, his staff, especially Lisa Vollmeyer, was there to forward any questions to the doctor. His team cares about a successful outcome. If I could give him 6 starts I would!

What words can a man use to thank the person who saved their life. Dr. Bhayani is a kind and caring man. His confidence in his God given abilities is evident from the beginning and yet it is tempered with great humility. The best gift I could give to him is to pray that God give him strength, supernatural knowledge....that the God of Jesus Christ prosper him in all that he does and give him the desires of his heart. Truly a great and wonderful man. My eternal thanks. Jeffrey L Petrini

During my treatment and surgery for Kidney Cancer, I quickly discovered why Dr. Bhayani is recognized as one of the best in his field. He is an excellent surgeon, readily available to his patients, and compassionate. He provides excellent care and demands the same from everyone involved in caring for his patients. I am absolutely certain I had the best surgeon, team, and hospital for my care. I highly recommend Dr. Bhayani. You owe it to yourself to meet with him. He is the best!

Dr. Bhayani is aggressive in dealing with cancer. He is very concerned about his patients. While dealing with very serious issues, Dr. Bhayani can be funny and reassuring in a special way. His personal recall of your situation is phenomenal and bedside manner incomparable. My experience with kidney cancer has been tolerable because of the confidence I have in my doctor. I had kidney cancer 3 yrs ago. Dr. Bhayani is still aggressive in my follow-up treatment for which I am thankful.

Excellent surgeon; performed robotic kidney surgery flawlessly. His confident and reassuring manner was helpful in assuaging my and my family's concerns. He was appropriate in his comments and post operative presence. I could not have asked for a better experience than what he provided. His direction of hospital and staff was professional and showed evidence that he is held in high regard by his peers and other medical associates.
