Dr.Serels was terrific. The office is set-up really well for COV-19. I felt safe and comfortable with Dr.Serels and his staff. The office was very clean and everyone had masks on at all times. Dr. Serels is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He listened and developed a treatment plan for my issue. I would highly recommend Dr Serels!

Dr. Serels is truly an amazing Doctor. He has helped me with my kidney stones and complications resulting from another Urologist. He took the time to listen to my issues and previous problems. Dr. Serels cares about his patients and does not rush your appt. He wants to fully understand the issue and get to the bottom of the problem. I am so happy I found Dr. Serels!

Dr.Serels is a caring and compassionate doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients. I have been to many doctors over the last 5 years and very few compare to Dr. Serels keen interest in his parents’ health. We reviewed my concerns, pains and previous treatment. Dr.Serels was honest with me and shared his thoughts and concerns. He gave me options and opinions as to next steps. Dr. serels is truly an expert and has a fantastic bedside manner. I know I am in good hands and he will help me through this process.

Dr. Serels is good: patient, really listens. Unfortunately, I experienced very long wait times in crowded wait rooms (where it seemed every seat was occupied). I also experienced repeated difficulty with scheduling appointments and procedures. After trying relentlessly for 3 weeks to get an appointment for a procedure (phoning, leaving messages, speaking to other staff), I left the practice and went to another one where I have none of these scheduling issues.

I have had a cystoscopy, laser lithotripsy and shock wave lithotripsy for kidney stones in the last 15-18 months with Dr. Serels. Each time, he was cautious before recommending these procedures, and he clearly explained each. I particularly like his calm manner, the way he really listens to his patient. and treats one respectfully, and his expertise, of course! On my last visit for an ultrasound, I want to commend Elizabeth, who cheerfully and efficiently checked me in!

Dr. Serels and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. I've only been in his care for a few months and I have found him to be kind,patient and professional. I never feel I'm being rushed (and I always have questions). His office staff is friendly and accommodating. Calls are returned and follow up questions answered in a timely manner. (Thank you Ann & Terri.) And the nurses I've met put me at ease. I feel I am getting wonderful care, advice and treatment. Thank yo

I have been to multiple doctors to try and figure out my lower pelvic pain. I felt like Dr Serels is the first doctor who really listened to what I had to say. He asked questions and together we discussed a possible treatment plan that I felt comfortable with. He took my feelings into account. His nurse was extremely pleasant and his office staff was very accommodating. Their office space may not be the most modern but the level of care certainly makes up for it.

Dr. Serels is very patient and explains in detail what your health issue is in layman's terms. He gives each patient all the time the patient needs and answers all of your questions. He is a kind gentleman and understands all of his patients' needs. He will first do any examination, that needs to be done, in the office. If not he will do a procedure that is required at a surgical center.

Dr. Serels met me for the second time last week and I have to comment that he was exceptional. He really understood bladder prolapse and incontinence. He was able to diagnose a problem that was complicated. He has a great bedside manner and knows to deal with a sensitive subject. I am so glad I went to him to treat my problems! I feel very confident he can correct the issues I have had for a long time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Serels since 2010. After becoming a quadriplegic in 2009, i had endless UTI's, the cause of which he was able to identify and resolve. Since then, I see him every five weeks, more if there is an issue. Technically, he is amazing, both in the hospital and at the office. Both he and his staff are courteous and efficient, but both are overworked. Be patient, they will get to you and take care of you and you'll be happy you waited. I highly recommend him.

I had a few problems -- 1) the doctor went away on vacation the day after I had my first visit and there was a problem. Only THEN did I hear there was NO ONE covering for him while he was away. 2) I had over an hour wait for my 2nd component of testing booked. 3) I have a robust BCBS insurance plan YET they use an OUT OF NETWORK lab? The fees were outrageous. I will NEVER return and expect I will be dealing with the billing team for a horribly long time.

Dr. Serels is an excellent doctor with the absolute worst support staff ever. His receptionist is snotty and condescending beyond belief. She truly treats you like a number and a copay check. If Dr. Serels were not as good as he is, I would definitely change practices. As it is, I delay my visits as long as possible because even making the appointment is an unpleasant experience. If you have another urologist as an option, go there. Avoiding the office staff at this office will be worth it!

Office is very disorganized and rude. I had made an appointment for an ultra sound and then to meet with the Dr. and apparently they switched it on me without telling me. When I arrived they were very rude and told me I was no longer meeting with the Dr but rather his assistant and that I was an hour early to the appt. I did finally meet with the Dr (after an hour wait) and he could not be bothered but wanted me to sign a waiver to have surgery.

Dr. Serels office is very unorganized. Msgs are left early in the a.m., and unanswered. No one returns your calls for lab results or from your msg that you left at 8:30 a.m. You have to constantly followup with the office. The lab and patient rooms rooms are not clean. He would rather you come in for visits to make lots of $$$$. Patient Care is 0 to none. Look for another Urologist!
