Dr Seth Lerner diagnosed and treated my prostate cancer in May,2017. The information Dr Lerner gave me was clear and precise so that there were no surprises throughout the procedure and followup. I am now two years out from the prostatectomy and would recommend Dr Lerner to anyone,including family members looking for competence,professionalism,and results. All the staff in Dr Lerner 's office with whom I came in contact with were uniformly kind and competent. A special thanks to Jackie Gianelli and especially to my anchor throughout Debbie Finateri. God bless all!

My PSA doubled in the past year and Dr. Lerner suggested I have a second test right away and then have a biopsy. It was revealed I was in the early stages of Prostate Cancer. Dr. Lerner lerner explained my options and I decided to to have my prostate removed and I am now cancer free and I am grateful to have DR. Lerner as my urologist I have spoken to many men who have had the same experience and also have Dr. Lerner as their doctor and they are just as happy as I am. Thank You Dr. Lerner!!!

If it wasn't for Dr. Seth Lerner I wouldn’t be participating in this survey! Last June I was diagnosed with a large tumor near my kidney that needed removal ASAP! The W. P. Emerg. room referred us to Dr. Owens. Dr. Owens said there was only one man for this daunting task and that was Dr. Seth Lerner! During our initial consultation with my wife Barbara we noticed tons of NY Yankee Memorabilia in his office. To me this was a very good omen! Turned out we discussed the 1974 NY Yankees with Dr. Lerner. I had no idea what was going to happen, but felt very much at ease! In 1974 the Yanks played their home games at Shea Stadium in Queens that time home of Dr. Lerner. We might have sat next to one other not knowing that our paths would cross in the future. In July when Dr. Lerner extricated a 7lb tumor after I was dubbed watermelon man. Told many friends in Eastchester who turned out to be Dr. Lerner patients as well his reach goes far! Thanks Seth Go Yanks! Tom Hague

Thankfully Dr. Lerner was recommended to me when I had to have my kidney surgery. I could not have asked for a more caring doctor. Dr. Lerner has vast experience and expertise as a surgeon but what distinguishes him is his humanity. From our initial meeting through to the surgery, aftercare and follow-up, Dr. Lerner was attentive, informative and reassuring. He did not delegate any aspect of my care to associates and visited me each day of my hospital stay. I trusted him with my health and my life.

My PSA began to climb outside of the normal range. Dr. Lerner recommended a biopsy to determine why. It came back stating the very early states of Prostate cancer. He explained to me 3 options of treatment and together we determined that Robotic surgery was the best option for me as I am 63 and otherwise in good health. My prostate was removed and I am cancer free with a normal PSA. I can ride a bike again and have the urine flow of a 30 year old. Dr Lerner is a special person. Thanks Dr. Lerner

I was referred to Dr. Lerner after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Dr. Lerner was extremely professional during the entire process. At my initial consultation, he thoroughly explained my options and answered the many questions that I had. After electing robotic radical prostatectomy, I was highly confident in Dr. Lerner’s knowledge and experience with this procedure. He performed the surgery successfully and was provided with excellent after care.

Dr. Lerner is an extraordinary physician who has treated me since 2011. He has cared for me as a son would care for his aging father. I have moved to another state and Dr. Lerner, who is always only an e-mail away, has even helped me in my search for a new urologist. I thank him and my family thanks him for saving my life. Highly recommended!

At the age of 58, my PSA climbed just above the normal range. My internist referred me to Dr Lerner. He did a careful evaluation...biopsy revealed cancer. I was one of the first 100 patients on which he utilized robotic surgery to completely remove my prostate gland. I was out of the hospital in 3 days/back at work in 2 weeks. My PSA has remained undetectable to this day...12 years later. I was always confident in his clinical expertise and genuine concern. Every year I send my gratitude.

Two years ago I switched doctors. I am currently seeing Dr.Seth Lerner. I never realized how important it is to have such faith and trust in a doctor as I do him. I have never written a review but felt it was important because it is so obvious to me at my age that when a doctor has your best interest in mind, it makes you feel that you are in the best of hands. I would highly recommend Dr. Lerner to anyone who is looking for these attributes and I am at ease knowing how well I am being cared for

I met Dr. Lerner 5 years ago when I needed surgery. Initially my family and I had a consultation with Dr . Lerner. During that consultation, Dr. Lerner was soft, warm and gentle, and allowed over 1 hour in order to thoroughly explore my condition and my options for treatment. My level of anxiety was completely assuaged. I remember saying to my family as we started to return home, “That guy can operate on me ANYTIME!!!!!.” My surgery was successful. My follow up care has been a pleasure.
