The office staff does not care!
On the morning of 10/27/22, I was suffering from urinary retention. I called the office around 10:00am and was told that someone would call me back. I called back at 4:00pm because no one called me and I knew the office closed at 5:00pm. I was assured that someone would call me back after they finished with patients. Still no call. I called them back at 9:00am Friday, 10/28/22. I was told that the doctors were out of the office all day and that I should go to the ER. I was in severe pain and hope I do not have residual kidney damage because of the pressure from an over distended bladder. DR. PUROHIT'S OFFICE COULD HAVE/SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT THE DAY BEFORE. The following Monday morning, 10/31/22 I called to schedule an appointment. Again I was told that someone would call me back. To this day December 31, 2022, I have yet to get a call back to schedule an appointment. I have since moved on to another physician. I do not recommend.

Staff will not input pre-authorization for meds
I have no issue with Dr. Purohit, but staff will not do a pre-authorization for testosterone prescription. This means my insurance WILL NOT reimburse me for cost. I was told by nurse they don't have the "manpower" to input pre-authorizations. Very disappointing, my insurance company said they never heard of anything like that before. First question I asked when making next appointment at another urology clinic, do they do pre-authorization for testosterone?

Fantastic Dr
Very thorough, kind and compassionate. Saw us in a timely manner and the exam and plan of care were carried out in a manner that we could understand. Wait time for a new patient visit wasn’t bad either!

Does not explain condition or treatment just does “something”. Very frustrating experience would not return

Dr. Purohit (son) has done my follow ups after surgery at Tulane and also performed a surgery on me. I've had nothing but the best care from him and his staff and I'd highly recommend him to anybody.

Dr.Purohit is an excellent urologist. My husband had BPH and he had Greenlight Laser TURP. He saved my husbands life even though we had other health issues at the same time. I would highly reccomend him. He's personable and an excellent surgeon!

I've been seeing Jimmy Till, NP. He is very knowledgeable and understanding of my symptoms. Went the extra mile to help get insurance company to help cover the cost of my prescription.

Dr. Purohit (nicknamed baby Purohit after his Dad) saved my life. I love his bedside manner and the time he takes with me during the office visit. When I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in the hospital, Dr. Purohit immediately began seeing me and explained everything going on. He removed my bad kidney quickly and I feel much better on the road to recovery.

Dr. Sunil (younger son) was absolutely great. He helped me with my kidney stones and even personally followed up with me twice on my cell phone since leaving his office 2 weeks ago to see how I was doing. He didn't rush me during the doctor visit and I highly recommend him.

The response to my pharmacy's request for refills of prescriptions has been horrible. There have been no communication by Dr. Purohit's office with my pharmacy in weeks despite their requests. When I called about the issue a nurse left a message indicating the prescription would be authorized. It never was. I wrote a letter inquiring about the situation. There was no response whatsoever to my letter. I will drop Dr. Sunhil Purohit for a better run office.

I had a vasectomy performed in July of 2013. Was not covered by my insurance so I had to pay out of pocket. No problem. I was given a price and paid in full. It's now July of 2015 and I am still being hounded for a balance that was already paid. Incompetence.
