Treated me for bladder cancer. Although a bit stand-offish at first, he’s a very personable and funny guy. Answers all your questions and makes you feel as if you’re the only patient he has while he’s with you. Hopefully you have no need to see a urologist but if you do I highly recommend Dr. D!

Dare I say I enjoyed my vasectomy? Easy to talk to, bedside manor was perfect for me. He kept me talking the entire time, mind occupied & mouth busy. He feigned interest in everything about me, just to keep me preoccupied mentally. It worked like a charm, and I am grateful. He said, “Hope to never have to see you again.” This part hurt a bit, as I thought we had a real friendship bond, especially after what we just went through together. Thanks for the positive medical experience Dr. Desperito.

Dr. Desperito is very professional while also being compassionate and empathetic. He treated my cancer effectively and with attention to my personal needs. He has always been careful to follow-up with any concerns or questionable results from tests. He explains everything clearly and doesn't rush me through an exam. I hold him in high regard as a knowledgeable and effective doctor and would recommend him without reservation.

I have been going to Dr. Desperito for years I can honestly say he is an excellent physician. He is honest, trustworthy, caring and funny. Every time I see him he puts me at ease and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a urologist. He is a popular doc so be sure to schedule well in advance.
