Dr. Poonamllee may be the best urologist treating prostatectomy related ED in Northern California. I've met with urologists from UCD, Sutter, and Mercy in Sacramento and UCSF in San Francisco. Dr Poonamallee is the most knowlegable in the frustrations that ED sufferers face and the solutions to individual problems. I'm gratefull that I fianlly crossed paths with Dr. P - he knows the score about ED. My sexual performance is significantly improved.

I believe uday Poonamallee to be a danger to his patients. I believe he abuses any trust you give him. He performed a number of surgical procedures on me and his colleagues told me that the surgeries were unnecessary and had Uday Poonamallee continued to go unchecked he would have destroyed my kidney function. Based on what I was told by his colleagues it became clear to me that Uday Poonamallee is willing to maim injure and destroy the quality of life of his patients for money.

I spent over a year seeing Dr. Poonamallee. There didn't seem to be any urgency even though I routinely communicated about the profound pain and quality of life issues. Every steps was piece meal across a year of agony. Worse of all, there was a persistent hesitation or perhaps confusion about my condition. As if I was the first man he's ever treated with my condition. I had a fine relationship with Dr. Poonamallee, but after a year I sought a new Urologist - best decision ever.

Great doctor.

If your a male and suffer from Peroyne's go see Dr. Poonamallee. Dr. P. was the second Dr. I saw for my condition as the first Urologist said basically live with it. Dr. Poonamallee conducted out patient surgery on me i.e. Nesbitt Procedure and the end result was perfect. Bit of post surgical discomfort but that was to be expected.

I would strongly discourage anyone from even considering this doctor! I had been to the Mercy Hospital ER twice this week due to the excruciating pain, and the attending doctor at ER called Dr. Poonamallee personally to explain the urgency of my case, recommending that he see me at the earliest to diagnose my condition. In spite of the ER doctor reaching out to him, Dr. Poonamallee's discourteous, callous and indifferent staff have YET to even grant me an appointment to see him!
in Folsom, CA |
I think Dr. Poonamallee needs some training in patient empathy. It is also distressing that calls go unreturned and test results are not reported by him to patients (at least me).
in Sacramento, CA |
I had a great outcome from Dr. Poonamalee's surgery. I would definitely recommend him.
