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!

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).

I had a great outcome from Dr. Poonamalee's surgery. I would definitely recommend him.
