Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
This is Dr. Chuang responding to the 03/11/16 review.
We appreciate your feedback and because you placed the same review on different sites, we will respond with the same reply. Varicoceles are fairly common, occurring in about 10 to 15% of the general population. However, several recent studies indicate that the incidence of varicoceles is inversely related to BMI, meaning that as BMI goes up, the incidence of varicoceles goes down. Furthermore, the majority of varicoceles do NOT hurt. Varicocele surgery is a straightforward procedure in experienced hands, but determining that a varicocele is the source of a patient's testicular pain is not so simple as there are many causes of testicular pain. A detailed exam and testing is important to most accurately determine the cause of and treatment for testicular pain, instead of rushing to do surgery. I wish you the best of luck!
