Dr. Figlesthaler and his staff are great. My husband called his office on a Friday afternoon. He saw me right away . Took his time and helped me through my issue.

Both Dr Tsai and Dr Figlesthaler properly diagnosed and treated my prostate cancer. Their expert and professional approach made it an easy choice to robotically remove my prostate. Dr Figlesthaler was an excellent skilled surgeon which left me cancer free and reduced my recovery time. I sincerely appreciate Dr Figlesthaler. Thanks Richard Slama

Dr. Figlesthaler did what no other doctor has been able to do for me-fix the problem. His positive 'can do' attitude and up to date knowledge of options available, make him a great great choice. Do not overlook seeing this doctor.

Dr. Figlesthaler My visit was a checkup after I had a UroLift with another doctor in another state. The doctor was very thorough and allowed me to see the cystoscopy on screen. I like to know the details of what is happening to me. I like a surgeon that tries non-invasive treatment first. I found the doctor and his PA very easy to talk very frankly about my questions. I highly recommend this doctor and his PA . I am a Florida snowbird and Dr. Figlesthaler in now my primary Urologist.

I was treated for prostate enlargement. A TURP was performed. For four months I had blood in my urine and there was often discomfort when urinating. Each appointment I was told that it would get better, that I would heal. In the 4th month with the condition still the same, Dr Figlesthaler told me he didn't want to see me for another 4 months. I asked several times that he verify this and he did. It was beyond my comprehension that he dismissed me without an explanation.

If you are looking for a knowledgeable and empathetic doctor, you'll be pleased to be in the care of doctor Figlesthaler and his office/ medical staff. Doctor Figlesthaler successfully repaired a ureteral injury that I sustained during a total laparoscopic hysterectomy performed by a different doctor. Doctor Figlesthaler will answer my questions, and explain the course of treatment and procedures before performing them. I highly recommend doctor Figlesthaler.

I was recently introduced to Dr. Figlesthaler by a special friend of mine and a long time patient. I shared with this individual that I'm a 62 year male that is dearly seeking a Urology Specialists that meets with a perfectionists expectations: 1. Extremely intelligent. 2. An articulate listener with a sincere passion to professionally answer all questions. 3. When one is with the doctor it's really nice to know his absolute full concentration is on you. 5. Office Team/Off.=Best of Class!

Dr. Figlesthaler's course of treatment which included vaginal sling surgery for bladder prolapse improved my quality of life 100%. He reviewed the options before me and kept me informed as we proceeded. I am so grateful for his abilities, professionalism, and the enthusiasm he shows for helping his patients.

The best overall experience I've ever had with a medical facility, staff and doctor. Everyone (staff) is very pleasant, helpful and kind. The waiting room, patient rooms, bathroom, hallways, etc., are the cleanest I've ever been in. I'm a 60 year old female with incontinence and I had the sling procedure done. Excellent process! No pain! Highly recommend. Doctor Figlesthaler is very concerned about your needs/questions and a wonderfully experienced and nice doctor.

I found Dr. Figlesthaler & his staff to be excellent in all respects. I had actually come to him for a second opinion. He examined me, ran an evaluative test, & explained my condition & my options. I was a bit uneasy about surgery (even minor surgery); however, he spent a great deal of time explaining everything to me in terms that I found easy to understand. I had the surgery, & everything turned out perfectly. His staff treated me like family; always positive, upbeat, & enthusiastic. Great job

I have been going to several Doctors specializing in Urology over the past 4 years. All doctors said that my enlarged prostate is normal for a man my age and that the only thing they could do is watch the PSA level. Dr. Figlesthaler is the best urologist! No doubt I strongly recommend him. He is the ultimate professional that cares for his patients. Now frequent urination is a thing of the past with very few side effects and the prostate still fully functional.
