What People Say About Dr. William Naftel, MD
Reply
My father is unhappy with his care but being elderly he likely needed some hand holding during his visits. He had a bladder tumor and prostate removed, felt he was handled like "a slab of meat" (his words) and after recovery was given hormone therapy. His PSA elevated and instead of suggesting alternate treatments, my father was told, somewhat suddenly in his opinion, that he had 6 months left to live. He feels the doctor didn't answer his questions, might have offered alternative options earlier, and his bedside manner was lacking. He refuses to return to see him, and does not get his calls returned. I'm sure there could be an alternate point of view, but this is the point of view of his patient, which is the one that matters, isn't it? He feels abandoned and left hung out to dry. He has lived 2 years past his surgery. Whether this is average or not I cannot say. But ask questions and don't leave without answers. It's your life.
