Dr
attempted to perform a
replacement on both my husband's ureters in the UroSurgery Center on
Blvd. The procedure started at 10 am and an hour later Dr
came out and told me he was done but was unable to replace the stents and would send us to the hospital outpatient interventional radiology the next day for the replacements to be done. I waited in the outer waiting room until around 1 pm because I was told there was not enough room in the recovery room for patients' family member to go back with the patient. At 3 pm, I was becoming very anxious and asked to speak with his nurse. She called on the waiting room phone and informed me that my husband was "having a lot of pain" and had to be given extra narcotics. I asked to come back to be with him and she said there was no room. Even more upset by 4:00 pm, I was told that though the Center closes at 4:30, the staff stays "as long as necessary" to see that the patient is taken care of. I had to bang on the glass window at the reception desk to get anyone to become visible. A nurse then came to the (locked) door and told me that I could go back in the recovery room "soon", and that there certainly was room enough, but that my husband's nurse was afraid I would get upset when I saw him. I went straightway to his room, where I found my husband moaning and talking "gibberish" as if he had had a stroke (I have a degree in nursing). Dr
called me from elsewhere on my cellphone and told me I should take my husband home and bring him to Methodist Germantown the next day. I insisted that my husband be taken in an ambulance immediately to the hospital, to which Dr
responded, "I can't justify sending him to a hospital in an ambulance." Obviously the man had no clue what was happening with my husband and there was no anesthesiologist or other MD on the premises. I prevailed upon the scared-to-death nurse to convince Dr
that my husband was truly in serious trouble. The result was an ambulance ride to the hospital, where personnel did not find transfer records and did not have a clue what was going on. By the time my husband was placed in a private room upstairs, I realized he was not going to make it without a lot of help. The nurse on the floor was very cavalier about his condition so I insisted on calling in all personnel I could think of. A wonderful nurse practitioner came to the room and never left my side for 3 hours. The result was ECG, CT scans and oxygen, plus a move to the Intensive Care Unit. My husband had to be placed on dialysis for 2 days and suffered unbelievable pain. The hospitalist came in and talked with me about whether he would want resuscitation or not and/or a ventilator. My husband was one step away from being placed on a ventilator when he rallied. He has a strong constitution and will to live or he wouldn't be recovering today. Oh, yes, Dr
's last words to me on my cellphone when my husband was in dire straits after being moved from the ER to his original private room were, "Mrs. _, this is NOT an emergency." The lack of concern is inexcusable. Patients deserve far better treatment than what my husband experienced.

After my initial appointment I had very bad experience with this physician's front staff being very rude and unresponsive to an issue I had. After complaining to the office manager, he and the doctor's nurse worked with me to fix the situation and make me comfortable that I would never have the same problem again.
Dr.
performed the actual procedure I needed for a diagnosis of my condition with no side effects. However, I am the type of person who wants to feel very involved in the treatment plan and I didn't feel like Dr.
was able to communicate this information to my satisfaction. I found another urologist who helped me understand my diagnosis and treatment plan and makes me feel like I am involved in my medical decisions. I do think that Dr.
is a great doctor but I don't think his style of patient care was a good fit for me.
