Urology medical specialists

Urology

Urology and urologists deal mainly with the bladder, urethra and kidney. However, the specialty ultimately involves the entire body because these organs affect many functions and cause serious quality of life issues when they don't work well.

While many surgeons sing the praises of robotic surgery, some say it’s no better than traditional surgical options, despite a higher price tag.

To varying degrees, experts say, prostate cancer treatment affects sexual function in most men, including inhibiting ejaculation, diminishing libido and causing erectile dysfunction.

It went very well. The Doctor did a good job and explained the result . Doctor is very friendly and easy to talk to. I never feel rushed with this Doctor. However I do have some concerns about a problem that developed later. The Doctor did not seem to be included in the loop to take care of my problem. At first the staff did not handle the problem well. On the second attempt it was better and the way it should have been the first time.

I would say I felt like I was talking to a used car salesman. He really did not do a good job of explaining my siituation and the procedure that he was going to use. He made is sound like I had to be operated on as soon as possible. However other Doctors felt me condition was serious but not that serious.

.Dr.
Montville Urologists Provider Name Locked
is perhaps one of the finest physicians I have ever encountered. he has an outstanding bedside manner. He is knowledgeable, personable, friendly, and caring. During my appointments I have his undivided attention and it is evident that he is personally concerned about my well being. I don't know too many urologists I have seen where I can honestly say that I look forward to my appointment. Staff there are friendly and caring as well. Again, not too many folks can say that they enjoy going to a urologist, but I highly recommend this practice.

the procedure went well. Dr.

has been my urologist for some time. He was my first urologist when I lived in Orangeburg and when I returned to Orangeburg, I went back to him. Love his sense of humor. The nursing staff is outstanding including the office staff as well. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Went very bad. He "sold" me on the Green Light procedure to be done in his office. After several tests/evalustion sessions and his "complete" explanation of the procedure and expections, I elected to have it done. In the recovery, his nurse "barked" a bunch of instructions at me. The Dr. and the Anest. were already working on the next patient in the next room. I had some trouble immediately complying with her instructions because of the type of bench he used (old and obviously not for this type of surgery/recovery). So the 1 hour procedure took six. Then started the problems. I was having trouble in healing. Every time I went back to the Dr, I was told I was "technically ok." But I felt like sh?t. I had several- maybe 3 urinary infections. The doc then told me that "about 25% of the patients have some sort of problem." Nice to know now. After 5 months, I was having blocking in my bladder. The Dr did another surgery- this time at an outpatient center. That fixed the problem, and I am fine now. In retrospect, I think the Doc liked the technology/procedure and did not understand patient recovery. He was concerned about that like a deer in the headlights. Not a clue. don't use him unless you are a do-it-yourselfer!

arrived at my room within 10 minutes of me being in there. For the first several minutes, we just talked with him asking about any problems I was having now or had experienced in the past. After our discussion of my health history, he did a prostate check. Afterwards, he sent me to another area to have some blood drawn for a PSA test. They do there own tests in house without having to send off to an outside lab. My experience with Dr.

Dr. Habermacher is great. I was extremely uneasy about my procedure but he made the entire process so easy. His bedside manner is the best I have seen and I highly recommend him. We talked throughout the entire process as if we had been friends for years. Everything went the way he said it would, took the amount of time he said it would and overall just a great experience, considering!
