My experience with Dr. Messing, from start to finish, was disappointing. The worst experience was a prostate biopsy. He apparently didn't use any numbing agent. I could feel the long needle going all the way into the prostate each and every one of the 10 or so explorations. It was an agonizing experinece, and I shudder years after just thinking about it. It was absolutely unnecessary. I had a prostate biopsy done by a different physician years before with no significant discomfort. When I asked a physician's assistant for one of Messing's colleagues about my experience, she said that he pobably didn't want to take the time to wait for the numbing agent to work.

Dr.Messing is all business and that is highly desirable in a cancer doctor.He is very caring but shows it in his skill as a doctor rather than in displays of emotion.I would very highly recommend him,and his PA Maurine.

I have always been seen for scheduled appointments, the only time I have waited if the doctor is is late from surgey, he runs a tight ship. I was lucky he accepted my case.

Performed a very difficult removal of cancerous kidney and after 4 years I am still alive. The cancer had metastisized out of the kidney into the first line of lymph nodes. Prognosis was not good. Great surgeon.
