Highly recommend a second opinion if you see Dr Horchak

I'm not one to wright public reviews but if this saves another family from going through what my family experienced it's all worth it. Dr Horchak was a friendly enough guy when he wasn't being arrogant, inappropriate or rude. He didn't accurately document after his initial appointment and was unsure of exact location therefore he reported different information after surgery. He downplayed any of our questions or concerns saying "people live for a long time with the diagnosis and he should worry more about the other family member who has cancer". It turns out we got a second opinion from a world renown bladder surgeon and we were shocked at the amount of cancer that remained in his bladder after the initial surgery which was one month prior. He later had multiple medical complications requiring surgery and hospitalization because of the location of the tumor. Turns out it was much more than "a simple surgery". Thankfully, the second opinion prevented my family member from having a lifetime of complications. We are happy to report he's been cancer free for over 1 year!! My recommendation: ask the right questions and if you feel uneasy please seek out a second opinion...it could save your loved ones life!

Happy getting-older guy

Dr. Horchak has been a wonderful physician for me. I had some 'getting older" issues that he was empathetic about, and helpful with suggestions and treatment options, and I had a high PSA scare that indicated a biopsy was needed to be sure. He was thorough and efficient, and was open in his communications and follow up. He really is a great listener and cares.

Dr. Horchak is an excellent doctor. I suffered with bladder problems for years. I was misdignosed and had no relief until I found this doctor. My bladder surgery was a success and I am so thankful to him. His staff was great and he took the time to listen.
