Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.

Dr Brian Fingado provided the highest outstanding Professional Orthopedic care, treatment and personal attention experienced by my wife o her first wrist fracture consultation. The detailed radiograph analysis, explanations and options for treatment for healing was very impressive. Dr Fingado is kind, gentle and patient. The five star rating also includes the awesome staff, from Adam who performed the cast on the left wrist and forearm, to the Nurse from Trinidad, the friendly reception ladies and the respectful attitude shown to us. There was zero wait time with call-in from the waiting room on the minute of the appointment, once first time new patient the paperwork was submitted. Without doubt, this is n extremely busy Orthopedic hospital, that runs smoothly due to the efficient and well coordinated staff. All kudos to a Par excellence Holy Cross Medical Group.
Dr. Fingado listens to his patients to help provide the best and most accurate medical care. I never felt rushed during a visit and he carefully explained the problems I had and how to best treat the situation. He also recommended alternatives to the way I was excercising to prevent future injuries..
I waited 1 1/4 hours to be greeted by Barbara who had a scowl on her face and I asked having a bad day? She said no... I said well I waited over an hour. She said well the X-ray machines were on the blink, I said well it would be nice to know, she said she told the front desk that if I we t up to ask they would have told me, they weren't going to announce it??? The nurse that took my BP was so sweet Janice, I told her, and she said... Yes I hear that a lot... The doctor is wonderful if you can get through the unhappy people that work there... The X-ray technician, the front desk... I guess it becomes acceptable behavior... No one wants to take a stand on good customer service
