Great Doctor!

Approximately 5 years ago I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and I was fortunate enough to be referred to Dr. Darlin as my Urologist. Dr. Darlin performed surgery to remove the cancerous cells and I can not be more pleased with the results. I have a cystoscopy done every 6 months and I am happy to say that I have been cancer free for all these years. I have found Dr. Darlin to be not only a great surgeon but also a very caring person. I feel he has empathy towards his patients and goes out of his way to make a very uncomfortable procedure as easy as possible. Any person needing a Urologist would be well served to have Dr. Darlin as his doctor.
