One Star

Dr. told my Father-in law he needed surgery and at 88 years old he had a hard time understanding what it would accomplish. He told him to speak top his daughter about it.....never called her. I called and could only get an answer by having his regular doctors office call so I could speak to office manager. Explained what I needed and was told by Brian that the doctor would call. Guess what ? NO CALL!! This is an 88 year old man who the night before just lost his wife of 60 plus years and we want to make sure his care is kept up. Is one stinking call too much to ask for ???

Very Good Urologist

I had seen another urologist for years who I liked but found Dr T to be more engaging and informative. He was late but that is attributable to electronic med records being initiated. He apologized for the delay which was no problem since he gave me a lot of time and provided excellent care

Agree with so many others

My husband was referred to him from another doctor - after his bladder was torn during surgery. Always running late and seems to not have the time to just talk. He needs to understand that these people are in pain and are looking at him for relief. Sooooo many times we hear "I understand". He really does not. My husband had to have surgery and it was like "pulling teeth" to get it fit into his schedule. My husband was is horrible pain and Dr.T did not seem to really understand. Finally got the surgery and guess what -- it did not take. I too would not recommend this doctor.......and as others have said....hospital visits during his stay...totally not there. To end this..he finally has recommended that my husband go to Penn and even this he and his offic staff have totally taken their good old time with...no clear communication ...I finally had to call Penn and inquire...one more thing...dont call after hours ..you will feel like you get a response as if you called him from a high stakes poker game.
