Just what the doctor ordered for a 17-year-old

Approximately two years ago Dr. Hochman performed surgery on me for a particular condition. As a 17-year-old, this was to be my first surgery so naturally I was somewhat anxious but Dr. Hochman thoroughly described what he would be going to do and went out of his way to put me at ease and I found the overall experience to be more manageable than I originally anticipated. Anyone having issues pertaining to urology, I would highly recommend that they seek out, make an appointment and let the good Dr. do his work! I have recently been experiencing some discomfort that resembles my first symptoms a few years ago and I was informed there would be a possibility of this fairly benign issue reoccurring. I actually have an appointment with him today and I'm looking forward to it, his effortless calming bedside manner and ultimately an answer and course of action that we will discuss. Comparatively to the first round, I am much more at ease and comfortable with whatever direction he takes me. Then again, it could turn out to be nothing at all which would be the best scenario but if not, I know that I am represented by the best

Visit for elderly mother

I found Dr. Hochman and his staff to be extremely professional, very patient and gentle with my aging mother. She was diagnosed immediately and accurately. All procedures and options were explained clearly and questions answered thoroughly and thoughtfully.

Horrible bedside manner. Cold, forceful and devoid of personality.
