Unfortunately I was not able to see amy Dr at Palmetto Urology. It took month to get an appointment that the moved without asking if it would work for me. When I did go the front desk receptionist was so unbelievably rude I left.

Excellent Physician

5 years ago, I walked into Dr. Smith's office with a diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma. He was honest, forth coming and had a plan of action in a short time. Surgery was tough, he was encouraging, He and the office staff were my cheerleaders. Could not ask for more.
