Blamed me for her being an hour late

Waited an hr fir my appt and no one told me Dr Hader was running late. Then 35 min in the exam room still waiting. Told the nurse I had to leave at a certain time. She thought I was bluffing--I wasn't and left when still no exam. Left a note to contact me and she didnt. Three days later spoke to the office mgr who arranged for an early appt. went today and Dr Hader accused me of leaving the last one too soon and blamed me for her having to come in early today --even tho it was to correct her poor svc. So I left again without seeing her. Clearly we're not going to work well if she takes no accountability for her time, has no respect for mine, and thinks hers is more important than mine.

Friendly, Understanding & Knowledgeable

I met Dr Joan Hader today for the first time. I had previously seen a different urologist here in Atlanta (at a different practice) and had a HORRIBLE experience. I was in search of a new urologist and found Dr Hader. She was WONDERFUL. She was friendly and understanding. She listened to all my complaints and answered all my questions. She did not make me feel like any of my questions were silly (unlike my previous urologist). She ran tests on me today to help determine the cause of all my recurring infections and sent me home with a plan of action that was feasible. Her staff was also VERY courteous and kind. Dr Hader did not make me feel rushed and took her time talking with me and examining me. I would 100% recommend her. My ONLY complaint was that I had to wait about 45 minutes to even see her.
