Best Urologist

Dr. Root and his staff are always compassionate and knowledgeable. I have been a patient for many years now. I did try another doctor but immediately came back to Dr. Root. It is worth the longer drive for me to see him.

This was my first time having a health problem requiring a urologist consult. Dr. Root was very accommodating and made my initial visit pleasant as well as all my follow up visits. I would recommend him and his practice to any who ask.

One Star

Horrible doctor. Terrible bedside manner. Very unresponsive. Had to go office to get results of biopsy that they had sat on for almost 2 weeks. Tried to push unnecessary treatment and became belligerent and spoke disparagingly of the doctor that I suggested I get a second opinion from.

Stones

He gave me no advice on how to reduce kidney stones other than drink lots of water, he did not tell me that a stone could be checked to see its chemical makeup. Also waiting an hour in the waiting room is pointless, then waiting 40 minutes in the exam room. Will not go back.
