Very fishy

I'm an RN, so when a physician says to me "you have cancer. There are bladder tumors and you need surgery, immunotherapy (rattled off an acronym) and one chemo instillation. We used to use (unintelligible) and now we use (unintelligible)". This "diagnosis" & "treatment plan" was arrived at after asking about my history, reading a report & (allegedly) looking at the CD of my CT scan, (which was pretty vague and didn't show anything MAJOR), and a "quick see" (less than a minute) via cystoscope. I had a creepy feeling from the get-go....when the male MA (who never bothered to introduce himself) said to me "I'll have the female come in for the prep". Prep? "Oh, lidocaine & betadine. Are you allergic to them?" In walked the receptionist (the female), who stood in the corner while this guy attempted to instill some gel into or near my urethra....which he missed by a mile.) The doctor came in and shoved the scope thru my unanesthesized urethra, looked around for under a minute, then gave me his "opinion" while I was still on the procedure table, draped, with the MA still in the room, tidying up. Neither of them ever washed their hands (before or after they put on gloves.) BTW, the surgi-center he's associated with was supposed to call me to schedule OR time. Never heard from them. I could go on, but suffice it to say, I won't be seeing this doctor again. All of the rush- rush was just too fishy for me. So unprofessional.

lack of attention

Dr. Sethy can be highly qualified specialist. However my appointments with him even after surgery never master for 3 minutes. Dr. Did not care even to listen to my complaints. I.A.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sethi for approx. 8 years. I find him to be very talented and professsional as a Urologist. He is currently the the only Urologist certified to perform the new Rezume prostate procedure.
