Very poor care and unstable Doctor

My husband was very I'll with a kidney stone with retintion. Hospital put in catheter. Was referred by hospital. First apt went ok. Doctor seems not all there. Was told by doctor he didn't have any creditionals at any hospital and could not do any surgery or procedures. He couldn't even remove my husband's catheter. He told me how to do it. Didn't feel comfortable doing it so we had to go to are family doctor. We had a follow up apt at 1:30 the next day. We lived 45 min from doctors office. I left work at 12:30 got home late and drove like a mad woman to get him there. When we made it on time there was a note on the office door stating the doctor was out for the day. We never got a phone call telling us to reschedule. The doctor charges $65 for no show or no call apt. I feel he owns us $65! This doctor is very flaky. Gave my husband the wrong meds. Confirmed by are family doctor and basically left my husband still ill. I will be reporting him to state boards and my insurance company. Save your time and piece of mind go to another urologist!

I had a surgery in office, horrible experience bedside manner were not good at all. Dr. Fightlin was yelling to me, to not move although i was going thru pain. He was banging on the door because one his assistant forgot a tool for the procedure. The procedure took 3 times as long. I wouldn't recommend him at all.
