Best Doctor a patient could ask for

After having a serious abdominal surgery for cancer in Indiana I developed a lymphatic leak and terrible swelling in my abdomen and back. Nobody in the ER or attending physicians was any help to my wife and I and frankly acted like they didn't care. Dr. Bare was already my urologist and contacted my wife on his personal time and when he came on shift everything began to change because of his care. He was professional and also caring and coordinated with Indianapolis about my drastic condition after an RPLND. I highly recommend him for any and all urological needs.
