Doesn't Listen

Got charged for 2 lab tests ($1,580 to insurance) even after telling this guy I did not want or need the lab tests. Only wanted CT scan which I did get that confirmed I did not have a kidney stone which I have had problems with in the recent past. He did not want to hear about my stone issues. He only wanted to talk about the bladder cancer I might have. I wasn't concerned about bladder cancer - only a stone. Went through all the bladder cancer routine with old urologist a fer months earlier. Got given expensive lab tests for bladder cancer anyway. He even wanted to look at my bladder for cancer. An uncomfortable and expensive procedure. I declined when they tried to schedule an appointment. If you do not want to be charged for lab tests you do not need, do not give this guy your urine, even if he insists. Went back to old urologist even though she is now out of network and more costly for me to see. Apparently this guy knows everything and his patients know nothing. Never want to see this guy again. Staff and physicians assistant were awesome.

Great

1 out of 6 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, I was one of them , my PSA was 22, Gleason score 3+4=7 a fast growing cancer. Out of all the options I had about my prostate cancer I choose High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) It's NOT allowed in the USA because the FDA has not allowed it even though its been practiced around the world for the pasted 15 yrs. DR. Pugach was my doctor that preformed the procedure on me, I was on my feet within the hour right after it was done.

Five Stars

I had a lot of apprehension to have a vasectomy. After consulting with Dr. Pugach, I felt comfortable due to his experience and knowledge to do the no needle, no scalpel. I was nervous on the day of the procedure, but it turned out to be great experience and I am really glad I did it. I would highly recommend it.
