My husband has vascular dementia, but Poffenberg thinks he is capable to making a decision on his own. It took SEVEN MONTHS w painters tape on the floor to find the bathroom

Very Erratic

Always ready to perform yet another procedure, which usually turned out to not have been necessary but always very billable. Undependable scheduling of appointments, yet unwilling to deal with patient needs (refills, for example) except during office visits. , Pleasant manner, but I stronglysuggest finding a more dependable, more patient-centered urologist
