comprehensive

Dr. Stokes has been my Urologist for about 8 or10 years. He is excellent at communicating with me. I always feel secure in my understanding of the issue and treatment. I say he is comprehensive because, rather than focusing narrowly on just the presenting urological issue, he looks at the whole person and how other issues affect the urological problem.

Extremely poor communication skills with patient and family

Clueless and uncaring office staff. Dr. Stokes does not provide adequate information to the families of elderly patients. Will not return phone calls. Choose ANY other doctor. Ratings do not even deserve 1 star!

Very good communication skills. Takes time to explain in detail. He even drew a picture. Made my 84 year old mother very comfortable about surgery!

MY EXPERIENCE

THE OFFICE SCHEDULE IS OVERBOOKED RESULTING IN LONG WAIT TIMES. WHENEVER CALLING THE OFFICE, YOU NORMALLY GET A VOICE MAIL WHICH IN SOME CASES IS NOT RETURNED WITHIN 24 HOURS. IT'S VERY RARE THAT YOU GET TO TALK TO A REAL LIVE PERSON. THE WAIT TIME FROM WHEN YOU GET IN THE EXAM ROOM AND WHEN YOU SEE THE DOCTOR IS EXCESSIVE AND UNCOMFORTABLE.

One Star

My overall experience with this doctor and his staff was poor. An initial diagnosis was completely wrong. He promised to set up referral appointments with 2 other doctors and call me. After 2 weeks I call and find nothing has been done. His office promises to forward test results to another surgeon. After a 2 hour drive to discuss these test results with the surgeon, I find they were never sent. His office is frequently closed and it takes an average of 5 calls to get to speak to a real person. When you're diagnosed with cancer, you want everything to go as smoothly as possible. That certainly didn't happen in my case.
