If you are looking for a doctor who cares and is able to utilize the latest technology to diagnose your symptoms go see Dr. Linehan. She is the best at what she does, compassionate, intelligent and caring. I’m thankful and blessed to have her as my doctor.
Dr. Linehan is the best doctor I have ever encountered. She takes time to talk to you about your diagnosis and does it in a way you understand. I trusted her with my life and would do so again in a heartbeat.
Dr. Timothy Wilson is the finest surgeon I have ever met. He’s considered an expert by his peers, a gifted surgeon by his colleagues and a humble doctor by his patients.
Dr. Wilson cured the prostate cancer. His hands are angelic and he’s a complete gentleman. He has great bedside manners and has a lot of patience and answers all your questions.
Dr. Twardowski is probably the best doctor I have ever had. He is also one of the nicest people I know. I am delighted he is my Urologist!
I went to see Dr. Movassaghi for a men’s health checkup. I never felt rushed and I felt like there was a lot of good attention and thoughtful analysis on me, the patient. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Movassaghi is the most compassionate, thorough, intelligent and caring doctor we have encountered. Although he is a surgeon, it seems the last thing he wants for you (the patient) is surgery. He discusses all aspects of every procedure before going forward. Technically, he is brilliant, but equally important is his care and compassion.
Dr. Kelly is wonderful. He allows enough time to explain what is happening and listens to the patient. He considers what is best for the person in front of him. He offers different options to consider if there are areas that can be handled in a different way.
