Provider relied heavily on what a risk survey determined as my risk rather than his experience. I felt that I was being given more decision making about my treatment than I really wanted. I needed the doctor to tell me what he thought I should do, not what I wanted to do. I had to actually ask him "if you were me, what would YOU do?" Not my idea of helpful.

1st appt. so it's hard to judge his abilities. I can say that the Doctor acted a little frustrated and preoccupied. About what I have no idea. However, "bed side manner" ranks fairly low in my competencies important for a Doctor. More concerned about his ability to solve any health issues I may have.

Dr was one of the most thorough I have had in years. I went in for a second opinion and am strongly considering a change after being with another urologist for years. The other consideration is proximity to home which would be beneficial if I am in need of a procedure which requires a driver in the future. My current Dr is in North Dallas and my spouse does very little driving due to a health condition. Finding alternate transportation may be easier getting to and from S & W in Round Rock.

Although I should have requested better explanation, I did not, thus the MD spoke quickly and assumed I knew what the ____ he was talking about. Perhaps MD's should remember their patients sometimes are feeling overwhelmed, and talk to patients in easier to understand language. AND ASK the patient, several times, does the patient understand the illness/cause of the need for the visit.
