"Come to Dr. Patel. PERIOD. I say end of discussion!"
At age 45, being a retired fighter pilot, I thought my biggest health problem was my lower back. But after some routine blood work, I received some life changing news. I was diagnoses with prostate cancer. I was otherwise healthy, and this diagnosis made my world come crashing down. My wife, Maria did most of the research and after our urologist recommended conventional surgery, this is the route we thought we would go. Sitting in the waiting room for my appointment, I met someone who had just had conventional surgery and was not a "happy camper". Which prompted us to further research robotic surgery options. This is how we found Dr. Patel, Dr. Patel called my wife personally, and she just couldn't believe she was speaking with him. Even though the procedure seemed relatively new and not yet mainstream. I wanted to do it, and we felt very secure in Dr. Patel and the professionals on his staff. My surgery was on a Monday, the catheter came out Friday. I had lifting restrictions, but that was it. Let's face it, as a man I was concerned about sexual function, but afterwards, I was amazed that not only did the function come back, but at how soon it came back. I say: Come to Dr. Patel. PERIOD. I say end of discussion!. I would say he is the best. His staff is great, the facilities are brand new, and the guy knows what he's doing. I was not that guy I met in that other waiting room. Let's put it that way!
