My visit with the Urologist was great. However, I think Providence needs to have more Urologists. I had to wait three months to see one.

I never would have thought this possible, but I actually enjoy my annual visit with Dr. Ward, even though it also involves a prostate exam.

great nursing staff. Doc himself excellent at listening and problem solving, but doesn't learn to know patient as human being before making decisions, for example, I have pain processing issues but he refused mild sedation for a procedure because the America Society of Urologists said it wasn't necessary--penny wise pound and patient foolish
