I was so impressed with Dr. David Cuellar – I was referred to him when I went to the ER just before New Year’s & was diagnosed with an 18mm kidney stone – high up enough that they didn’t need to admit me, but still an urgent case to deal with as soon as the holiday had past. He was kind, informative, fit me in last-minute for this emergency procedure this morning (and for a consultation appt. on his lunch hour yesterday), thinks I have an 80-90% chance of preventing future kidney stones & all of his nurses/staff love him.
A huge difference from my previous urologist, Dr. Subhir Chhikara, who looked annoyed at having to spend 2 minutes total out of 4 appointments with me, passing me off to his PAs & LVNs, none of whom who offered up info that I didn’t ask for, gave me no real info/hope for preventative measures & yet gave me brochures for every expensive “elective” treatment option they offer. Oh, and I got the definitive impression that he prefers to hire young, very attractive females.
Thanks to all the healthcare professionals out there who care enough to get it right.
