Dr Hyman explains how one chooses a doctor for this procedure and some of the misconceptions or a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding.
Good Communication Style
The most experienced urologists may leave you feeling not so good due to incompatibility in communication styles. If you are more comfortable speaking Spanish, choose a urologist that speaks Spanish. Remember that your urologist will be your partner in achieving peak urologic health. A doctor with a lack of interest in patients and a communication style that leaves much to be desired are going to be a problem in the long run. To assess doctors’ communication styles, schedule consultations with multiple doctors before settling for one.
