Appointments were running about 30-40 minutes behind schedule. Once i got to see him, Dr Tay was very professional and explained everything I needed to or wanted to know. He outlined a course of treatment and answered any questions I had regarding the treatment.

There needs to be more updates from staff rather than patients waiting with no conract. Way too many appointment reminders. Over 10. Ridiculous.

Dr. Tay does a nice job but the office staff does not leave me with very much confidence. Wait time was long and I have seen samples misplaced. I have to submit a second sample due to the possibility mine was incorrect (someone else's).

This was my first visit to Arizona State Urology and i could not not have been more impressed. My initial contact with ASU was with Valerie K. and she was not only very professional and efficient, but she was very personablewhich is extremely appreciated being that I was new to this practice and somewhat apprehensive about my visit. Regarding Dr. Tay, what can I say?Dr. Tay is very professional, caring and a very good listener. Dr. Tay and I discussed my current issues and devised a game plan going forward. Dr. Tay explained his initial findings and answered all of my questions. I'm very happy to be under this group of professionals care.

the only reason I had longer wait times than normal was due to Dr. having longer stay at hospital . this was beyond his control and he got to see mee as soon as he was able, because he is agood doctor he always spends the time necessary to make sure his patients understands everything before he will leave them, I really appreciate this when it might be me with the extra question.

I did a vasectomy in April of 2018. Dr Tay was professional and kept me informed. He was good about checking in on my comfort during the procedure. He built rapport while he was working which helped me focus on ourconversation instead of worrying about the procedure. I liked how I was able to select the music to listen to on Amazon Alexa while I waited. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Tay and all of his staff. I received excellent care.

I am so grateful that I saw Dr. Tay! Also his Nurse Practitioner was so patient with my 1000 questions and she was very informative and wrote down all of my concerns and symptoms. Dr Tay immediately made me feel calmwith his accuracy and knowledge. Instead of diagnosing me without actual evidence. Dr. Tay’s thuroughness by ordering urine, blood, x-ray, urine flow and cystoscopy made me feel confident that he will go in every direction to find out my discomfort. If anyone needs to see a urologist (man or woman) Dr. Tay is the best!

He was amazing with my father. My father has Alzheimer's & Dr. Tay was so good with him making my father focus on him rather than what he was getting done to him. It was a great experience. I would recommend everyone to see him as your urologist

Dr Tay is great. But I was promised an update from the front desk because Dr. Tay had an emergency at the hospital and I was told that he would be 20 - 30 mins late. Never got any updates andhe was over an hour late for my appointment. He is worth a wait but the front desk people need to learn how to be honest and keep the patients updated.

I wasn't seen for awhile, but you don't always have control over that when you're a doc dealing with a lot of elder people, who usually like to talk and talk. Wait time is whatever, everything else was great.

Although I am not fortunate enough to have the newest technique to repair my issue, I'm confident his option that I chose willbe a success. He explained it all to me and now I am just waiting for surgery, will add another review once finished.
