Dr K tries and seems to give a flip. That's more than can be said for Dr. Bandi, Urology at Georgetown U Hospital (NEVER make the mistake of seeing him!!) Any review, for Dr. Bandi, above a 1, is suspect. He'sthe worst I've EVER encountered! DR K was a significant improvement....

Keith Kowalczky is a top notch doctor. He cleared up my urologocal issues in one visit, after five years of treatment by another doctor at another hospital that did not help my problem! I can't thank him enough. He gave me my life back.

Dr. Kowalczyk and the staff were all absolutely fantastic! Everyone has a smile on their face, Dr. K immediately puts you at ease and does his best to give you legitimate explanations and to answer your questions instead of brushing off your concerns. He is truly the greatest!

He said if I could "find a doctor smarter than him" to diagnose my problem, I should let him know. I'll just let you all know instead. Another doctor recognized my problem immediately...

An expert, for the field, but unfortunately I was not so successful with my only problem of probable infection that women carry. For the worth of being seen by a specialist, this doctor receives a good grade! Treatment was good.

Appt. was everything you, as a patient, want except: 1) arrived early but even though I already filled out info online (thru ZocDoc), I had to refill again 9hard copy)...when I asked what happened to the info I had filled outonline, they said "this part of the hospital (Georgetown) doesn't get info from the central computer...we're working on it..." 2) The Dr saw me immediately, was efficient, knowledgeable and didn't waste time. Told me what I needed, phoned in the meds to my pharmacy and I was done. 3) As an added precaution, suggested I have blood work done and since there was someone ahead of me I had to wait 10-15 min. On the whole, I totally recommend the doctor. If you need additional tests (ie. blood work), be prepared to wait, depending on how many people are ahead of you.
