Seriously, this was hands down one of the best experiences I've ever had at a doctor.
Very friendly. Excellent listening skills. And very well at communicating plans for procedures.
It was my first visit to the office and the staff was not overly friendly but it was Monday morning so I'll have to give them the benefit of the doubt and see how it is on my follow up. Dr. McCauley was fantastic spent time asking questions and explaining next steps.
Don't bother filling out/sending your forms online with ZocDoc, they "don't transfer over." You'll have to fill them out all over again once you're there.
I was very please with my visit and with the initial consult with Dr. McCauley. I will be returning for a 2nd visit and procedure. The staff was very please and professional, as was Dr. McCauley.

I had an appointment with Dr. McCauley but ended up seeing the PA, not sure why. The PA was very nice and cordial. I was very satisfied.
She is amazing! She actually reviewed my past medical history & my scans before coming in to talk to me! She spent a great amount of time explaining all the issues I am having & a proactive course of treatment. She also discovered something that my gastro doc had missed! She's personable, professional and I finally feel as if I'm getting the care I've been looking for. Her staff is great as well!
Dr. McCauley was wonderful. She listened carefully to what my concerns were and then explained what needed to be done in a manner easy for me to understand.

Fast & mildly terrifying
Knowledgeable, very understanding and compassionate at my first visit to this office.
ZocDoc paperwork was complete. Got text msg prior to appt, confirming...wishing ZocDoc address text linked to mapping. Parking is not really evident, spaces can be far from bldg, accessible spaces not evident. Staff was kind, efficient, not stressed out; clean office. Nurse was kind, gentle, friendly. Dr. McCauley!!! Wishing she was my PCP! She is the best ever! Really personable, friendly, knowledgeable, had reviewed my paperwork and had a plan, explained thoroughly, very open and honest, understanding...compassionate and respectful!! Love her! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Was referred by St Joe's Hospital for a very tough case I have been dealing with the past few months. Dr McCauley exceeded my expectations of her knowledge with my current situation, she left me with the impression that my future with this issue will be guided by her exceptional talents. I am always apprehensive when meeting a doctor for the first time, however she put me totally at ease. I encourage those with a problem in the area of urology to give her the same chance I did. You will definitely be happy you did so!
Very informative she cares
Great doctor and staff.

Courteous professional compassionate
She's the best doctor I visit. Always has time to listen and talk.
Very thorough exam. Answered all my questions.
I had my initial consultation with Dr. McCauley today and it was a great experience. She took the time to answer all of my questions as well as make sure that I understood her diagnosis. I did not feel "rushed" at all by her. Which is rare these days!
Enjoyable. Pleasant bedside manner. Very helpfull. Staff was pleasant. This was my first visit. She was recommended to me by a friend.. I will be returning to her. And I will recommend her to friends.
It was informative and smooth.
over an hour wait after my appt. time....and even though the Dr had a nice personality, there was really nothing gained from the visit. I did not gain any knowledge or suggestive ideas/solutions for my condition that I hadn't already read about online. money and valuable time not well spent
Very good experience. Makes you feel comfertable. Nice smile too!
