Dr. Michael Zahalsky, MD

Urologist

Professional statement

A Northeast native, Michael Zahalsky, M.D., is one of the only South Florida Urologists to specialize and treat Male infertility through microscopic procedures. Dr. Zahalsky is invigorating the esteemed urology departments at all the local hospitals with his enthusiasm and proficiency. Dr. Zahalasky came to South Florida and started his private practice in July 2005 following a dual fellowship at Boston University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where his work included innovative treatments for male and female sexual dysfunction and the implementation of microscopic urological procedures. Dr. Zahalsky's expertise centers on male infertility, male and female sexual dysfunction and minimally invasive urological procedures .This includes microsurgical varicocelectomy , a low risk procedure which improves semen production, testicular function and consequently yields higher pregnancy rates. He also specializes in the following urological procedures: male and female dysfunction, minimally invasive treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia with an in-office procedure; minimally invasive approaches to kidney stone removal; minimally invasive procedures for stress urinary incontinence in females; microscopic vasectomy reversal and laparoscopic kidney removal. In 2004, Dr. Zahalsky received a grant from the New York Academy of Medicine to research genetics of male infertility arising from the X-chromosome at the Whitehead Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Through an American Geriatric Society grant that same year, he taught the importance of geriatrics to Boston University Urology residents. Dr. Zahalsky credits these fellowships with his ability to bring new procedures to urology patients in Florida.

Clean office. wait was less than 30 minutes and I was in and out. Doctor listened and gave proper attention. The office is run like a well oiled machine, with a few NY transplants on staff so there is that vibealso. all female staff it seems which may or may not be a good thing depending on your comfort level w/ urology stuff. All were professional though.

Melissa, the PA is wonderful. I have had the most interaction with her in my two visits. She feel very comfortable with her and she is very pleasant to me. The front desk folks are efficient and pleasant , they displayexcellent customer service . I have only met Dr. Z once for a short time, so I will hold my opinions about him until I know him better. The office is clean ,comfortable and well organized. The Tech who I don't know her name was also very professional and courteous. (She gave me a bladder ultra-sound twice).

Although this is not the only medical office to be efficient in the usage of Doctors and Assistants time, without really considering the patient's time, because it is clear that the patient's time is NOT VALUED. I had an appointment, setup three weeks in advance at 10:15 am on March 17 and as punctually demands I was there at 10:10 am, AFter having to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes I finally get visited by the Assistant to tell me that all they had to do was take a blood sample. This I expected as we are monitoring PSA levels, for possible cancer! Which is not a flu. I finally get the "nurse" or maybe intern with no experience, to take blood, and she actually pinched me very badly hurting me and leaving a hematoma on my arm. After that I have called a couple of times to get my results and to this day 3/26/2015 they are not in my charts according to customer service on the phone. I have had blood work results in 24 hours before. I finally got a call by the PA explaining that the results were there but havent been reviewed by the doctor and thats why its not available. So in any case I cant feel very pleased with the service of this office, its like a money making machine that could care better and in a timely manner, about their patients, at least me, so I feel.

Effective, Doctors assistant, the Nurse Practitioner saw me first and asked me questions concerning my state. Answered my questions and offered the prescription I requested. She came after I had ultrasound and confirmed all ok, and set upnext appointment. Dr came afterwards to say hello and confirm prescription requested.

Well as most, to quick on the draw. Very fast to diagnose a Biopsy which is acceptable. Only problem is when performed they show you the door, meaning no time for you. Then when asked to make an appointment for resultsin two weeks time , meaning you have or not have cancer, office tells you he will be on holly days so lets make it in FOUR WEEKS!!!! What is this? I asked I am to wait FOUR WEEKS to know IF I have cancer when RESULTS are here in TWO???? Thats what happened. in the office so I demanded to have my results in TWO WEEKS. A life changing experience and they pretend you wait twice the time you should. Nerve wrecking.

I'm always happy to see Dr. Zahalsky. The only thing I do not like is that for the last two visits I've had to wait more then an hour to see him. I was told that there was some surgeries hehad to do at the office. I wish there was another way to schedule regular visits with surgical ones.
