I was worried. He wanted to try a medication first. Quite often I have problems with medications and bad reactions. He assured me that if it didn't work that he could do a procedure that would fix the problem. I washesitant and said that I could probably just deal with the problem as I had been doing. His response was quick and to the point. He asked me why I would want to continue to be uncomfortable and inconvenienced when a simple procedure would fix the problem permanently. His tone was a bit sharp and the way he looked at me was intense. I didn't have an answer. It made me feel less nervous. He scheduled a test that was also a bit upsetting. He made me feel comfortable about that as well. Like he said the test wasn't nearly as bad as I'd expected.

I saw Dr. Dhir after having symptoms of UTI or kidney stones . My urine culture came back normal so I went for a CT that was supposed to be STAT, meaning they would get me the results immediately. 7 hourslater and 5 phone calls and an ugly one that finally got them to give me my results. The CT came back normal but I’m still in pain and I’m bleeding. He told his nurse to tell me to finish my antibiotic I am out of because I only received enough for 3 days (when urine culture came back negative) and didn’t bother to investigate my symptoms any further. I would think a urologist could look for what else could cause my symptoms, but no... I was dismissed.

I chose Dr. Dhir because of his relative youth, looking for someone with modern medical training. I was not disappointed. He was very informative about the medicinal and surgical options for my condition.

I was disappointed that Dr. Dhir, who promised to personally call me to discuss the test results and further workup, never bothered to do so. I had to call his office 4 times and keep reminding them just to get my results after weeks with no follow up instructions.

I had the first appointment of the day. Was shown in to an consulting room and filled out my paperwork. Dr. D. came in within about 2 minutes and then we went over my referral to him and discussed lab results.Together we arrived at a decision and he instructed his staff to make arrangements for further procedure. Very to the point, good questions and a good listener! Good choice (had checked him out on line and with Medical Association ahead of time).

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Dhir. He provided multiple options regarding my condition and followed up with me that afternoon after all tests had been reviewed. He gave me an honest assessment and would provide referrals if necessary. I would recommend him highly.

The doctor is excellent but his staff did not do their job. It was first of the year and the receptionist had not verified my insurance deductible and was argumentative when we explained there was no deductible. She lied and wehave requested our records to be sent to another urologist. I have to wait to be reimbursed my deductible because she did NOT do her job. I would recommend his staff to be retrained or fired. This should have never happened to any patient.
