14/04/14 4 4 4 4 I was worried when I read the reviews for Dr Bankhead but decided to follow through with my referral and give him a chance. I'm glad I did! He was very nice as well as his nurse. They took excellent care of me and answered all of my questions. Fortunately my procedure didn't result in any abnormal findings. If I need a urologist in the future I will use Dr Bankhead again.

24/07/13 2 1 2 5 I have to agree the staff is very rude. The waiting time is ridiculous. At times, I think he doesn't know what he is saying or doing.  Respond

22/12/11 5 5 5 5 DR. Bankhead diagnosed my prostate cancer when another Urologist failed to. He saved my life with his surgery skills. He is a very caring and smart doctor. He took the time to explain all my options to me. I am now a prostate cancer survivor. Best urologist in Oklahoma!

19/03/08 2 1 1 1 Incompetent - said I "might" have cancer, but wanted to "wait & see". Luckily for me, I didn't wait but got a second opinion from a fine surgeon who saved my life.  Respond

15/07/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bankhead was my urologist for several years while in Lawton. He was able to diagnose and treat my urologic problems after several other urologists had failed. He took the time to actually listen, and I found him easy to talk to. I was very disappointed that he left the Lawton area.

08/03/07 4 4 4 Dr. Bankhead correctly diagnosed the sources of my recurring UTIs and prescribed a course of treatment that has kept it in-check (1 occurance) in 2 years. He works out of an office with Urology Associates. I find these offices chaotic and anxity inducing.

27/12/06 3 5 4 Dr. Bankhead succussfully diagnosed my illness when every other doctor, including my general practitioner, misdiagnosed me and gave me the wrong medications. Because of Dr. Bankhead's care, I feel much better and can live as close to a normal life as possible. I did not need any kind of surgery, but the medications he prescribed for me helped me immensely. Definately one of the better doctors I have been to in the Oklahoma City area, and that is saying something because I have seen some awful ones here.

20/06/06 5 5 5 If I had my surgery to do over again, he would be the man to do it and I had a lot to choose from. When I found out he was leaving my area I was very disappointed, I told him unless he was leaving the U.S., it wouldn't be too far to drive to stay your patient. I feel like he saved my life.

11/07/05 2 1 1 This is the WORST urologist I have ever been to! I have been to many...I KNOW...I have had extensive kidney problems. Not only is he rude, stupid and made foolish decisions when it came to my care, he has less personality than a corpse. I warn you...EXPECT PAIN! Attending an open casket funeral is more fun than a visit to BLANK-HEAD. I hope someone yanks this man's license before he kills someone.Do yourself a favor and die before you go to this guy!!!!! SERIOUSLY...he lied to my face about my care and he damaged me in surgery.  See Responses
