Ratings for Dr. Douglas M. Dahl
Compassionate, professional , empathetic and balanced perspective. Having been diagnosed with early stage Prostate cancer, I was fully expecting to require surgery and was referred to Dr. Dahl who specializes in laporascopic surgical techniques. In short, upon review of my case he felt I was a prime candidate for watchful surveillance and should hold off on surgery if I can deal with knowing I have cancer. Two years later we continue to monitor every six months, have had an additional biopsy, but things remain stable- I truly appreciate his professional approach of not performing surgery if it's not needed, but fully confident that if some day I do, I'm with one of the best in the business.
Dr. Dahl is a brilliant doctor that is vey knowledgeable in urology. I was very fortunate to speak with him and have him diagnose my kidney for possible tumors. He explained to me if they were tumors his surgical procedure would easily abate the situation without removal of a kidney. I have never met such a doctor with confidence about abating cancerous tumors without the necessary chemo or radiation additions. A leader in the field of urology.
Dahl performed a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy on me 11/2002 for early-stage cancer at age 64. In the aftermath, negligible urinary incontinence, but erectile function never recovered--for which I blame the odds, not Dahl. Recovery from the procedure was very rapid and uncomplicated, and his follow-up care has been excellent in every way, including help with workarounds for the impotence. (My advice: pray for nerve regeneration and a partner with a sense of humor.)
