Ratings for Dr. Thomas B. Walden
Well i started feeling sime sensations while passing urine, felt unusual urgencies to go and appears poor stream... i saw dr. Walden submitted some urine samples in his office, which he claimed to have examined and found some blood n scheduled me fo a cystoscopy... immediatelyprior to the visit had a blood urine n psa tests both came negative.... i seek a second opinion with another urologist... same tests in office, lab test showed no blood n psa normal..... went back to dr. Walden.... i could see how hard he tried to explain n insist on tge presence of blood at tge time of his in office test... .if tgere is any lessons to learn here... Get a second opinion rule.... seems to have applied here..,, n never rush to any procedure he recommends. .... get a second or third..... .
Dr. Walden is courteous, friendly, and I'm am so happy to have found him. He is cognizant of patient's time, being aplogetic when running behind. When you are seen by him, you receive his FULL care and attention. I like him very much and know I'm in good hands, and have also referred him to others.
I went to him because my urine pressure was not as it used to be, he recommened green light surgery, he said was a minor proceedure, be in and out of the hospital in one day. Needless to say the proceedure did not work and I had a catherda in me for over three weeks, during the intern I was to the emergency room 6 times, had a uninary infection and was on antibiotics. Finally after tree weeks he decided the operation was a filure and he would have to reoperate, this time he would do a Turp proceedure. After the Turp proceedure I was finaly able to uninate with out the caterda. But now I had no stream at all. I now have to sit down to urinate. I am unable to go anywhere with out knowing where there is a bathroom, as I urinate up to 18 times during a 16 hour period, and I am up at least 4 to 5 times during the night. I have tried Flowmax and Proscar and they do not have any effect on this problem. He has ruinged my quality of life.
I don't even know where to START with this man. I've never met a doctor more pathetic. I went to see Dr. Walden for an adult circumcision and at first he was extremely knowledgeable, and personable. Well, the surgery was done on a Friday, and he told me I could return to school that Monday, which didn't happen. He wouldn't fax a note to my school and my mother drove 45 minutes just to pick one up. Well, then the Thursday after the surgery I had a problem and started bleeding, and saw a yellowish build-up underneath my penis. The doctor wanted to see me, thinking it could be an infection. So, 45 minutes, 15 dollars, and an hour late he spends 30 seconds with me, doesn't even let me explain what happened, and simply says "looks normal" then walks out. So, Sunday I get in the shower, and the skin tears open and starts bleeding profusely. The number he gave us to contact him 24/7 was his office number, which leaves him unfindable on weekends. It's pretty hard to get in with problems too.
No communication between the doctor and his staff. I emphatically stressed the need to do a greenlight procedure using BC/BS providers. The very first bill I get was a $ 420.00 mistake on either he and his staffs part. Whats worse is the ho hum attitude from his staff. I'll be speaking with him today to see if this rating stays where it is.
