After several years of treatment for BPH, a biopsy in Oct. 2013 revealed I had prostate cancer. Dr. Keith Garb, my excellent primary physician explained the benefits of robotic surgery but cautioned that the procedure required the skills of an excellent surgeon with LOTS of experience using the DaVinci robotic system. For that he referred me to Comprehensive Urology at Cedar Sinai. I met Dr. Kia Michel later that week and again a few days before the surgery. I was impressed by his knowledge and experience (he said he’s done over 1000 of these robotic procedures) but even more I was struck by the warmth of his personality, his genuine concern and unending positivity. He even took time to explain the procedure to my 20 year old son who joined my wife and I at the pre-op visit. I had the surgery in early Jan. 2014. It went very well; I am 4 months in and my recovery has been picture perfect. In conclusion, I highly recommend Dr. Kia Michel and Comprehensive Urology.

Dr. Michel is an amazing doctor. He has the best bedside manner I have ever seen. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. My father had prostate cancer and Dr. Michel was his doctor. It was obviously a very stressful time, but Dr. Michel was great through the whole process. He was very concerned with making sure my dad didn't have incontinence problems after his surgery. Dr. Michel used minimally invasive techniques (robotic surgery) to perform the prostate removal. The surgery was successful, and my father is cancer-free now. I would highly recommend Dr. Michel to others.
