Ratings for Dr. David C. Arend
Has treated me numerous times for stones. I have had over 10 procedures in my life. He has always been very kind and has recently found something wrong with my urine chemistry. And we are hopeful that by starting a medication that I will not have many more stones. He and his staff have always treated me well. I would definitely recommend him.
Poor follow up care. Was refused an appointment after a trip to the ER in severe pain 3 weeks after a stone removal procedure. Had been in pain for weeks. Was given Cipro twice for an infection. ER doctor did a scan and did not find a reason for the pain but diagnosed the UTI. Was instructed to follow up immediately with Dr. Arend. Was told the next day by Dr. Arend's nurse that the dr found nothing on the scan from the ER and does not need to see me because there is nothing urological wrong with me. She conceded yes a UTI is urological but that my primary care dr can treat that. Was also told by Dr. Arend after my stone procedure that it went normal and the stone was removed and sent to the lab for analysis. Was then told weeks later by his nurse that no stone was retrieved and sent to the lab and according to the notes she is reading it is "assumed" the stone came out when the surgical instrument was removed. Over all horrible experience with both Dr Arend and his staff.
