Ratings for Dr. Stanley Flax
Several times been there, he was very very late. His jokes are not funny. The antibiotics helped. He forgot what we agreed to do and decided to do smth different, which is not needed at all,because I had this same condition couple years ago. Seems like he does not care at all, It is scary to trust him. I will not see him again. No thank you. I dont recommend.
Dr. Flax performed a Cystoscopy on me recently. The procedure went well and there no issues. He was an extremely friendly person and showed genuine concern about my well being. I have been to many specialists in the past and can say with confidence that he is among the top. His secretary was also very friendly and always sent me reminders about my appointments. Thank you all for your attention
Dr. Flax removed my prostate more than five years ago. The procedure went well, there has been no recurrence. Yes, I still have some incontinence... which I was warned about. I was just glancing at his ratings and can't imagine they refer to the doctor I know. His right hand lady has always been great! My visits are friendly and relaxed. I like and trust this man.
Dr. Flax and two others work as a group. While you will see the same one in the office, you may seen any of them, or others, at the Branson Clinic if you need a prostate biopsy. they handed off to each other well, and all of them are very knowledgeable. I was first diagnosed with non-aggressive cancer, but the next biopsy showed too much progression. I chose surgical removal (radical prostatectomy) and everything went as expected with Dr. Flax as the surgeon. At five months I am recovering from the effects at about the average rate and I am cancer-free. The effects are a nuisance, not painful, and I suffered virtually no pain after the surgery. I read the other comments and I did not encounter anything like rudeness or lack of heart. But I do have the advantage of being very knowledgeable already and able to read technical materials with full understanding; so I was well-prepared.
Dr Flax definitely has an attitude problem. He is very arrogant, rude and basically has no heart. Yes and that does remind me of a lot of doctors out there. So he's just like the rest if not worse. He is very rough when examining or carrying out procedures. He also has a very odd sense of humour like others have mentioned. Does he know what's he's doing? I guess so. Do I trust my life and body in his hands? No never. Should he be acting in more professional manner with patients? Yes, he's a doctor not a garbage man. With his high salary, level of education and age, he should be a better person. People like him have no conscience or compassion. Why didn't he just become a stock trader or car salesman? Doctors become doctors to help human kind with their knowledge.
Dr. Stanley Flax saved my life, 22 yrs ago, my doctor sent me to him for what he thought was a small nodule on my kidney, after having a CT scan, Dr. Flax sent for me on a Thursday as I recall, and by Sunday I was in hospital waiting for surgery, it turned out to be the beginning of Cancer starting, Dr. Flax operated on Monday and removed my kidney. All my follow ups were just great with him, no problems since, I will always be very grateful to this doctor.
The operation (day surgery) he performed did NOT work!!! I still have the same symptoms as before, and at the North York General hospital, a lack of cleanliness and care caused me to be exposed and ill from a very contagious and (in some cases, for the elderly, for example) lethal illness. All the missed sick days and pain and suffering were for nothing. Extremely disappointed to say the least.
Referred to Dr. Flax for what was thought to be prostatitis. The first time I saw him he told me to take these antibiotics and he won't need to see me again. I went back 5 weeks later and he told me I needed to wait longer for it to go away. I told him I was peeing blood and he said oh then maybe we should have a look. He did a cystocopy and told me he found something but wanted to do a CT scan to make sure. 5 days later I had a CT scan and then didn't hear from his office of a week. After the week I got a call telling me he wanted to see me at his office again and had appointments in two weeks. Meanwhile, the day after I got the CT scan I took the results to a family member that was a radiologist and after one look he told me to get to the hospital. I went to Mt Sinai was admitted the same day and put on the emergency surgery list to have part of my bladder removed. I would strongly not recommend Dr. Flax as had I not looked after it myself I would still be waiting. Stay away !
