Dr Zadra diagnoised and performed surgery on me this year. I found him very polite, explained everything to me and answered any questions I had. Advised me of the bad and the good of the surgery. He was very upbeat and made me feel very comfortable in his presence. I will definitely go back to him if I have any future problems

The symptoms that I had first gone to him with had stopped . He made me feel without any explanation that I had to have the surgery or suffer the Consequences.Without any explanation of what they might be.

I was first diagnosed with prostate cancer 2 years ago. My family doctor phoned me to inform, then went on to assure me that I would be a likely candidate for Active Surveillance. A few days later when my wife and I met with Dr. Zadra...after keep us and dozens of other patients waiting for hours, yet again, he opened the meeting with 'it's gotta come out: you need surgery'. In the process of asking him follow up questions, he vascillated. When I eventually asked him what he would do, he said 'probably brachytherapy radiation'. He referred me to his radiation associates. They also said surgery. Back to Zadra, again waiting for others with a full waiting room....he then starts cavalierly with 'I think that active surveillace might be best for you' . My wife and I almost ran out of the room. I went back to my family doc and asked if it was possible to fire a urologist....she assured my I could and helped me find a wonderful alternative: Dr. Todd Webster in Owen Sound, who has since succesfully performed surgery from which I am happily healing..

Very dismissive when it came to my bladder issue. Gave me no detail about a drug trial just said that will be my treatment, told me to go down the hall and talk to my nurse. When I was describing my symptoms he would totally interrupt making it difficult for him to get a clear picture of what was happening, very rude indeed.

Dr.Zadra removed a kidney stone I had blocking my ureter a few months ago and he was amazing! He was so personable and funny!! I was extremely nervous because I hadn't had surgery before but he patiently answered all of the questions that I had and walked me through the procedure step by step. Overall great experience with him!! If I ever need another surgery I will definitely push to have him as my surgeon!!

I guess it depends who you are. My husband saw Dr. Z years ago and found him personable. But for myself he was arrogant, rude and dismissive. Even when referring to his notes he couldn't remember anything about my case. Asked me why I drink so much tea! I don't. He argued and said I had told him I most certainly did. He then said WE had to find a solution to my problem because no one wants to have to smell urine on a piddler like myself. WHAT? I asked if he had ever smelled urine on me and he refused to answer. THAT WAS NOT MY PROBLEM. It's pretty bad when you have to sit in a tightly packed waiting room for sometimes hours to see a man who you know is going to insult you! So arrogant that when he walks out the door of her personal office the first thing he sees is a HUGE photo of himself on the wall. Seriously?? How many other professionals have themselves on display in their waiting rooms!??
