Ratings for Dr. Michael A. Volpe
Met with him for the first time today for BPH and potential prostatitis. Staff was very friendly (and competent). They were running a bit late, but he made an effort to get back on track by seeing me he waited on something for another patient and was kind enough to explain the situation. I found him very well informed, thorough, able to explain key concepts, and willing to take the time to answer all my questions. At the same time, he was friendly, respectful, and easy to talk to. I've only seen him once at this point, but plan to continue with him. Overall, I was very happy with the appointment.
He is way too aggressive in treating borderline cases, like myself. He could have proceeded with caution when my PSA levels came back as slightly elevated. Instead, he recommended a prostate biopsy, and this dangerous procedure resulted in my coming down with septic shock. It nearly cost me my life. A year later, I am still living, but my quality of life has badly deteriorated, perhaps for good, and I am being treated for seizures resulting from the sepsis. I had never had any seizures before coming under Dr. Volpe's care, so I have effectively swapped out a urologist for a neurologist.
Saw Dr. Volpe for the first time at Summit Medical Group in Berkeley Heights last week and was very impressed with him & his staff. He is knowledgeable & explains everything to you. Sent me for all the relevant tests to put me at ease. I will be switching over to him from my previous Urologist. The ladies that work at the front desk are also very warm & friendly. I had a great experience here.
Dr. Volpe is an outstanding Dr and surgen. I had a Monday morning appointment for a problem that I had. By the end of that day he is diagnosed that i had cancer and it set me up for surgery the following day. The surgery went off perfectly. His caring of his patients and his bedside manner is second to none.
