I took my baby boy, my whole world, here to be circumcised. They explained the process and took him from me. I sat in the waiting room. When they bring him to me his clothes were wet. She kindly explained that he had peed during the procedure, which I understood. However, his diaper was soaked and she tells me they didn't have a clean one so they put it back on him.. Mad? Yes. I held myself and politely ask where I could change him. She talks me they have no changing area and she "thinks" all the rooms are full and I could try to change him in the chair if I'd like, then turns around and walks away.. The receptionist was very helpful and concerned. (the only pleasant part of our visit)! And if this wasn't traumatic enough, I get home and try to change his diaper. The bandage was stuck and when I tried to get it off he began to bleed ALOT. So I immediately call the office like they told me to do. I get told that they would call me back.... It took 30 minutes or more. At which point motherly instinct already kicked in and took care of the situation. I am disgusted by the professionalism of this place! My heart is broken!
Tips & Advices
There is no set cost on a urology appointment, and some start at $100 and can go up. Rates vary with each doctor and office and by services rendered. When asking a physician, find out if lab work is included in a quoted cost or is extra.
Prostate cancer is cancer of the male’s prostate gland – the glands associated with reproduction. It is one of the most common cancers in men. If diagnosed early, it is also one of the most treatable.
Some insurance plans require a referral from a primary doctor if you want them to cover the costs. For other insurance plans, it is not necessary to get a referral to see a urologist.
A urologist provides a variety of tests, starting with the testing of blood and urine samples that provide information not available in a physical exam. In men, they test for PSAs (a prostate-specific antigen) in the prostate, blood counts and kidney function. Additional image testing or (sonography) of the kidney, bladder, and prostate might be needed. A cystoscopy is a procedure that allows the doctor to examine and test the lower urinary tract (bladder etc.) for cancer. Organ and prostate biopsies, renal angiograms, and urine flow tests are also common tests readily available.
A urology exam will depend on your specific condition. You can expect the standard paperwork plus a questionnaire that asks about your symptoms. You will very likely be giving a urine sample and  exam is typical. The rest of the exam will depend on whether you are male or female, and what your specific needs are. Rectal (and prostate exam and/or tests for men), blood tests, imaging of organs, and other tests might be needed based on the diagnosis.
