polite and professional in all ways – Not at all like other reviews! After reading them, I somewhat dreaded my appointment but was pleasantly surprised that he was just the opposite of those reviews. I was very pleased with his professionalism and punctuality.

Dr J Spaulding – I'm sorry and surprised that some of the reviews were negative--Certainly I expected a urological exam to be stressful. Dr. S made it as pleasant as possible. He explained everything and made me comfortable.

Avoid unless desperately in need of a urologist – Really unpleasant.

No doubt competent but that is not all I expect from a physician.

If he has to make me wait nearly an hour then it would be nice to have him acknowledge it - even if he doesn't apologize. A "thanks for waiting" would usually do the trick. Anyway, nothing I couldn't have got over if it weren't for the following:

Next came the urine collection (on your back, in the stirrups just like at the gynecologists). Again, no issue with the fact that a tube stuck inside you might be the best way of doing it, but I would have welcomed some explanation as to why it was better to do it this way ,and what was about to be done. "It won't be excruciatingly painful" didn't get me to that warm fuzzy place of confidence and trust.

When results came back and I asked a question as to why they might differ from previous lab results, Dr Spaulding's response was to interrupt me before i had even finished and announce in a raised voice: "I don't care what the other results said".

A lack of bedside manner sometimes comes with the territory of being a genius or even a highly skilled professional - you weigh the pros and cons...

However, Dr Spaulding was plain rude and came across as brutally impersonal and uncaring. I was upset for several hours following my visit.

Maybe he is disillusioned with his subject matter. God knows, I would be. But that is why I am not a urologist.

In summary, if you have an urgent issue and dont' have time to shop around, no doubt he has the competence to resolve it. If you have the luxury of time (factoring in the one hour wait to see Dr. Spaulding), find somebody who will treat you with a minimum of the dignity and politeness we all deserve.
