The doctor was not able to answer questions about one of the treatment options, and recommended I make an appointment with a second doctor in the practice who has expertise in that option. Overall, the whole experience felt more like a factory where patients are moved through quickly. Not a satisfying experience. I will probably go to another doctor outside of this group to get the answers I want.

Dr. Van Appledorn is very competent and skilled but in a down to earth way. He's easy to talk to, and I always learn something new.

Sometimes, no often, it feels like dr... other things on his mind and that he's in a rush to get to his next thing to do. I don't think that my medical care has suffered, though -

This was a serious visit--a referral from my Primary Care Physician--to assess whether it was probable that I have Prostate Cancer. Dr. Van Appledorn was kind, professional, and compassionate. He listed carefully to what I, and my wife, were saying. I never felt rushed. We left that visit in a positive state of mind.

Surgically I believe he is a very capable individual. My biopsy seemed to go flawlessly. At this visit I was told I had cancer. I was handed some sheets of paper with minimal explanation. I had to go home and log on to the Sloan Kettering website to understand the results of my biopsy as the only thing I was told was that I needed to have additional tests and meet with a Radiologist Oncologist. It would have been very helpful if either A: Don't give me the Sloan Kettering nomogram or B: Explain what it means.Nobody likes to hear they have cancer and he seemed very caring but he also seemed unsure of what to say and that felt uncomfortable.
