This provider basically saved my life -- he discovered an aggressive prostate cancer that would have spread if not dealt with at once. I will forever be indebted to him for his thoroughness and forthrightness with me.

I know Dr. Gives excellent care and may need to spend extra time if someone has a special problem. As a patient I appreciate the time spent if needed.

The Internist's information was not received by the Dr. in a timely manner. He and his staff reached out while there to be certain updated information was received. The Dr. stayed until the information was received and acted upon it in a timely manner.

Dr. Stovsky is the best of the best in the field. I have been fortunate to be under his care for many years. Thank you Dr. Stovsky.

Dr. Stovsky was great at putting my current test results, along with the outcome of last year's REZUM procedure into proper context. He also provided me with a long range understanding of how the condition could evolve and how that would be managed.

Reviewed on Jan 23, 2018

Dr Stovsky listens and communicates well. He is very thorough in our discussions and ensures my understanding

Reviewed on Jan 16, 2018

He consistently rushes through his explanations of what he's learned about my condition and what the treatment options are. He seems to be "following the rules" about giving full information and options, and he asks if I have any questions. I tell him I can't absorb it all as rapidly as he is giving it out, and I ask him to repeat more slowly. It's obvious that he doesn't feel comfortable repeating and going more slowly; it always feels as if he's got other important things to get to now that he's ticked off the "should do's". So I ask that he write out his explanations and the my treatment options on the after-visit summary. What I see on the after-visit summary is cryptic. And it is incomplete - in particular, no mention of treatment options. Consequently, I am unable to go over and think about my condition and what actions and decisions I need to take.

Reviewed on Jan 16, 2018

The front staff (check-in/check-out area) were terrific - concerned, helpful, and pleasant. The nurse/p.a. seemed to have other things on her mind... or just running through the steps of a process she'd done a million times before.
