The nurse assistant was most apologetic. The Doctor came in immediately, and the procedure was done in record time. The Doctor did not have much to say, and I do not feel he understood the extreme discomfort I was in for a 42 minute wait on your back with your legs in stirrups. I understand the medicine only takes 15 minutes to numb the area involved.

Dr. Bologna fixed a previous surgery I had in FL. I had 3 second opinions and I liked Dr. Bologna's procedure the best even after talking with a University of FLORIDA specialist. He is my hero as he "fixed" my bladder and I can now sit to urinate. I would recommend his services.

I started to see Dr. Bologna in 2007 for a prolapsed bladder, vagina and bowel. He did an excellent job of "putting" me back together. On March 25, 2019, I had to have my prolapsed bladder repaired again due to age. Dr. Bologna has always been kind to me and makes me feel comfortable if I have any "female" questions I would like to have answered. Beside his kindness, he has a wonderful sense of humor which made me relax when going in to have the surgery done. I do recommend him to those that I know.
