overall good experience, Dr. Luria seems to know what he's doing.yet, he didn't answer all of my questions and was rushing out the door before I could finish. kind of frustrating, but I get it, it's just a follow up. he did put my mind at ease by saying keep doing what you're doing and I'll see you in 4 months. I get it he likes to keep things simple, however, I want a thorough explanation of what's going on. what to expect - good, bad, ugly, etc. I hope there's a solution in 4 months beyond keep taking these pills.

I have nothing negative to say about Dr. Luria. He is always very polite, very helpful, extremely professional and personable, he explains everything in great detail. I like him very much. I would highly recommend him as a physician to anyone needing a urologist. I see him for routine yearly exams. The ease of access in appointments and speaking with him is terrific. His telephone followups are terrific. He called me back in less than one hour after leaving him a message regarding my test results. The gals in his office are all very polite and helpful. I have no issue with the practice or the doctor.

Dr. Luria is pretty punctual. I cannot recall a time I have ever waited very long for an appointment or to be seen in his office. He is typically ON TIME! I cannot say that about all doctors.

Dr. Lauria had his staff schedule an immediate CT scam and then a follow up with him within a day of the CT. It was great to have the appointment made right in his office and not have to go through central scheduling.
