Dr. Muruve is an awesome doctor. I've been his patient for more than 10 years. He had been patiently monitoring a cyst on my kidney. Every year he had me do several tests to ensure that my cyst wasn't growing. He finally told me it's time to remove it. Well thank God he did. It turned out to be kidney carcinoma.

I have been Dr. Nicolas Muruve's patient since approximately January ?, 2016 to present. Dr. Muruve is an excellent and outstanding physician. He is always extremely very patient with me. He always expresses genuine concern about me worrying about my medical condition and he always does his best to make certain that I am calm before I leave my scheduled appointment with him. He always explain the results of my ultrasounds, CT Scans, MRIs in detail and patiently answers all my questions. He always respond to my telephone calls, texts, when I need to follow up with him before a scheduled appointment, because I forgot to ask a question or I just couldn't recall something he shared with me about my complex kidney cyst. Additionally, I am so very grateful and appreciate that I can schedule an appointment with Dr. Muruve, as a follow-up after my scheduled appointment because I am very overwhelmed due to my medical condition and I need to ask him questions face to face prior to my next scheduled appointment. With heartfelt sincerity I am humble, grateful, and extremely appreciate Dr. Muruve. Due to the outstanding medical treatment, patience that Dr. Muruve, has provided to me from the time he became my Urologist, I have not had to engage in psychotherapy!! I am grateful and so very thankful that for Dr. Nicolas Muruve.
