What Patients Say
"Dr. Eigner has been my urologist for many years. He is always thorough in his examination and treatment. He's solved my medical problems and I believe through his sound medical judgment prevented others."— Richard
"They handled my need for urgent surgery quickly and had me schedule for the procedures two days later. Surgery went well and several staff members contacted me after completion to ensure I had all I needed for a pain free and rapid recovery. They shared all the results and reports of the procedure in a timely manner. Overall, I could not be happier. Thanks to all of you." — Pete“Dr. Eigner and staff are excellent. I travel from another state so I can continue with Dr. Eigner as my Doctor.”— Lynn
