Patient Testimonials & Reviews


“Both Dr. Bell and his assistant Jakob were excellent. I felt well informed and sincerely felt they cared and had a passion for their patients. My surgery went perfectly. I’ve had more than one urologist but found the one I’m staying with. Staff was all well prepared, your practice is a well-oiled machine.”

—Greg M.

“I’ve been a patient for over 25 years. I’ve had kidney stones and two laser procedures on my prostate. The staff are outstanding – I can’t say enough about them. I would recommend Urology Associates to anyone with urological problems.”

—Richard P.

“Because his father was diagnosed with prostate cancer at about the same age, Dr. Galansky has been monitoring my husband’s PSA for over 7 years in conjunction with our internal medicine doctor.

His PSA suddenly shot up a significant amount and so Dr. Galansky’s office called him to go in for a digital exam and a PSA recheck. Dr. Galansky quickly and thoroughly informed us of my husbands options as well as his recommendation for treatment. Treatment has worked and he is cancer free.

The funny thing is, whenever we tell his story and mention Dr. Galansky’s name, someone always pipes up and says, “My, husband has seen him.” Whether it be for prostate, urology issues or just a vasectomy, the final comment is always the same, “Oh, he just loved him as a doctor.” Thank you Dr. Galansky. You are the BEST!!!”


“Every staff person we encountered was polite, professional, friendly and helpful. I wish we could name them all. LaDon is a kind, caring nurse who went out of her way to help my husband and me. She was always prompt in calling us, even after hours, to answer questions and allay our fears.

My husband had a successful surgery performed by Dr. Stanley Galansky. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but he is also a gentle, kind, caring man. He went out of his way to explain everything to my husband and me before and after the surgery. He never appeared rushed when talking to us but always made us feel that he personally cared about us. He is truly a wonderful man and a remarkable doctor! We have the utmost respect for him and highly recommend him.”


“The front desk staff member Ms. Regina was friendly, courteous and helpful in completing paperwork and answering my questions. Dr. Nina Casanova is a one of a kind, a talented pediatric urology doctor. She made our 8 yo son feel comfortable about his body, how to talk about his body and not be embarrassed. She is a very detail oriented doctor, who thoroughly answered all of my questions with a smile. In today’s world where everything is rush, rush, rush, Dr. Nina takes her time to listen to our son, values his opinions and that means the world to us! Her nurse, Tanverie, was especially nice, she smiled and answered my questions! This staff and Dr. Nina are wonderful! I would highly recommend this office to anyone needing a urology doctor.”

—Robin Strand

“My only regret is having waited so long before I decided to have surgical treatment. I would have the TURP procedure again by Dr. Bell in a heartbeat. In addition, the staff and his PA were always professional, courteous and friendly.”

—Louis D.

“My son, Dillon, was referred to Urology Associates by his pediatrician for a painful testicle and we were questioning if the blood flow was in danger. Urology Associates was able to get him in right away and get the needed tests ordered. We found out the blood flow was fine and no treatment was needed, which was a relief. Dr. Galansky and his PA Lee Parsons handled everything with skill and professionalism and I was very happy with the care. It is difficult to find a medical practice which has excellent care and also good business practices. I really appreciate the entire practice’s efforts!”


“Very impressed with Dr. Bell. He performed surgery on me for kidney cancer back in ’07 and I’m still here being able to talk about it. Great doctor. What else can you say about someone who saved your life?”

—Harry P.

Dr. Cowan and his PA are thorough, knowledgeable, and efficient.”

—Stan Foxx

“I’m amazed how everyone works in a professional manner. Everyone is so caring when it comes to meeting the needs of the patient. Also I found that they’re pretty quick in taking you back to a room and getting you ready to see the doctor. I have never had a problem whatsoever with any of their offices. I find that each doctor is well skilled in their profession as well as very knowledgeable. That to me is a plus.”


“The doctor was able to see me promptly and immediately began treatment. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. He took time to explain each phase of my treatment and surgery. He answered all questions and addressed my anxieties thoroughly. I believe that he saved my kidneys!! Thank you!”

—Antonio H.

“I had a very serious problem; I was living with a catheter and a bag. I was told by my original urologist that I needed surgery which would have resulted in permanent consequences. I would have found it difficult to live with those permanent consequences. My new urologist, Dr. Fagelson, used the Rezum procedure instead. It took a while, but I am now fine and back to normal. It is amazing!”


“I have been seeing Dr. James Fagelson starting in 2011seeking help with my condition. My days consisted of not able to urinate, stopping every 10 minutes looking for relief whether at home or out and about, not being able to sit without discomfort, frequent visits to the restroom all night every night, lack of control and infections. I ask you what kind of life quality is that? First of all and foremost, I’m a person who wants a doctor who cares about you and your health, not your money, along with a medical staff that backs his every move to improve your condition. Make no mistake that you can’t snap your fingers and make things great and wonderful again within seconds. I have had two procedures over my seven years with Dr. Fagelson and with the first one with a few days of recovery I GOT MY LIFE BACK! My second procedure was out of everyone’s control due to the regrowth which only happens rarely, and the results are that I can do anything and everything that I want without worries, discomfort or restrictions. I will continue my visits with Dr, Fagelson and staff because I truly have found someone who cares. You might be asking yourself why did it take him so long to write this review? I would not judge anybody unless i have solid proof and the outcome is I HAVE A LIFE AGAIN!!!!!!!! They truly care! THANK YOU DR. FAGELSON AND STAFF.”


“I am truly impressed how fast and efficient the staff is and how quick they get you back to see the doctor. Also they’re pretty quick in setting up appointments, whether it be for the doctor or a test that you may need. I like the fact that the staff greets their patients with professionalism, as well as answers your questions and concerns that you might have. It is such a joy to be seen in this office when the staff treats their patient with kindness and respect.”


“The care provided between Dr. Bell at UA and Dr. Gilroy at Anova Cancer Care was excellent. The coordination between the two offices was seamless. Hearing the diagnosis of cancer was a shock. Dr. Bell spent time with my wife and I explaining the disease and all treatment options. He was completely honest and we left that meeting feeling like we had more than enough information to make our choice. We choose CyberKnife at Anova Cancer Care. Again, Dr. Gilroy was excellent at calming my fears and explaining the treatment process in detail. The staff at both offices are caring, friendly and very good at their jobs.

It is a little intimidating to be told you have cancer. Both UA and Anova Cancer Care made this process easier than I expected. Thank you to all involved in my care. If you’re not sure what to do if you have the diagnosis of prostate cancer, call them. I’m very glad I did.”


Dr. Galansky, and his entire staff at Urology Associates has been very instrumental and informative in my father’s battle with his cancer treatment. Everyone is very kind, compassionate and competent, which is awesome, especially when families are dealing with these unknown and scary diagnoses. Mary Jane (Dr. Galansky’s nurse) has been especially kind to me when trying to help my father. Thank you, we really appreciate you!”


“My Rezum procedure has met and exceeded my expectations, I would highly recommend it.”


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.”

— R.K.

Dr. Casanova and Leah were excellent and took great care of me during my procedure. They fully explained everything and answered any questions I had.”

— Roger

Dr. Fagelson and his team are one of the best. I had gone to a different doctor and came to him for a second opinion. It remains the best decision. Very caring and takes time to make sure you are good and understand the process. Their proactive approach brings peace of mind at a time that is challenging enough. I feel well taken care of by his entire staff.”

— E.B.

Dr. Bell, Jacob (doctor’s assistant) and the entire staff have all been very friendly, patient and accommodating during my pre- and post-op visits to the office…thanks for your expertise and kindness!”

— William

“I liked everything, all my visits were positive. I am resuming the rest of my life whatever time is left.”

— S.K.

“Everyone is very kind & helpful. Dr. Casanova treated me as a patient, not as a number & I appreciate that. She listened to me even when the tests showed otherwise. She explained everything in complete detail so I would understand the reasoning behind treatment. I feel very blessed to have her as my physician. I also want to add that the schedulers are awesome!!!!!”

— M.M

“Yours is the best medical practice I have experienced. The doctors, PAs, nurses and staff are all first class. My most recent experience was with Andrea to schedule a follow-up appointment. She was both attentive and professional in making sure I was taken care of. She is emblematic of everyone I have come into contact with at your practice. Many thanks.”

— J.B.

Dr. Fagelson, Roxanna, and Shawheen, are always attentive and responsive to my needs. Dr. Fagelson performed a green light laser ablation surgery over a year ago that has given me a new lease on life. He is a great doctor and surgeon.”

— Greg

Dr. Bell and his staff are very caring and I am extremely pleased with them.”

— J.K.

“Fantastic care, really like being listened to, educated and treated as a person, not a number. Thanks!”

Dr. Bell, his nurse, Erin, and the entire staff were super throughout my surgery and the follow-ups. Definitely improved my quality of life. Kudos to the team.”

— Wallace

“Thank you so very much, to both Dr. Casanova and Leah, for your kindness, compassion and non-judgmental professionalism. I cannot even begin to express my relief at the positive results you obtained.”

— S.J.

“The staff at UA is outstanding. As a new patient you never know what to expect, but the experience was OUTSTANDING from the moment I walked in the door. Staff was very prompt, very friendly and made me feel welcome in a not so fun situation. Dr. Galansky was well above anything I have seen in the medical field. Great bedside manner, very welcoming, listened intently and was thorough with his explanations and treatment plan. To say I was very satisfied is putting it mildly as my visit far exceeded my expectations and I would say was OUTSTANDING.”

— G.B.

Dr. Eigner and staff are excellent. I travel from another state so I can continue with Dr. Eigner as my doctor.”

— L.D.

“I have been very pleased with the doctors and staff at UA, always helpful. Dr. Bell is great and very open to discussion.”

— Anonymous

“Like that the doctor explained what was going on and did not make me feel rushed. He had time for my questions and made me feel important instead of just an appointment.”

— Denise

“This procedure [Rezum] is a wonderful alternative to taking drugs for the rest of your life. You will find Dr. Cowan’s staff to be very professional and understanding of the challenges you face with an enlarged prostate. And I will always remember what Dr. Cowan said to me as I went through testing, procedure and recovery. He said, “You may hate me now, but you will thank me later.” Well thank you Dr. Cowan, very much. You were true to your word.”

— C.O.

“After I got Rezum therapy done, two years ago, things have improved. I’ve learned to educate myself on my symptoms and Rezum therapy has helped me manage them. Dr. Cowan is a top-notch guy. He’s got a good sense of humor and is very nice. The staff at Urology Associates was also very great. I was very happy with them and the Rezum therapy.”

— K.W.

Dr. Galansky showed me he is a professional in touch with the leaders of urological care and practices.”

— Dr. Livermore, D.C.

“Can’t ask for a better doctor/surgeon than Dr. Galansky.”

— A.G.

“Chelsea the front desk receptionist was very kind and helped me understand all the preparation for my upcoming biopsy. The doctor was thorough and had excellent bedside manner.”

— Anonymous

“I suffered from BPH which made it difficult for me to urinate normally. Alpha blocker medication was only marginally helpful. Dr. Fagelson performed a green laser ablation procedure in September 2015, which restored normal urinary function and greatly improved my quality of life. Many thanks.”

— Anonymous

“They handled my need for urgent surgery quickly and had me scheduled 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 B.

“I just can’t say enough of Dr. Bell and his service at Urology Associates. I had bladder cancer back in 1989 and had the tumor surgically removed. When some of those cancer spots recently reemerged, I was referred to Dr. Bell at Urology Associates. He performed the surgery to remove the cancer spots perfectly. I still go back every three and six months, and everything has looked great. If you are facing something similar, go see Dr. Bell!”
