Explained all test results and was sure that I understood all that he told me. My appointment took a little over an hour and half.

Met to discuss options for prostate. He explained the green light laser and recommended that. I came back days later to discuss and he described Urolift and thought we should do that. The procedure was done in the office and was very uncomfortable. I peed afterward and was told to go on about my day and everything would be fine. No info about post surgery was given. 6 hours later I was in the ER in excruciating pain, and was there for 6 days. 4 were constant pain & blood filled urine. I seemed to be an inconvenience to him and it took 3 days for him to come see me and still did nothing. Hospital Dr. insisted something had to be done but was Saturday and he would not work on his day off but sent his partner. Very hard to get on the phone and slow in responding both to me and the hospital. He pushes everything off on his P A and made it difficult to see him. After things cleared up he did the laser and that has seemed to work. I was on a catheter for a month and had a total of 9 catheters inserted ( the really big ones ). I also incurred substantial additional expense due to the hospital stay and insurance got stuck with $37,000 for something that should have never happened.

Dr. Kashif Alvi saved my life by removing my Prostate Cancer. It's been 15 months since my surgery and as of 3/28/17, I'm cancer free. I am so lucky that I put my life in his hands. I will be forever grateful toward him !!

Dr. Alvi performed Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy surgery on me. He is a fantastic surgeon who really cares about the health of his patients. I waited more than an hour for me to come out of anesthesia to be there when I woke up. It has been 6 months now and I am "Cancer Free" thanks to Dr. Alvi, his great surgical team and office staff.

General Comments

It takes a few visits to get to know Dr. Alvi, but that's probably true of many doctors. Both my wife and I like him very much. We've been working with him for several months and that includes many visits to his office. I would recommend him without hesitation.
