The Internet offers several sites for reviewing urology surgeons. One is HealthGrades.com, where patients can search for urology surgeons by name or state and see their patient ratings and contact information. Another site is US News & World Report, which shows the best hospitals in urology.
US News & World Report offers a regular list on the best hospitals in the country based on a particular specialty. One of the categories in the list is Best Hospitals for Adult Urology. In that list, patients can find information about more than 1,500 hospitals in how they scored on patient reviews, survival rates and patient safety.
The website Vitals.com allows patients to see how long a urology surgeon has been practicing, whether the physician has won any awards or honors, his contact information, how far away the doctor is located and patients' reviews of the physician's services.
The website HealthGrades.com provides an even more detailed search, offering categories for subtopics in urology surgery, including Endourology and Pediatric Urology. HealthGrades.com also has search categories for Conditions Treated, Procedures, Patient Feedback, Procedures Performed and what type of insurance the physician accepts. Patients give feedback in the areas of ease of scheduling, office cleanliness, staff friendliness, wait time, level of trust and how much time the doctor spent with patients.
