One of the doctors staff members came in to go through a questionnaire and she took her time and asked many questions and explained the process… She then informed me that she would get with the doctor to update him about our discussion and several minutes later she came in along with the doctor… He explained everything to me in layman‘s terms and I did not feel any anxiety or had worries once we finished our discussion… I made my decision for surgery right then and there after having five other consultations with other urologists my level of comfort with Dr. Kundu put my mind at ease….. he explained to me all preop requirements and expectations of postop and I actually felt relieved after meeting with him
