the provider was extremely busy.
Dec. 12, 2019
He was very knowledgeable and diligent going over every option. I have no doubt that he is one of the best and a good doctor. That being said he came off almost abrasive and condescending. The lack of compassion is not ideal when you are dealing with already sensitive and embarrassing issue.
Nov. 29, 2019
He was very knowledgeable about my condition! However, He seemed to be in a hurry and not as concerned about making sure my questions were answered before leaving.
Nov. 27, 2019
Dr often cuts you off when you ask questions or are talking. Sometimes answers in a condescending way.

I was not notified before my first app;oint that I had to complete a 48 hour input and output of water. Thus I had to reschedule a month later which was not a big inconvenience but could have been avoided.

Dr. Guralnick was very helpful and knowledgeable.

This isn't a provider issue, but I use a wheelchair for mobility and more spaces for disabled parking are needed in the east parking structure.

Very professional.
May 22, 2019
Dr. Guralnick is the 5th urologist I have seen for my issues (in 4 cities.) He is the urologist who solved my problems and helped me lead a better life! He is competent, professional, knowledgeable and respectful.

He has helped me a great deal, I'm VERY grateful to him.
May 3, 2019
Generally, I'm extremely happy with the care I received. The reason I rated a 9 instead of a 10 is because he doesn't always carefully and completely answer questions, which can be frustrating. A few times in the past, I asked a question that perhaps he didn't know the answer to, and he sort of just shrugged off the question. A straight answer of "I don't know" or "nothing can really be done about that" would be preferable to no answer. He's obviously an amazing surgeon, and I have no complaints with the results of my care - to the contrary, the results are better than I'd expected. If I was in a similar situation again in the future, I would absolutely go back to him; and if I heard someone had a similar need as mine, I would recommend him without hesitation.

His experience speaks well for him. Is direct and has logical explanations
April 18, 2019
Dr. Guralnick is the best, smartest, well informed, has best memory of my conditions in the past; I think he really saved my life. I went to him desperate for medical attention with my bladder. He listens so well to my feelings, he is a wonderful doctor. He's a "10" and that's the truth! He manages his office so well and has a well trained staff around him. Who could ask for more? I wish him well in all he does - I hope he will see this opinion.

always explains everything in detail.

The facility all around was extremely clean, sanitary & careful about everything. Wash room, containers sterile & D.O.B. checked frequently.
I have been in more than one hospital & OR urologist office that felt unsafe for my body in general. Could have contracted an infection in a place where I was supposed to be treated. These were in totally different cities & medical groups. Thank you for the immaculate conditions.
April 10, 2019
Dr. Guralnick ordered appropriate tests, performed surgery, provided medication and followup checkups. The surgery was a success with no complications or infections. He gave me the recommendations for success and I followed what he said. I have very happy with our results!
April 8, 2019
Very GOOD!!
March 22, 2019
He listens and answers all my questions, but even though he is very busy, I would like him to separate from the computer during our discussion.
