We were not certain what my co-pay was so I was required to pay the least amount. I appreciate the front office personnel working with me that way.
Great service
Website is not user friendly. I entered data twice & lost the entry. There was no submit prompt Fortunately I took a screen shot & printed for intake
I really enjoy my experience at Georgia Urology. Dr. Sarkissian is an awesome doctor. He was very helpful. He took the time to examine me and he didn’t make me feel like what I was experiencing was not true. He didn’t send me away with a bunch of prescriptions and say get well soon. He’s an awesome doctor and I really appreciate his help.
I was extremely nervous about having my procedure and everyone was very encouraging and supportive, even though they do this everyday, I never have. Dr. Sarkissian went out of his way to explain the procedure to me and make sure I understood why he chose the route he did. His confidence gave me confidence going forward.
Well pleased with my first visit
