Dr Lewis Kriteman and his staff are definitely a five star urology practice, and he is really on top of his game. I traveled a long way to get from Roswell, from where I live, and I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for him taking me as a patient. Much thanks here on my end.

I've been taking my mother to see Dr Kriteman for close to 20 years. Last week Friday, she felt a bladder infection coming on. Saturday morning I called the office and got a recorder, but there was a recording to leave a message for the on call doctor and they'd call me back. In less than ten minutes (seriously!) Dr Rutland called me back. After speaking with him, he sent in a prescription for her and I picked it up in just over an hour. She felt better by 1:00. I took her for a follow up on Friday and all was well. I was very impressed by Dr Rutland and very thankful that he was on call. My mother is 92, so it was imperative to get her some meds. I highly recommend Dr Kriteman and all the staff.

Dr. Kriteman is a great choice if you are researching for a urologist. The practice is extremely well run. The experience starts with an encouragement to provide your details online - avoiding having to do that in the waiting room at the practice; the staff are very friendly; Dr. Kriteman is everything one looks for in a physician - he explains everything clearly and the examination is efficient but you never feel rushed. I go annually as part of my annual checkup routine and I get preliminary feedback on my results before I leave. Finally, this time, when I was leaving, the member of staff checking me out was "happy that I had a good result and do not have to return for a year" - you definitely feel that everyone cares about your well-being.

Watched a video of Dr Kriteman talking about Aquablation and then set up a virtual appointment with him to discuss whether that procedure would be right for me. I was very impressed with him both in person and in our video call.
