Dr. Kriteman is an outstanding physician .His bedside manner and that of his team members is a rare find. I have never felt this comfortable and educated about my health until I sought his expertise in my health concerns. He along with his Nurse Practitioner have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and tools to ensure that I remain in good health. From the time that you enter his office to actually meeting with him ,you are made to feel welcomed and cared for. He in addition to the members of his staff is a true model of health care at its best.

Dr. Kriteman is a good doctor. He connected easily with me, explaining the details of my condition and spoke in a positive and friendly way. It is not a surprise that he is considered a top urologist in our area.

Took over 8 weeks to get my appointment. I understand how busy & successful my provider is. I felt a little rushed when I finally made it in, especially considering the nature of the procedure we were discussing. In any case, this is not so much of a criticism as a suggestion that patients like myself appreciate when a physician can demonstrate a little more empathy & concern.
