I am fortunate to have Dr. Lewis Kriteman as my urologist. He is a brilliant Surgeon. He is knowledgeable in the latest technological breakthroughs in his field of expertise. I count him as my personal physician, and as a friend. A talented man of medical science, he is down to earth, and as plain spoken as a woodsman. Hippocrates said, “There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.” Dr. Lewis Kriteman is of the world of science.

Dr. Kriteman is very professional and knowledgeable while still being very personable as he treats your medical conditions/concerns. Great bedside manner and easy to talk to about sensitive issues.

Awesome Doctor, as noted and announced on WSB. Dr Kriteman is down to earth, yet a consummate professional. Terrific bedside manner, positive, and optimistic even when delivering not so terrific news. He explains things at a level that the patient is comfortable with - if you need it simplified - he does it. If you are already educated, he will explain in technical detail as well. He displays compassion and empathy not found nearly often enough in today's doctors. I would not have wanted any other Dr to handle my surgery and follow up care long term HIghly recommend!

My PCP referred me to Dr. Kriteman, and I found him to be friendly, caring, smart and professional. He quickly assessed my condition and made recommendations, putting my mind at ease about the problem. I was so happy to find this great physician in my area, and will I consult with him in the future if any urologic concerns arise. Georgia Urology staff and his medical assistant were warm and responsive. The office seemed well-run and the wait time was very manageable. I highly recommend Dr. Kriteman’s practice. Five stars!

My first visit to Dr. Kriteman was 7-31-19. He was awesome. He listened, answered my questions and provided understandable responses. Very personable and easy to talk to. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kriteman is outstanding and contrary to other practices experienced, his staff is aligned and is a positive reflection of him by being friendly, knowledgeable and efficient as well rather than delivering uncoordinated and ineffective patient care.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kriteman for 10+ years. He is a true professional and I would not think of going to anyone else for my care.

Dr. Kriteman could not have been more professional and friendly. I was totally satisfied with his experience prior to having a procedure done. He explained everything througout the process. The actual procedure was quick and relatively painless and now, 2 weeks later, the results have been positive and dramatic. Also, I did not have to wait. The staff was prompt, friendly, and courteous. The follow up was equally as good.

Dr. Kriteman made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He wanted to hear from me. He wasn’t “on the clock” as in limited in the amount of time he could spend to understand my condition and then recommend a path forward. Very professional doctor and staff. I highly recommend!
