My first meeting with Dr. Truesdale was in the emergency room where he was able to place a catheter in my bladder, to clear an infection which perhaps was exacerbated by a previous failed catheterization from an unrelated procedure. His professional and calming demeanor, placed me at ease which facilitated the process and calmed my nerves. Excellent bedside manner.
