My husband & I have been patients of Dr Szostak for 12-13 years. I would never consider seeing any other Urologist. Completely satisfied with his care.

For the last eight months i have been getting treatment/taking numerous test at outside sources trying to determine location of the cancer cells. One visit with Dr. Szostak and he immediately recommended the proper test to be taken. Very professional, knowledgeable, understanding and a Doctor who takes all the time necessary to discuss your situation.
