What Patients Say:
Dr. Stephany is hands down, the best pediatric urologist! She is knowledgeable, thorough and caring. At appointments we never feel rushed, and before we leave she makes sure that my son understands what she is saying, it's not all medical jargon...she talks to him in words he understands (important for a shy 12 yr. old boy). She takes her time to review everything and consult with my son's other specialists before making decisions. Rather than having staff call to relay messages, she personally makes the call. I have come to trust whatever she recommends...I have never felt like I needed a 2nd opinion with her!
