I needed a urologist last year for a strange case of frequent weak urination with waves of pain. I saw Dr. Wen Wu Jin for a few visits.
He prescribed pills to relax the bladder, then pills to stimulate the bladder.
He did some typical prostrate related tests, and a bladder test. Nothing got better.
After six weeks I went to my primary care doctor.
She immediately ordered a CT Scan, and they found a kidney stone lodged in my ureter, and another urologist got it out, and I am fine.
But that was the worst six weeks of my life, and Dr. Jin never even ordered an x-ray.
What a poor excuse for a urologist.
Also, one test he performed involved having me lie naked on my side with my legs in a particular posture.
The nurse got me situated in the position they wanted me to be in and told me to wait for Dr. Jin.
Forty five minutes later he came into the room to do the test. Think about that.
Why not let me sit there comfortably for forty minutes, then have the nurse come in right before the doctor and get me in the position they wanted me? I was too sick and miserable to do anything but trust him.
Don’t make the same mistake.
