Patient Stories: Joseph M. Has Total Confidence in Team
Our patients are the best. When Joseph M. came in for a kidney procedure he had questions. Throughout the process Dr. Stratil and the team were there to help.
What problems were you having before you came to RIA Endovascular?
I was diagnosed with a benign cyst on my left kidney that started to cause the kidney to enlarge and would eventually lead to other problems.
How did you discover RIA Endovascular?
RIA was recommended to me by my urologist James Fagelson. So, I made an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Peter Stratil. I met with Dr. Stratil and I felt immediately comfortable and at ease. Dr. Statil took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure to me in detail. The consultation was never rushed and Dr. Stratil made sure to answer any questions I had.
What specific result/outcome did you like most about this procedure?
The procedure went very smoothly and I was attended to by Dr. Stratil and two other RIA team members. They were great and reassuring as I went through the procedure, which went quickly and was actually painless.
How was your patient experience with the doctor and clinic staff?
Dr. Stratil and his staff were extremely professional, friendly, and made sure I felt comfortable during the entire procedure and the time I spent at the clinic. I felt the utmost confidence in the doctor and his team, they went above and beyond.
What would you like to share with others?
I knew from my first meeting with Dr. Stratil and the nurse (Aaron), that I felt total confidence in their approach to my treatment. In my follow-up ultrasound, the results were fantastic and the treatment was successful. I was also pleased I was able to see Dr. Stratil for this follow-up visit as well.
I would highly recommend RIA Endovascular. Thank you!
